Just wondering can I get piston sleeve seals for a D17 gas motor. pulled sleeves to replace pistons and sleeves only to find the compression problem to be a burnt valve. also can a farm shop rebuild head using kit sold on Y/T store, valves, guides, springs and keepers. or do the valve seats need to be ground and lapped? thanks

Anytime you want to do a proper head job and change out some valves and guides you'll need to grind the valves and their seats. Also, not all new guides are ready for valves as they need to be reamed to the exact size. The new valves need to trued up and faced. It takes the special tools of a valve grinder, seat grinder, reamer, guides, stone facers, gauges etc to do it right. However, this is a simple everyday job for a tractor or automotive machine shop and the cost isn't generally all that big. This is the type job where the cost is really well worth the price. It takes someone that has done this work for awhile and has all the tools available. I don't think you'd be able to do it yourself with just hand tools and the results wouldn't be what you want.

You mean the O-rings on the sleeves? AGCO has them separately, maybe other suppliers as well.
