well i got my kubota z751a engine today, needless to say ti ran great, only blew a couple puffs of blue smoke, probably from when the guy had it in the back of his truck. he started it 2 more times with no blue smoke. i think repowring my ht20 isnt going to be as hard as some may think. the flywheel end of the kohler k532 has a stub shaft i can unbolt and use. and the kubota engine has no stub shaft on the flywheel side, just a 6 bolt pattern. making the stub shaft work for the tranny wont be hard at all, just simple fabrication. and ill use grade 8 bolts and i know they wont snap. so yeah i think it might be a pretty easy project.

Sounds good. Wish I could get a diesel for one of my tractors. Can't wait to see the repower.

Couple of small bumps in the road. You can overcome them.
