Is the sheet metal shrouding on a kohler K301 needed for extended operation such as mowing? Mine is all cracked from vibration due to bad drive shaft, since repaired.

You MUST have all the shrouding, or the engine WILL overheat & destroy itself!

I agree with Daniel, it's not going to last long due to over heating. I have some k031 sheet metal, if you need it. Also if you look into the drive shaft that I posted for you, you might check with that guy and he may have some for your engine that he can sell you and ship in the same box, to save on shipping.
