I've got a Gravely with the Kohler engine. I kind of want to get rid of it, but it isn't running. When it was last running, there was a lot of blowby and smoke coming out the breather, and the exhaust was smoking too. Looked like it was time for a new set of rings or more. Dad took it to someone who works on Gravelys, and we discovered that someone had welded the flywheel to the crankshaft, so the repair guy didn't want to touch it. I've since been told that you can simply drop the oil pan on a Kohler, pull the piston out and put in a set of rings. Not really the way I'd want to go, but easiest and cheapest to get it running again to sell. Would like to hear any thoughts about this.
Thanks in advance,
