I use my tractors for yard work including mowing the lawn.  The parts from Kirk have make both of them much easier to start.  Well worth the money in my book.

Ok sounds good. So with the 10 over rebuild kit do I need to have machine work done?

Yes... but make sure the .010 kit will do it.  A machine shop will be able to verify how far it needs to be opened up then order a kit.  I have an extra .010 kit that I did not need.

I called the machine shop and they said to clean the block and machine it will cost $65 but they won't install parts the customer brought in themselves

You can have them bore to match then install yourself.  Building a k series is not hard and the manual is available on the www.kohlerengines.com site

Yeah he said given there's enough there to only have to take out .010. Only thing I've never done myself is rings.

Service manual will walk you thru it.  Easy as long as you follow the order... if not you take parts out to install others.

Yeah looked through it and it seems pretty simple actually. Very detailed. So if you have the block machined do you need to have work done to the head too?

Have u had it running yet?  Might want to get it running first to see if it needs rebuild or not.  If it don't smoke and if the compression is high enough I wouldn't rebuild it.

couple of

No I haven't had it running yet. I just didn't wanna go through everything just to have to tear it back apart. It cranks but there's not any spark. Probably a good start is a battery, plug, coil, and points.

Can a 3 point hitch be added to the H1? Also if I found the whole H3 setup can I just swap it out and convert mine to the H3?
