Well I had some free time today so I took a look at the JD 400 that followed me home last week. When the key was turned it sounded like something had been disconnected and it most definately had. Dont know the circumstances of this tractors last days running but I think stupidity was in on the party. The Kohler 20 HP is totally destroyed in ways I have never seen. The pistons were smashed to bits as were the connecting rods. There is a rather large hole near the filter and the bottom of the oil pan is loaded with broken parts. The crank shaft is in one piece but one journal has major scoring and a gouge in it like I have never seen. That leaves us with the camshaft that somehow got broken into three pieces. It is really tough to tell what failed first but I suspect it made quite a noise.
Someone ought to call TPS (Tractor Protective Services) and report a serious case of Tractor Abuse....
