kt 17 air cleaner cover

Recommended Posts


The air cleaner cover on my kt17 series 2 has a tube that can be turned so that the tube will line up with a vent hole in the muffler heat shield for cold weather operation. My question is can I use the cover from my old series 1 motor that doesn't have this tube? Would it harm the engine or effect it's operation? Thank you, Ryan

No problem, that option was for extremely cold weather. I have 3 tractors that have the KT engines and none have the cold weather air cleaner.

The tractor that I have been using for snowblowing the last 2 years has the snorkel that is getting air straight from the cooling fan, so it has absolutely no preheating, and no problems even at way below 0.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
