In relation to my dead Kohler 321AQS on my 314 (http://www.wfmachines.com/forums/showthread.php/47177-314-starts-and-runs-fine-then-engine-started-to-die/page6?highlight=314+stalls) I am looking for a repower option.
This options appear to be:
1. Harbor Freight (apparently a Honda 'clone')...
Considering a repower for my JD317 that currently has a BS 18 hp IC twin. It is a good fit, however the following issues
Governor, exhaust outlet, barely adequate ignition and low max charging current.
Fits well in engine bay
PTO perfect fit without adapter Used stock JD...
I am a returning member with a herd of JD 300 series tractors. I find that I can not keep them alive without help from everyone. I will in turn share what I have learned in the past. Current project is going to be repowering a JD 317. I hope to use a 18 HP vanguard but I'm not sure...
