7117 Kohler KT17S

Recommended Posts

My engine starts poping and loses power after it has been under a load for a while. I bought points, plugs, and a condenser, but can't get the timing right. Can someone tell me the specs and procedure??

Hi Dave, and welcome, didn't think my original reply was very helpful. Hopefully, one of the other guys can give you a clearer answer. If not check the links... On Kohler flywheels, the "T" stands for Top Dead Center, and the "S" stands for Spark Advance. When setting the timing, always set it on the "S." That's the 20° mark. If necessary, place a white paint mark on the flywheel and the bearing plate to see both of them clearly. Point gap for Kt17 is .20 then it should be fine adjusted with timing light.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
