Well, I got the kohler k161 running good and finished mounting everything up today. Not happy with the tank mount. It will be redone. I couldn't resist trying the mower out. It cuts good but I have run into a couple of problems. The brakes are non existant and probably need replaced. Is there a source for them? I also have trouble with the drive belt not completely disengauging. It appears the brakes haven't been working for a long time. I think I found the adjustment for the brakes but now the deck belt is turning even more. I don't see an adjustment for the drive belt. I looked in my manual I bought off line and it doesn't seem to go into the adjustments.
If anyone is interested in my kohler swap let me know and I will start a build thread. I tried to make it look like it belonged in the little massey. Here are a couple of pics today. If I do a build thread I will start after the tear down for paint. She is a ugly duckling right now.
