:wave: First post here great to see all the fellow enthusiasts!

 

:wave: Well drove 4,5 hrs to get my latest tractor  after reading up on it here thanks guys!

It has the Kohler 361 but ran smooth and had a very clean head and block , two transmissions, tiller mowing deck,( to be researched about the install/swap procedure),a bunch of belts , and a bar with holes in it for the three point not sure if its a current dimension hoping it will hook to a cultivator or plow :thumbs:

I heard there are replacement engine if need be but not sure of my options in that department

well off to change oils and put it to work!

Hi, The engine in that tractor has already lasted 30+ yrs if original to the tractor.
Keep it clean it will probably last many more.
The easiest and least expensive replacement engine is the 14 hp K321 Kohler. If concerned start
looking for a replacement core engine from a PK.
Good luck.
Chuck
