    Question about Kohler k181 engine

    Question about Kohler k181 engine

    Sounds like your IH Cub Cadet has a cam with a compression release built into it. That would explain the reason for the intake valve popping up some. Can you provide a spec number off the engine tag?

    Gannon Seeder - I think

    Here are 2 attachments that go on the Viking: The Viking is used plenty. I used it to build radio controlled off road dirt tracks, grade garden tractor pulling tracks, level driveways and reseeded my front yard. I just finish seeding a grass waterway at the family farm.

    Rear End Oil

    I use Hy-Tran in all my IH Cub Cadets. Mainly because I have a few hydro IH Cub Cadets and I get my 5 gallon bucket refilled at my local Case-IH dealer. I check the price of the Napa oil-$18.99 a gallon.......without my discount. I may have check with local Napa store
