Repair 140 or 317?
Posted August 22, 2011 - 07:15 PM
I found a second 317 (for parts) which had a broken rod in it's type 1 engine, and my neighbour has a 140 (1) which has a destroyed transmission - foolishly attempted to tow it on the road. He had a merry ride when the hydro locked up solid!!
Completely removed the teeth from one internal gear, plus other damage.
He really liked the 140. Engine started great in the winter. burned no oil. He used it on a daily basis year round - pushing snow with a homemade blade, cutting grass, or just out for a drive.
With the parts available, I could put the hydro from the second 317 in the 140, and have it going again, or option 2, put perhaps the 140 engine in my second 317 chassis.
Questions for group.
How difficult would it be to fit the single cylinder from the 140 into the 317?
Would that be a better option than repairing the 140?
