Today, I bought a 1982 317 John Deere tractor (C317L195153M?), I bought it very cheap. (No, I have not had time for pictures but will ASAP). The tractor is a very good shape other than it has no engine or hydraulic pump.It has front mule drive and
deck. What type and size engine would be a good replacement and easily adapted to drive shaft. I did get the flywheel and adapter in the purchase. I would even consider trying to install a small three or four cylinder motor. I have a small front-end loader I plan installing on this tractor,
What type and size of rear wheels will fit on this tractor?
Does anyone off-hand know the bolt pattern and the needed off-set on the wheels?
All suggestions and comments are appreciated,
