Considering selling my Cub Cadet 107. In good shape, has been repainted at some point and has a little peeling showing primer but looks pretty good. Strong hydro. Engine is a Kohler K301 so has been swapped to the 12 hp at some point. Just put in a new head gasket, doesn't smoke. Has the typical Kohler noise to the engine but is only at certain rpm and loads so guessing it is the Kohler camshaft noise, runs real nice. Have the deck but spindles are pretty stiff from sitting might need new bearings, tractor has the pto and lift for the deck still on it. Could be a good mowing tractor with some deck work or great for around the garden or yard. Will try to get pics up soon. $500 obo.

Love the tractor and kind of hate to sell but I have some other projects and just no space or time for them all so it should go somewhere it will be used.

Sound like a woodpecker? That's what Piston slap sounds like in a Kohler. If so then it needs bored out and new piston and rings installed.Pretty easy to tell with the head off. If you can clearly see the piston rings when you put the piston down in the cylinder about 1/2 way then it's about worn out.


Improperly set Points will cause a similar sound due to detonation.
