    I like Kawi. I don't care for Kohler at all anymore outside of their hydraulic lifters.

    Won't matter to me. As long as they stay looking like the current machines do I'll never buy one. :nono:

    My zd 326 has 1200 hrs and my old 94 woods has 2000 hrs. Both run like a top and have had no issues of any kind relating to the motor. A well taken care of Kubota diesel should go 6000+ hrs without a rebuild. The 3cyl gas is about the same.

    You might have some minor things on the external of the motor go bad with the gas, but I don't even think you have valve adjustments with it.
