Default Need to know difference in KT17 & 18 Magnum gov.rod

I bought a 20 HP Magnum engine with the small rod that connects the governor arm and throttle missing. Does anyone know if one off a KT17 HP will work as I have several of them. Thanks in advance.

A piece of coat hanger wire works well. Measure the distance and bend it up.

Yes you can use the kt17 rods, might have to adjust the gov arm, but prolly not.
I did not use the cub cadet parts look up to see if the part numbers match,
I'll let you do that.

The picture of the correct one in the book and the one that is actually on the KT17 are different. I'm sure they have different p/n's. Thanks for responding.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
