Make sure you follow the directions on getting the piston pins and rods in the right spot on the piston. The do NOT center in the piston. The factory and I&T manuals cover the technique for doing it right. Last engine I did came with paperwork on it as well. Do it wrong and the piston pins will carve a groove in your sleeve. If they'll even fit in.

No. Old rod bolts are fine. If this is your first D-17 gas engine OH, you'd better be made aware of the centering of the piston pin, or you'll be doing it again very soon.

I'm not sure what you mean. I've done one. I'm no expert on d17 overhauls but I don't remember anything like that. My engine came out of a combine. Is it different or did I get lucky? It has enough hours on it I'm sure it's fine but I would like to know for the next one.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
