Been a member for a long while but this is my first time posting. My Father has a 417-A and I believe C series (can't remember off the top of my head but it's from the early 80s) so needless to say they got me into wheel horses and I've wanted my own ever since... Fast forward 15 years later and my wife's late grandfather passed an old GT 1100 down to us. The poor thing sat in his front yard for atleast 8 years... Probably longer going off how old the zeroturn he got to replace it was 👎. Finally got around to messing with it and so far we have spark! Looks like he replaced the throttle cable with an aftermarket unit, the cable is too long and hangs up when trying to choke, my local toro dealer said it's no longer available but did give me the part #109132 I've found one website that offers it but says it's "on order" with no eta... Any suggestions? I'm also trying to find a carb kit, spraying some gogo juice in her got her going but there multiple places on the carb leaking... One of which is a bronze colored ball on the side!? Sorry for the long post and for those that stuck around thanks for reading! If you have any tips, tricks or suggestions that would be much appreciated!
Before I re-invent the wheel, I'll ask. I'm putting a CH270 Kohler on my 857 to replace the trashed K engine. It appears the throttle cable needs to enter at the right side rear of the engine, instead of at the front on the K. I know there are a multitude of brackets that would make the job relatively simple. BUT where would I find details and where to order them from. If push comes to shove I'll fab something but I have a feeling a "factory" bracket would be a lot less work and need less refining. I know you all like photos so here are a couple. The last one shows how I think the cable will eventually run, maybe? Or will some kind of bell crank be the ticket? Ed
