After closer inspection on a larger screen, that may be a GT17. Can anyone tell by that pic if that is a KT17 Kohler? If it is a Series One, I might pass on the deal even if it's close. Don't need that headache.

It would be an excellent candidate for a diesel engine.

What would be excellent would be if the seller actually responded back to inquiries. Still on CL, no responses to emails, no phone# listed.

Ya know the blower is worth about that much. So you would be getting an almost free tractor with the blower. :smilewink:

I am new and don't know a lot about Ariens GT's but I did buy one last July and after some (OK a lot ) of work it works just fine.  I have a few things more I'm going to do to it but there is no rush.  I want to build a cab, put lights on it that don't just shine on the snowblower chute, and I found a nice blue strobe light for the top.  But for now it's dress really really warm before going out to snowblow.  100_1994.JPG

So, do you know why the Ariens doesn't fire until the switch is released?

Your saying when you start cranking, it won't fire until the key is in the run position. 

I would agree that the switch might be the problem. I would start there and if that doesn't straighten it out, start tracing wires for a bad wire.

One of my S16H's the Black one does the same thing you could crank it all day but will not fire up till you release the key to the On postion. It is not something i am concerned about as i only have to let it crank One or Two turns & release the key & it fires up.. Kind of like it that way as if someone went to Steal it they would Kill the battery before it ever started. lol

I'd be more inclined to say that someone put in the wrong switch.
