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.

I have the carb issue corrected and she is running to make her purty and get the odd and ends corrected...!!

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

Thanks....this was after a 4 year 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..

Glad you are up and running good now :fing32: You have a Katt related issue that should be taken care of asap since you posted a picture of the grill...
