Man you did a nice job! That engine looks VERY nice!!


Thanks I only hope it runs just as nice. Lol First kubota I've built. I give big thanks to engine power source out of rock hill. They turned the crank for me and I ended up with .0015 to .002" on the main and rod journals which is spot on. Never seen an inline engine where the main caps are actually split bearing carriers separate from the block. Very neat and simple design

I believe I'm going to modify the rear engine plate so I don't have to pull the engine out if i ever need a new starter.

Bellhousing plate cut so I can replace starter anytime without the headache. Left plenty meat to hold starter in place.

Those bearings don't look to have spun to me, no evidence of it on the main caps. And the lock tabs on the bearing shells look ok. They are grooved, which says dirty oil and maybe run low. Is the crank grooved too? Can you get undersized bearings?

Bearings are available in 2 different undersizes. Here's you a better pic. And actually one of the caps had gotten so hot it discolored.

Also May be tempting but I'd stay away from aftermarket engine parts for this engine. Just bite the bullet do it right the first time. Too expensive to do twice
