Advice,

I just dropped a bucket of $$ to rebuild a QT17, tiller and blower and might as well continue onto the 19210 48" mower deck. I will need blades and complete spindle assemblies as shown in fig 8-7 of the manual. I am in Canada so any suggestions on where to go or email?

Saved anther one from the scrap!

Bob

Bobo,
If you have manuals that are not already in the manuals section or are of better quality then what is already there then we encourage you to upload them to the manuals section.

Good Morning,

Got down to some tilling on my rebuilt QT17. Balanced drive shafts, new bearings and seals, repaired frame, repaired hydro, repaired steering. Talk about smooth! The old timer who did the work had never seen one before and was amazed at how tough it was built. What a sweet ride!

I need to stop by the Bolens forum more often, didn't know you guys (wilberj, mjodrey)were over here, good to see you still going to try and repower the Bolens with Kohler k341 single 16hp


MTF is my main place and were you will find me but I still like the job you guys are doing here and I do stop here every day but i dont post as much as I do on MTF.

A question for you all today. My QT17 is no longer charging the battery. Amp guage is in the negative. It has a Kohler. Checked all connections. Rectifier module?

Thanks

I mod at MTF, but this is my home nowadays and post way more here than at MTF. I find I haven't the time to go to all that many sites these days, so GTT is my main squeeze, so to speak.
OH, and where are my manners!
:welcome: to GTT Bobo!

Bobo, I am going to guess it may be the rectifier but I am not real familiar with the charging system on a Kohler. I am sure someone with more knowledge on them can give you better guidance.
