Not that generation, only the '72-75 years had the oilpan welded to the frame because it was also the front axle pivot as well. Those were the good ones!! The 76 models had the engines bolted to a plate that was welded in.


I can verify that, it makes it much easier to swap in a clone engine.

So, just wondering, why do you suppose it blew up?
Maybe thick cold oil. Not flowing yet, and you drove it out into the snow bank too soon?

It ran for ten minutes just above idle. Oil was checked before start up. Never got the blower in to the snow bank. Was six feet away from it Must of scared the thing and blew up. Rod or split piston. Is my guess, at this point. May get it home tomorrow. Have to use the trailer again to bring it home. Hope the roads are dry.

That's what the "K" stands for in those series of Kohler's, Kabloom! LOL , they almost give you no warning and ka knock!! Tink tink tink...all done!! Most of the time it's from the rod failing at the bolted bosses, this is why the cranks will look good .. Some times the dipper fails to lube them... Then it gets messy...metal all over, failed crank, and some cases, the rod is welded to crank and punches holes...this is with out balancing gears, those just add to the failings.... And really make a mess.....

I can attest to that! My K341 was running great  and mowing up a storm. A small screech and nothing!
