  1. kohler k301 engine question

    Thanks. I am in Columbia SC and would appreciate any leads anyone has.
  2. kohler k301 engine question

    I have a wh 312-8, circa 1985 with a kohler k301s engine, spec 47812. I know that there is at least a broken piston and may have additional internal damage. I am not up to doing a rebuild myself since the last one I tried I put the piston cap on backwards and made my JD even worse. in other words, a clutz. So, is there a replacement engine that fits here? Does anyone know of a source for used kohler engines? A local small engine repair shop will fix it for an estimated $800 US and I understand a short block would cost about $1,100. Would anyone have advice on most economical, but long term fix for this?
