What does a D-17 weigh. I tried one out that didn-t seem to have much "snap" when you pull down the throttle. Not like the WD-45's I am used to. Should they be as snappy at the throttle? Also on the hydraulic spool, the control spool for the 3 pt. has a handle to screw in or out which seems to affect the action of the 3 pt. hitch. Is this a relief valve setting, or does it control the height of the arms , or what.
Are the hydraulics on the series 4 good?

My brothers D-17 was always a little sluggish. He was doing a tune up before winter this year and found the screws that hold the points in the correct position in the distributor were worn out. This caused the timing to be off and not very snappy. New screws and holes re-tapped and the tractor was alive again. He has no idea how long this has been this way. The hydrolics on the series IV were always very good. We never had to adjust any of the settings. Tractor always had a full 2way loader on front and a blade or bush-hog on back or bale forks. Hydrolics always worked great.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
