That all depends,which way is the flywheel facing on the Kohler?If it is facing the front of thee tractor ,then the Kubota flywheel will need to face the rear.

If the Kohler flywheel faces the rear ,then the Kubota flywheel will need to face the front.

Do you see what I am saying ?That will make sure the hydro is turning in the same direction that it was before.

I may have missed it, but which side of the engine connects to the driveshaft.....crank output, or the flywheel?????????

IF your flywheel on the Kohler connects to the driveshaft, then the diesel must be connected to the fan end of the engine's crankshaft. IF your hydro shaft connects to the crankshaft output side of the Kohler, then the shaft must be connected to the flywheel end of the diesel.

its the opposite end of the flywheel on the kohler, which may work better for me since i THINK the flywheel stub shaft on the kubota is lower then the fan belt end.

OK, then the flywheel of the diesel will couple to the hydro.

Likely won't have a stub, just depends on it's previous use. I had to build my own stub on my metal lathe. This is not a job for the faint of heart I'm afraid. You're likely out-gunned unless you can find someone with the tooling to mentor you.
