    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Over the last year I have been restoring and reviving a 1980 John Deere 317 (Onan Re-power) that was scrapped due to numerous issues. One of which was this intermittent ignition issue where it would start and run for a bit but then die after a while. I replaced the ignition coil because of...

    I've got a 317 that was repowered at some point with an 18HP Briggs Vanguard. The Ogura clutch on it was fried. I scored another good, used Ogura-same model. Installed it on tractor but it seems as if the rotating "stator plate" ia riding WAY too close to the field coil. First time I fired it up...
  6. 314 steering rebuild - what are the bearing parts?

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I'm rebuilding the steering column on my 314 after it exploded open (the connection to the tractor frame was loose and it pulled itself apart). I've found most of the parts under the full assembly AM35339. However, I only see one bearing set #11 in the diagram. All of the internal retainers...
  7. KT317 oil pressure relief valve removal?

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    One of the reasons I decided to tear into this engine was because in addition to blowing a lot of smoke and using lots of oil, when I put some STP and some 40 weight in, the crankcase pressures built up so high it blew the oil filler cap right off the top and sprayed engine oil all over the...

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hi all - running a snowblower on the front of my 317, but the hydraulic lift only goes in one direction. If the hoses are connected one way the snowblower goes all the way down, if the other way all the way up. The lever does nothing. I've not worked on the hydraulics at all on this tractor...

  12. 317 KT17 series 1 rering - which ring size should I use

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I'm putting new rings in the right cylinder of my KT17 series 1 engine. The piston has STD stamped into it so I understand it's probably the original. The bore is not obviously scratched or scored but oil is seeping into the cylinder when the engine's not running (and blowing smoke when it is)...

  14. 317 keeps running

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I have a 317 that has developed a strange problem. It doesn't want to stop when I turn the key off. If I jiggle the key switch or the wires behind the dash it will stop. I replaced the key switch with a new one and no difference. I am now thinking that some of the wires in the bundle may...
