k241 rebuild or not

Recommended Posts

i have a k241 that i got for free. the piston and rod are missing. cylinder looks good except for on the bottom side a large chip was taken out by the rod. i can take a picture of this to show. one person has reccomended boring and sleeving it. another has suggested leaving it alone, since the cylinder is otherwise in good shape it will not harm performance. i am looking opinnions on this. i am thinking of saving this motor for parts since everything is there. john

So long as the rings will not get anywhere near the broken area when the piston moves up and down it is probably usable. I would hone it and replace piston and rod. The lower portion of the casting bore is only to keep the piston running straight in the bore and does not affect operation. So long as there is enough material that there is no way that the piston can cock sideways to any extent during operation, then go with it as is. Boring and sleeving is somewhat touchy. If not done properly, it will cause lots of problems, even ruin the engine.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
