Just bought this and am looking to see if anything can help identify the year and model number. The serial number is #232362 the engine has a plate with model K301A. Looking to do a restoration on it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Hey Marty - I must have missed it, or the Admin's poofed it, cause I didn't see "Pete" post anythingGordon,
For Pete's sake, don't worry about the changes. Just go get it!
Gordon - yup, but we also have lots of lurkers on here and every once in a while one does post something. Usually mentions they've been lurking a year or so, learning alot, but finally have a question. I think even Charlie says there are no stupid questions (even tho he sometimes gets a little ornery with a 2nd/3rd answer)Ask not and you wont know, ,...... ask and you get plenty of advice and lots of opinions with help from many very capable and willing CC tractor fans
Ken - what makes you think it's not a repower with a Kohler for a Cub Cadet??? I don't think a WH Kohler would work. They are turned sideways from the way a Cub Kohler is mounted and pretty certain the crankshaft output is larger. Not sure about an MF version.guess ill toss this one in here.. just got it yesturday... 125 also... looks like a repower with a MF or WH 301.. its painted all black not after market paint...
not a restore goin to use motor for a 127 and spare parts.. trailer came with it lol ..
harry u could be 100% correct. i have no clue .. still learning what motor went where lol ... it does have the deep pan . it has a normal style dip stick head finger loop on it .. on the cam gear cover. my 127 has a neriled < spelling sucks..i dont recall a fill tube tho on the S/G side.Ken - what makes you think it's not a repower with a Kohler for a Cub Cadet???

Lots of the Kohler repowers were painted black straight from Kohler (in fact every one I've seen). It used to be kind'a a mystic on here to have a black engine, that there was something about a repower that was better. I happen to like the black paint on the engine. I think it's a better color scheme.
ty . i have seen that done... no what i was saying is.. just seem in a lil diff height to rail.. but i think it was becuse its painted black. the yellow reflects more light..Ken,point cover screw....either factory or previous owner drilled 1/2 hole thru rail directly in line with bottom screw on 128 cover....the top is accessible over the rail...
