It smokes when I gun the throttle and there is a steady stream of smoke coming from the breather.
It's been bored .010 over in the past but it's time for another rebuild.I think that it may have a broken ring or the rings were not properly Gauged.There is 1 slight groove in the cylinder but the hone will take that out.
I have a friend that has a good clean spare engine block he said I can have but it is a K301AS.
I'm afraid to put a used Kohler engine in my tractor that has Balance gears.
He said the K301AS ran perfect when it was pulled but it has been sitting for around 15 years,in his garage.
Knowing that my engine had been bored .010 over I can get rings for it but I suspect that it will need another connecting rod.I have a Long dipper rod out of another K301 sitting in my shed that LOOKS OK but I'm not sure if my connecting rod in the Cub is STD.
1 Rebuild K301A "I have very Limited funds"
2 Install K301AS and hope the Balance gears hold up.
3 Install K301AS AFTER removing the Balance gears.
The guy wants to keep a spare block laying around just in case his Cub 122 would happen to ventilate it's self.So he will get my block if I get his block.
Thanks in Advance.
