This is my 317 that I just got today. It has the series 2 engine...thank god..:drunkie:. It was running very well, however it now will not idle correctly without having more than half choke....maybe some crap in the carb..?? fuel filter ??...water in the gas ??.....time will tell.

The deck is a 50'', it will need spindle bearings throughout the deck. The lighting harness for the headlights was removed at one time also.

It came with a snow blower also, JDpart #M00338X and it does not fit this machine....anyone know what the blower will fit ?? Can it be made to fit ??


Not bad for $700.00 and delivered.

Nice 317! Could be dirty carb, fuel filter, or filter in the Tank. Also could be a air leak around the carb causing too much air to get in. More likely dirt in the fuel system tho.:fing32:

I run the 338 blower on my 180 and see little in the way of mods (someone did fool around with the lift rod at some point but I'm not sure if that is anything), so I think you can also include the whole 160-185 series in your ad.

Those older Deere sleds are awesome, and you've got a great example.

Thanks....this was after a 4 year restoration...here is my you tube channel with vids of this sled prior to the resto..I sold this sled and got $900 for it..payed $50 for it back in the day. However I have 3 more of these in the works and they are much better than this machine was when first purchased..
