Really nice tin on that one. Why can't you do your own rebuild? What you need to look for is how much damage to other parts when rod broke. Kits on epay all the time for good prices. Manuals to download from Kohler or here with procedures. Pumps are rated 1000psi I believe, and real low on gpm, like 2, but not certain. IF you were thinking of a loader, they DID have bigger volumn pump for those, seems pressure was 2000 and gpm in 7 range, but would have to look for sure. Otherwise that pump is plenty for any other attachment you may need to lift. The blade is pretty heavy and it does those easy. Front weights are rarity, and rears cab just be off a IH Cub or A size tractor, same wheels.
Thanks that is why I saved it! I don't really have the time to rebuild it, and I was asking about the hydraulics because I am thinking of adding different attachments for it. Hydraulic dump trailer, 4 way loader valve for hydraulics on the blade. Eventually find a 3pt off of a newer one. Obviously all to come in the future. I work at a shop where I am fully capable of tearing it down if I wanted to, but the tractor is over and hour away from me because I live near the beach and I don't have much room to play with anything so I keep it elsewhere. There's a really good well known and reasonable machine shop nearby that will bore and hone the engine if I get a piston and make sure the block is to spec, lap the valve seats and match the valves for $75.
