I'm looking at buying a D17D that may need engine
work,its not a series 4. What I'm wondering is a
diesel 17 worth more than a gas 17 assuming both
are in good running condition. Any information is
much apperciated.

I Purchased a 17 diesel not long ago. A good, smooth running tractor but after it warms up it doesnt hold any oilpressure. It only holds 25lb when cold. When cold it will fire, usually there is no problem.

Assuming both tractors are in comparable condition, I would say the diesel would be worth more since there are fewer of them around. However be careful, because the diesel engines are more costly to repair if you get a clunker. Also if you live in cold climes, an engine heater will be a MUST on the diesel if you plan to use it during cold weather, they start hard when it's cold. I'd also give the diesel the edge in power, providing the engine is healthy. I've owned and used both, and I still have the diesel. It will still pull 4-14's anywhere on my clay hill farm here in Northern ILL. My gasser was more comfortable with 3-16s. Hope this helps. TED
