Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. Generally speaking, it is difficult to swap out engines on a tractor. If you are trying to install a twin cylinder where a single used to be there are many modifications to be made. First, are the cables for the throttle. Then the muffler has to be replaced. The best is to order a muffler from a model that has the same engine as you are installing. Next, you have to be sure the shaft size is the same. If the shaft is different, you need to find a pulley that will work on your model. As you can see, you could run into problems. It is best to replace the engine with the same style. I searched for a complete deck but did not have any luck. The parts list only has the parts listed separately.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

You can use 917.271740 for parts on your tractor. The last digit in the model number is typically used to identify as cosmetic difference so you aren't likely to come across anything where the parts will not work.



You can use the fuel tank (pt 184900) and clutch cable (pt 175067) from the 271740 model for your tractor as those 2 parts work for the whole series of tractor yours falls in. Those parts may be ordered HERE .

I think you meant to say there is gas in your oil, is that correct? If so that will be a problem with the carburetor.

Let me know back if this is what is going on and I will see if I can get you lined up on how to take care of this issue.

If I'm wrong and the issue is something else just let me know a little more detail about the problem and I'm sure we can get it worked out.
