  1. General Repair
    I recently restored the dash on my 317. Below are several photos of the before, during and final product. I want to share my journey and am curious how others have done this same thing. I am pleased overall with the result with a couple minor exceptions that likely only I will know. It was...
  2. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hello all - This is my first posting to WFM after joining this wonderful site earlier this year.

However, this wasn't just a random 317 that...

I bought it off Craigslist here in NC for about $600 - I probably paid a little too much, but to be honest it was in really good mechanical condition and just needed a little TLC to get her to look good. I put...
