    As I am sure Boomer will chime in here, I know he was expressing is dissatisfaction with the resto-mod he made with the Honda Motor. I know he complained of heat while mowing and various other things. I have seen it plenty of times, nice work as usual but
    I can see the issue from the muffler.

    it was a GX 670 24 hp. ( 40.9 CID )
    onan 24 hp ( 60 CID )
    the hondas are great engines,
    BUT, not in a case 400 series tractor,
    same with vanguard and all of the rest.
    the exhaust coming out the crank output
    end of the engine is the killer.
    the honda has a new home. ( LX 250 new holland skid loader )
    i got a P 218 in trade.
    thank you .boomer

    I have a 444 that I repowered with a Kohler K341AQS a couple of years ago. Got the K341 with a package of Gravelies and a cub cadet 1450 that I bought. Split the tractors up and sold them individually, and had a free K341 and dollars left over. I swapped a few parts from the K321 over to the K341. It looks stock now, except that the K341 has a larger diameter exhaust pipe. I made up a quiet muffler system with a muffler from Jack's small engine parts. I am very happy with the setup, and feel that the cast iron Kohler is a tougher engine than newer current engines. I have a low hour Kohler command 25 HP on my zero turn, and while it is a nice engine, it is loud and the power is not impressive.
