So I'm conflicted.
I bought a tractor with an absolutely destroyed KT17.
Magnum 20, threw a rod and scored the crank. The oil pump gear and governor gear are unusable. Both cylinder jugs are full of rust from sitting with water in them. Non broken piston is missing the wrist pin.\
It needs a wrist pin, another piston, a hone job, a crank polishing, oil pump gear, governor gear, and an oil pressure sensor.
Briggs opposed twin, I'll buy it from a Cub 582 or a Craftsman, 16 or 18 horsepower.
Both have pulse pumps, both have magneto ignition,
Which would be better to replace the KT17?
