Lets see....three kubota Z482 back to back would make for 6 cylinders and 44HP!

Or... you could put 2) 3 cylinder Kubotas on a common crankshaft and have a V-6 Diesel... wouldn't have to extend the frame as much!!

Ok, still waiting on bearings....... Dang it! I knew I should have modified these to the 4 bolt style !
Well, question; what type of grease goes into this box? And how much ? I have no manuals for it? And biggest question of all! WHO MADE THIS THING! Was it made by Howard? Or FMC, OR BANDINI? I have no idea, and it seems to be internet Savy in avoiding any identity theft.


I wonder if it takes 00 Grease. The rear end on my Snapper LT13 is chain drive much like your tiller and that's what it takes.

Why do these engineers do retarded things like this........ Use a bearing that's almost impossible to get!


Having worked with engineers most of my professional life, I can say It's because they don't have to repair what they design!! That, and they'll use a cheaper part to save a few cents on something... when you multiply that by 100s of thousands of parts, you've saved some money... the heck with the problems it creates for the customer or mechanic.
