    That is a gas engine, they are great but dont get the engine wet, the distributor cap is somehow gets water in it and it takes about 40 minutes to take off and dry out, that is the only draw back on that engine, I have owned 4 with that same engine and everyone I have owned are the same way.

    Tim,
    That was a common problem on that engine for a while. Kubota has an upgrade for the plug wires that is supposed to correct the trouble. It is covered under the Kubota warranty. Grasshopper had the same trouble with those Kubota engines on their machines.
