Is there any of the other Kohler rods that will fit with a little modification? Back in the 60s. a friend fixed his 1923 Mity Cat with pistons from a Simca auto. I was thinking of a K301 rod with the dipper machined off or something like that. I am watching this with great interest because I have an HT23 that I plan to rebuild next year. Good Luck, Rick

I did try the rods from a different motor and all were to long and could not be machined to fit.

I seen the ebay ones and will not go that route as that would put the parts cost close to $1200.00 alone. As for the the other place they don't have them.

You might have to get a set of used rods and have Millers machine them for bearing inserts.He charges $25 labor for each rod grind and $17.50 for a pair of his best inserts.

My uncle is also looking for a set of K582 rods for his Super Cub.He stopped running it before it broke but it chatters pretty bad.He's pondering on a new Kohler CH750 30hp repower if he can't find rebuild parts reasonable.

 

He has a Cub 1872 repowered with a 23hp kohler.It had a blown KT series 1 18hp engine in it when he got it.He bought the K582 used and ran it in the cub for a long time.

 

Mowing grass with a big deck kills a worn out engine pretty quickly lol.

Bob, I didn't have any luck at my local places. I'm thinking inserts are the way to go on this one..

My father in law just got a Bolens HT23 with a bad motor. It is a Kohler K582.Just ordered all new parts to rebuild the motor and find out the next day rods are NLA. I am looking for a set of  .010 under as the crank needs turned because the oil pump went out. The part number for the rod is a 48 067 17 and I need two. I have tried all my sources and no luck so if any one has a old shop close two them and would check and see if they have a set sitting that would be great.

 

If the crank will clean up less than .010" under, don't grind it to .010"  A good machinist can take a set of standard rods and make them fit a slightly undersized journal.  This saves you buying new rods, plus you get more life out of your crank.

 

I had this done on a K341 Kohler... I bought a used crank to replace the one that was in pieces in the crankcase... the journals were smooth, but also a couple thou undersize.  A local engine rebuilder ground the crank just enough to make sure the journals weren't lopsides, and fit a standard conn rod to it...

 

Regards,

 

Smitty

Another thought... the K482 uses the same pistons, AND, IIRC, the same rods as the K241... I wonder if K301 rods would work on your 582???... just checked it out... the K301 has a different stroke than the 582, so I assume the rods are different.
