    for those of you who remember my
    thread about my kohler command 18 pro burning oil without smoking,
    after bringing it to another repair shop, they have found,
    three head bolts at 35lbs and one at 65lbs
    the head gasket is blown between the cylinder and the two push rod holes, bad carb,
    -0- comp..
    the dealer after having it for about one month has found
    comp, factory spec.
    carb rebuilt
    new plug
    leak down tested ok
    does not burn oil
    runs ok !!


    `now lets see if kohler stands by their motors ??? if not, im buying honda and selling my new scag wildcat, just to get rid of the kohler 27hp motor thats on it !
