I am working on a K341 engine with a WALBRO carb and it has a loose throttle shaft. My question is there a replaceable bushing on this shaft? Also at my local dealer today I was told carb kits are no longer available from Kohler. Are these kits available after market?  I would be very appreciative for any help or insight.  Thanks

There was not a bushing in it from the factory but there is a kit for it from kohler that includes a busing and new throttle shaft. As for carb kits not sure what you local dealer was thinking as I just got 30 new kits from kohler.

Maybe the dealer didnt want to be bothered with an "Old" carb.... Seems to be the case at alot of shops today.

Like Bob said parts are still available.

Thanks for the quick reply bhts.  Would the carb body have to be machined to accept the new bushing? This is my first carb rebuild so I'm a little unsure of myself. Thanks again.

Years ago my Grandfathers 70 110 needed an oil slinger.The repair shop said he couldn't get the parts anymore.Grandpa called the local J.D. dealer and they told him the part was still avail so he bought it, took it to the repair shop and the mechanic told him well I could've got the part for you,i didn't think you wanted to fix something this old.

It has been awhile since I did a throttle shaft repair but if I remember correct the throttle shaft hole has to be drill out to accept the bushing. If you need the kit for the shaft or the carb just give me a call tomorrow and I can get you the stuff you need. Just remember to take your time and you will have no problems doing it.

Bob is right, anyone with a good drill and good with the drill can do the throttle bushing replacement.  A drill press is nice, though.  Follow the instructions in the package and dot all the I's and cross all the T's and you'll be fine.

If you have some brass rod and a lathe handy, I have machined out a bushing and pressed in. Its worked fine for the last 8 years.
