Just keep turning it counter clockwise. Take the tunnel cover off and you'll see what it's screwed into.

You shouldn't need it. The filter will mount directly to motor and side panel should still go on.

Re: 1811 back from the dead

It should idle smooth with the throttle lever all the way down. Also your rpms shouldn't fluctuate if you're not moving the throttle control. I had a similar issue and had to rebuild the carb and reset the governor arm.

I've gotten a few aftermarket starters for the KT17's and haven't had any issues. They just want way too much for the OEM starter.

Re: spark plugs??

I noticed that the KT17 kohler manual calls for the rv15yc plug and .025 gap which cross references to the #25 autolite. Is that because it's a breaker point system instead of the magneto like the mag18 and 20? It gets better. After doing the auto lite application lookup, it says for the kt17 to use...

Re: relief valve rebuild service question

Re: 1512 Diesel Problems!

Mine was starting to do something similiar. It would on occasion act as if I just suddenly throttled down and shut it off. It ended up being the fuel pump.

Re: Kubota D600 ?'s

I've heard they will go much longer than that before a rebuild is required if it was taken care of properly. If it's not showing signs of needing a rebuild I wouldn't mess with it. Mine has about 800hrs on it. That's supposedly still pretty fresh. I would definitely get the parts from Kubota, don't ...

Re: 1772 pto

I had to do this last year. It is a pain since you have to remove the radiator so I'd do a good cleaning of the radiator while it's out. I think there's two bearings in there if I remember correctly. Once you get the radiator out of the way, it's pretty easy. I would also check out the cooling fan b...
