   When I brought home my 112 as a basket case that bolt was missing. Having never seen it and having never seen the clutch in action It took some thought to make something work. I don't remember exactly what I did but I seem to remember double nuts, a longer bolt and some fancy grinding/ filing. If I remember correctly I considered it important to modify the bolt and nut combination and leave all the existing  parts alone. Thinking the John Deere parts are expensive but I can pick up another generic bolt cheep. I will attempt to get pictures and a better explanation of my solution later. Don

      Sorry. Got sidetracked by a delivery at the food bank yesterday, then Had to take the wife to town today and totally spaced out on this thread. Tomorrow is another trip to town. Hopefully I will make it home before dark.   Don

All group members thanks for your help in maintaining my tractor over the years and helping me restore it, the JD is now up and running again. As much as I hate to do it I've decided that I'm going to sell it, every time I fix something then I run it once or twice something else breaks usually at a $50 minimum or more for the part.

Example after the sleet and freeze we had the cold weather caused the valve stem to come apart, had to go to discount tire and have them replaced.

 

Right now it runs and everything is working.

 

If you are interested and want to buy it, you will have to come to Texas and pick it up. Online it says that they go for $800 to $1000, I have a lot more of that into the restoration, so make me an offer!

Very likely so.  Changing a head gasket is really easy to do.  While you have it apart make sure you clean the carbon off of the top of the piston and head and then lap the head  before you reinstall it.  I'd offer a head gasket but I don't have extra stuff for the k181.  Bolens 1000 can get Kohler parts and I'd recommend using a Kohler head gasket.

Put a piece of fine sandpaper (200-400 grit wet/dry) on a flat surface and make sure the mounting surface is flat!
