Can someone post a picture from where to drain the hydro fluid on a 317??

 

I have searched and searched and so far no luck.

Since I have one of these laying in the shop, it looks to me like you take the big tube loose and drain from there.

From either side of the tractor you will see a large hard straight down from the threaded end of the filter.  That is the line you use to drain the system.  IIRC it is something like a 7/8" size or ???

Trav1s, if you look that the second picture Kenny posted are you talking about the one tube that is coming off the bottom of the rearend? (way below the filter)

Take the big tube loose that attaches to that fitting. May have to loosen both ends. The first pic shows the rear end upside down and the hydro is not attached.

You don't have to take the fitting out.

The best Pic i have is this one that shows the hard line that goes up the left side of the tractor (on the seat) and down to the front of the pump below the filter.  This pic is looking at the assembly like you were standing at the front of the tractor looking back.

Guys, thank you very much.

 

I was able to get the filter changed, fluid changed and now it moves on its own again, whew!

 

This 317 is one I got a while back and had no idea if anything was wrong with it. Now to get all new tires and figure out if I happen to have a good 317 deck laying around.

 

Is there some way of looking at the mower decks to tell if it is the correct one for a 317??

Here is a document that shows the attachments (including mower decks) that fit your 317 and other 300 series tractors.

 

Hope it helps.

I looked out in the shop and forgot that I had a new pair of AG's stored away so I had the mounted up this morning for the rear.

Harlan, after looking that attachment over it seems like there are several different decks that might have come with it. I also see that maybe the draft arms might be different on the 317 compared to the 318??  If that is the case what is the difference between them??

Not really sure what the dimension differences would be. I would guess that trying to use a deck not recommended for your tractor would not work very well, and might not work at all. Would certainly need those draft arms adjusted, probably a different belt, etc.

 

But hopefully someone here at GTTalk can speak to your question much better than I can.

When the 317 was originally sold, there were two decks available at the time:

Model 41 = three blade 38" cut (uses long front arms to attach to mule drive)

Model 48 = three blade 46" cut (uses short front arms to attach to the mule drive)

 

These decks were also used on the 120/140/300/312/314/316Kohler

 

Draft arms that attached to the frame on the 318/322/330/332 are different due to the move to the "open frame design"  Swapping arms allows the later decks to be used on the earlier machines.
