For what it's worth; the Cast Iron Kohler motors all came Gloss Black. You've got the best motor in your tractor, why change its color?? The contrast makes for a really nice looking package.

I agree with Boney,however when I repaint something I like to keep it as close to original as I can.Except when I do custom paint jobs for others on their Harleys and old show cars...I like doing the custom painting but not sure it would really look good on the tractors...might try it once someday though

well thanks for the tips.maybe i should paint the 410 m orange and paint the 410 s black since i have two i can see which one will look better.p.s.where can i get a manual for a k241.forget where some parts go.and also would a 12 hp kolher that runs but smokes when you start it be worth 350.00.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
