We borrowed a Keene 2" backpack gold dredge with a Kawasaki KT17 motor on it. This has been discontinued and we can not find a manual for it. We need parts for repair and would appreciate any help we can get.

Hey bandit I saw a parts list on eBay for the Kawasaki kt17 not sure if it would help you out. I have the same motor and keene backpack dredge. I could never find parts for mine either. Good luck...

Online for $10
Could not find a kt17 on ereplacement parts:
Kawasaki Small Engine Parts : eReplacementParts.com
Not found at Jacks:
Small Engine Parts - Jacks Small Engines
I'm only finding the manual, a flywheel, and some other unnamed part.
You need a old, rundown looking buildng, old fart behind the counter sort of place. He'll know what the part is and where to get it from a 2 acre building full of parts.
