I forgot what I wrote about these engines, yours is a series "2". :thumbs: My mistake and I'm sorry for misinforming you.

That's cool I thought it was series 2 but wasn't worried.

Still need side covers hood fixed headlights, but for now it mows great. Still got to figure out if it sits for a while I have no spark. But when you get it running as long as it is still warm it will start right back up. Never came across this before.

I love my 317. I have the original series 1 in mine. Just started to smoke a little this year. The other big thing to watch for on these is the drive shaft. I found a site that has them for $200 but from the sounds of it they are pretty tough to change. It is about time for one for me and I am waiting until I need a new engine and a paint job.
