I bow in humble thanks. that was exactly what i needed. now i can strip that puppy with the confidance that i almost sorta kinda justabout know what the heck i will be looking for. I thought i had the kohler manual but it must have been the MF provided minimal version. It sure didnt have that info or pics. THANKS AGAIN BG.

update on motor tick. took the motor out today , popped off the oil pan and discovered my original suspicion was correct. The actuation spring was the problem.It wasnt broken,it was gone. not even any pieces in the bottom of the pan. i was not expecting that. Previous owner must have cleaned out the remains but didnt replace the spring. my original post stated i pushed actuation spring and it moved about 1/2 inch. I was wrong , It was the tip of the small flyweight . nobody could have helped when i am giving incorrect info rite from the start. The noise was louder than a valve tick but way less than any piston pin,con rod,bottom end knock i have ever heard plus it was only loud at idle and vanished by about 2000 rpm. I guess at idle the flyweight could flop up and down causing the noise but pin themselves at their outer travel limit with increased rpm. the rest of the internals look perfect. I will look closer to make sure spring didnt jam itself out of veiw only to create havoc down the road. Thanks again to all who responded ,In particular Billygoat for pointing to the correct manual. And on a side note OMG olcowhand 6000 and whatever posts, How do you deal with keyboard cramp and computer seat rroids.... Im just sayin.

Rex, You're entirely welcome. I'm glad to hear that it was "just a spring". Are those replaceable, or do you have to get another cam?

The spring is available locally for 6 bucks ,12 bucks shipping,doesnt that figure. and it looks like it can be slipped over the cam and hooked over the flyweights with no further dissasembly. Gotta like that . all in all was as cheap and easy as i could have hoped for .

Thats good news Rex. I just got my K321 back in the 314 and running. I have very little experience working on these engines but I was impressed with the quality. I still have a few issues to work through with mine - probably carb related. It's not running quite right, surging and stumbling every now and then.

massey ferguson 004.jpg This one is messed up more than probably shows in pictures , fixable but ultimately easier to cut and bend a new one , Steel i have is twice as thick too , Like extra weight is a problem on a tractor .
