Denny, Scott, I have that Kohler factory PDF file that used to be online. Here's the breather info from it. Notice that it lists the K181 not the K161.

SCOTT - Both Kraig & I post FROM work... I had the same problem on a K181 in My 72 when I first got it. The little reed valve (#20) HAS to go in according to the manual/picture and has to seal the hole in the plate fairly well or You pressurize the crankcase and leak oil. And to be quite honest, It looks backwards in that drawing from the parts book, the flapper or reed valve should be towards the outside. The KOHLER factory service manual was avail. on-line but I couldn't find the K-series manual a couple weeks ago. Keep things clean...use selant on those two gaskets (#19) and your leaks will be gone.

Thanks kraig, Thats excactly what I need, I had a slight oil leak coming out of the governor shaft.So I assumed that the oil breather was plugged up.It seems alittle dirty but not really plugged.I even tried tightening up the large nut on the governor shaft but it was nice and snug.Have you ever had this problem????

Don A. I just replaced the teaser spring in both my 122 and 102 last week. You have to take the engine loose, but I was able to move it forward and lay it sideways enough to remove the clutch without taking loose the wiring, throttle cable, etc. (Of course you want to be sure and disconnect the battery.) It seems to me someone in the past had posted a way of using a 2 X 4 to support the engine, but I had no trouble laying it sideways -- towards the starter-generator. Oh, and I'd replace the teaser spring while you're at it. They're cheap and I've had more trouble with them then throwout bearings. Hope this helps.

Shane P,

I own both a 149 and two 782's and I've ran Quietlines in the past. Personally, between a QL and an 82 series I would upgrade to the 782 in the serial number range between 665001 - 719999 if possible. Lots of power, smooth operation and still have the IH transmission. One with a Series II KT-17 is a bonus.

MATT G. - You mentioned something interesting. My old 129 was the most fuel efficient mowing tractor. I could mow My 2+ acres on about 3 to 3-1/2 gal. With My 10 HP 72 stuck in low gear (it has the fast 2nd which I feel is too fast for a nice job of mowing) I was between 3-1/2 & 4 gal. The 982 almost always used 4 gal. The 129 was a dedicated mowing tractor, no weights, and the 44" deck took a wider cut and I always had the ideal speed for the load. The 72 has about 200# of iron on the back and always seems to be going too slow. The 982 & 50" deck with hydraulics is HEAVY plus it has about 150# of iron on the back. Mowing time with the 982 is about 2 hrs & 45 minutes, 129 was 3 hrs tops, and the 72 is 4 to 6 hours depending on where I run out of gas and the number of pitstops! The larger 4 gal. gas tank on the red tractors really extends run time. When the K321 goes in the 72 a much larger gas tank than the 5 qt stock #72 tank WILL be going on. Plans are for something around 3 to 3-1/2 gallon. I'll have to see what fits under the hood!

Mike R,
The Money Order scam is so notorious on Craigslist that the list puts a scam advisory on every page and email they send out. I listed my old '93 F-150 there, and had a buyer from Maine purportedly representing a church bite. I asked the question to myself: Why would someone in Maine be interested in an old pickup all the way down in MD. It also had that feel of a form letter, which is a bad thing. I ended up selling it locally to some Guatamalen dudes who drove it away without tags on it

Just the formatting and grammatical errors in both messages reminded me of the notorious Nigerian 419 scams you sometimes or often see in your inbox.

In other words, IH made the red 82s, CCC made the yellow 82s.

I recently saw a 1450 offered for a good price. Maybe I should buy it and paint it blue. (yes, I once saw pics of a very pretty blue QL)

Cash in hand is cash in hand. If you cash the Money Order and get cash in hand make sure they, the bank, cannot take the cash back. If your bank tells you the cash is yours keep it and give him the tractor. After 6 months return the extra money.

Hi all, I just have to share a steering wheel removal story.

First of all I could not get the dang thing to pop off, I tried all the tricks with no luck. Sooo I went with plan B a SAWZALL! I cut it just under the hole behind the battery box I figured I could save everything if I could get the stub out of the wheel. At this point the threads were still good and the wheel wasn't damaged. I proceeded to press the stub out. I took 2 tons of pressure to get it to pop! That wheel was not coming off any other way.
Now all I need to do is weld everything back together its saved.

I am very much interested in the Cadet 102 at your asking price. I read and understand it is in fair condition.At present i'm in the IRELAND on vacation.Meanwhile,i'll then instruct my colleague back in the STATES to issue out U.S MONEY ORDER in your name and having it in mind that business is based on trust,when you receive the check,cash it in your bank,deduct the amount due for the purchase[$175]and send back the remaining funds via western union
money transfer to my reputable shipping Agent,whom will take care of the pick up in your location.
Info needed as follows:
1)Name as to be written on check
2)Full address to where the check will be mailed out to
3)Phone # so as to contact you
Looking forward to having your reply and trust.

Warmest regards
