Hey yall... Got a 782 cub cadet with the infamous kohler kt17 s1 in it. I am getting alot of missfire and caughing and suck. Oily smoke on startup/ thinking of a rebuild. **** good tractor. I can tell you that, but the fricken engine is prone to rod tossing. I live in ohio farm country which is flat as a pankake here so hills arnt an issue for lubrication. Anyway anyone ever had luck with the s-1 in a rebuild? If i did do one id check the crank and install new rods. Idk anybody think i should just wait and see if i can find an onan or mag 18? Or rebuild the kt17 and hope for another 20 sum years? I use it mainly in the winter for plowing so the hea isnt such a concern on the engine.
