I have a chance to buy an flat twin in a cub. Don't know the model number. By the picture it look like it is a1975 or newer. Can't tell if it is a hydro or not. Is there any problems with the flat twins.
The series 1 17 HP KT17 had splash oiling. and the series 2 went to full pressure lubrication, with some having a spin on filter. All had the dreaded governor gear issue. but otherwise good powerplants.
Is it not a vertical shaft kt17 on my 1720? I usually deal with 82 series cubs and they are all horizontal with either series I or series II kohlers. Series II with presurized lubrication is a way better deal imo. Just so i know, whats the deal with governor gear?
