Hi everyone!

 

I am rebuilding my Kohler k482 but I have some issues with the valve guides. It seems as the valve guides on the exhaust sides are really worn but they remain perfect on the intake sides ? Any idea why ? Does anyone know if the valveguide for the k241 fits the k482 ? or do anyone know where I can get these parts ?

 

Regards

 

Jörgen

Its not unusual to find the exhaust side is worn more.  You don't get as much lubrication on the guides on the exhaust side due to the heat.  If the guides are really beat up, you might need to look at a new valve. 

 

I can get them for $16 each new with Kohler stickers. 

 

$12 each aftermarket. 

 

I can ship to Sweden for $25.

Yes depends on what your doing.  If it moves good and works I would just reseal it if all the guts are good.

The tranny is leaking out of both wheel axles and is weak when moving slow... Seems strong at full speed

The seal on the axle ends you can still get those you just need to pull the hubs off to replace them.

Wilberj. So you mean that I can change the seals from the outside without taking it apart ??
Another issue is that the wheelaxles can be pushed in and out of the tranny about 0,5 cm... Is that normal ??

Yes the seal on the axle ends can be changed without the rearend comeing apart. You do need to pull the hubs that about it.

Ok thanks, maybe I'll just start with that... Is there a special way to get them out of the housing when the hubs are gone ?
Sorry about all the questions but it seems like I'm the only Bolens freak in Sweden :(
