Does any one know if the 18 hp Kawasaki in the 4x6  prone to head gasket failure. A dealer brought a stripped down 4x6  2000 model said trany no good  but motor might be good? Pulled it of to side motor seized 2 days of soaking loosened right up. Fired it up today with no wheels hard to tell a bought trany belt clutches work forward reverse differential lock seems to work fine. I let it idle for 2 hours while I worked it showed a little smoke that I would assume from this head in photo. Trouble wit IP try for photo later but head in rear covered with oil film.
