Chip; I too thought long and hard on replacing a Kohler KT17s. I put mine in a 782 Cub Cadet. Now that it is over, I have no regrets. I shopped around and got prices from $1,800.00 to $2,300.00 for a complete new engine. Darn near threw in the towel until I found a NEW complete KT17s in Fargo ND for $1,400.00. If you are still in search, let me know and I can get you the particulars if you should chose to order one. Can't imagine the freight would be that much!

You can go to the 22hp that is on the new Grand Sierra which is the same frame you have now.They haven't changed it. I have seen several with the KT19 in them or you can replace with a KT17 series II.

The Series II K17S has a pressurized oil system and an optional oil filter. It is a completely different matter than the Series I, which did not have a pressurized oil delivery system. The Series II is a much more reliable engine. In fact, as problems with the Series I began to crop up, Kohler itself told mechanics to avoid rebuilding the Series I as they came in and to replace them with the Series II instead.

Use it as yer replacement and get the optional filter if you can.

Hi just finished installing a Series 2 KT17S in my 782 cub that had an air conditioned block also, thought long and hard about it and bought a new Kohler haven't even started it yet(it came without the optional oil filter adapter so i'm waiting for one from Kohler (about $40.) i'm not going to start it until i get a filter on it)so i can't tell you how it runs but i can tell you it was simple to put in and so far i think it's the way to go. bought the motor online (better price than Northern) Will let you know how it runs later. John

Just installed a series II in my 1711 cub. I also purchased the optional oil filter. This engine runs great and was very easy to install. The replacement comes complete and ready to go. My advice, replace with a series II.

Will a series II work fine in an Ariens tractor that originally came with a kt17s 24317?

I've found different spec. #s for cub cadet and john deere kt17s engines.

how much is a series II?

A 24317 KT17 is a Series II - according to at least. Anything over 24300 is Series II.
