If I spent "over $1,000" rebuilding a single cylinder Kohler, I don't think I'd tell anyone about it!

They probably charged him $80 to $100 per hour labor. If they used original Kohler parts and replaced the ball bearings it would be in the normal realm around here. Auto shops charge $100 per hour in his area. It is expensive to live in CT. I have to rebuild several Kohlers this year and plan to spend $200 in parts for each. I am real carefull about cleanning and fitting so I'll probably have 20 to 40 hours in each engine. I save rebuilding for winter projects. Good Luck, Rick
