The D17 appears to be a nice looking old tractor but your description of the power director clutch causes me to have some concerns.

Itís not a matter of a simple adjustment shims must be properly removed and added to get proper clearance for the high and low part of the clutch..

Because of the Power director issues I personally would not want to pay $5800.

Iím thinking $3500-$4000 tops; for my money I wouldnít want to go over $3500

If the power director clutch needs work it could be $500-$2000 to fix it depending on what it needs. The tractor would need to be split which isnít a bad job.

Problem is once you get it apart you may find more trouble.

On the good side The D17 can have a 3pt made for it and a separate valve 2 or 3 spool open center valve with 1 one way spool (for the rear lift) and the other spool or spools can be 2 way.

This valve can be plumbed in to allow for 2 way hydraulics.

PS. Where does the hydraulics for the pump get its oil?

If its from a separate tank your ok but if its from the reservoir of the tractor maybe not so good because you cant add a spool to the current tractor hydraulics

The loader has it's own reservoir in the loader frame. The tractor already has a three point hitch on it. There is a two way hydraulic remote valve and connections on the back tied into the loader hydraulic system.

Everything you have said is a plus to the value of the tractor.

Personally i still question the Power director Clutch.

There is a chance it was miss-adjusted and all that is needed is a proper shim job.

The value maybe a tough call.
