Repower old Equipment
John Deere 317 Category
Available replacement parts listed below, please click product number to view more information about each replacement part.
Original Model: KT17S 17hp Kohler
The conversion kits do not fit the tractors that had Onan engines in them.
NOTICE: The 317 tractors are bad for the driveshafts going out on them. When replacing the engine you need to evaluate the driveshaft. If there is any play in it at all, it will cause the main bearing of the engine to go out, which would not be covered under warranty. The driveshafts typically last 1000-1200 hours.
If you change or have previously changed the driveshaft you may have to cut about 3/4" off of the flywheel stub shaft that your drive shaft slides on, when using our kit.

While we may have sold many engines listed above to be used for a John Deere 317 Category, we are NOT claiming these are exact replacements unless the product notes explicitly say so. Many original equipment engines may no longer be in production because of obsolesence or EPA regulations, so in some cases there may not be an exact replacement available. Our intention here is to show that other customers have utilized these in the equipment shown, but may have had to make some modifications to do so. If we know of any required changes, we will list those, however, some adapting during installation should be expected.
