Now THAT'S the models of Bolens I like! Wrong engine for sure with 17 twin, but rest is neat!  Some also had Tecs, anothe not so great deal.  No STATE listed for us Unknowledgeable guys here. Not sure why ads never state that?? Plenty of Cities all over US with same names and such....!!

From what I can find, all of the QT17s had Kohler engines:

 

79-80 = KT17QS-24106A

81       =KT17QS-24152

82-83 =KT17QS-24197

 

The QS16 used an Onan

Not wrong for model, just wrong for any tractor. KT17's are Junk. I own one in a PK that is acting up, but still running, just luck I guess! Most blow holes in crankcase and still run on other side! I DON'T think the series 2 mods are any better, no matter what they say! Just my .o2 with change, ha!
