Tried a google search of this site since could not find a [search] button on this forum. Unfortunately nothing came up. Hopefully someone has a few hints for me.
I've got a Kubota L235 with a tired D1102 engine. Sorry Im a little OT to "garden" tractor since this is a bit larger model that "garden". more like Mini tractor...... butttt.... nothing wrong with fishing different waters.
Apparently this engine shares a good bit of design with the D1302 thru the 1502. Some of the blocks are even nearly identical. Questions Im not finding answers for are how identical? With D1102 parts getting scarce and wanting a little more ooomph anyway I'm seeking info on what I can do with some part swaping such as maybe bore my 1102 block to fit in D1302 sleeves and upgrade to those pistons (read that the cranks and Piston Rods are the same). but cant seem to find out what else may be similar. Such as is it the same IP just tuned up some and given a different part number..... or is in the samp pump with larger plungers and different part#.... is head basically identical.... but larger valves and different part # etc etc.
Members of Kubota boards are great people.... put purist.... who dont look at things this way. Too them you go by the book.
Anyone know of a board where Tractor pullers hang out and discuss engine mods?
