Got my parts in the mail early this morning. That allowed enough time to put the engine back together and get it setting in the chassis. All parts are Kohler brand. Ring end gap is well within tolerance, valves adjusted, and breather is back together properly. Tomorrow, will finish hooking everything up and fire it off. WooHooo!

I have rebuilt several of these old Kohlers. I have always had them bored out as they were bad. The cylinder are in spec for the diameter in most cases, but they get worn out of round. I also have the cranks turned as well and install the oversize rod.

First, welcome to the forum. It is all back together and doing fine. Starting is getting easier, especially after it is warmed up. Surprised me a few times yesterday, as I had just hit the starter and it roared to life, even with it at low idle. It is a improvement over the heavy cloud of blue smoke the used to surround the tractor. I won't be working this as hard as some do their tractors. But to do hope to learn to use the 10" plow at some point. It's hardest job will be tilling, and not a lot of that.
