kaw 601d
« on: August 20, 2012, 01:25:03 PM »
We have a gator 6x4 that has one of these and the crank bushing seized up on it. Contacted deere and they say they can;t get a new bushing have to get a new block for a cool g. or new motor for 1900. They said they were going to check with kaw to see if they can get just the bushing. my quiestion is if they can't what material should i use to have one made out of . the old one was almuinum but was thinking or going brass like i have seen in several old briggs flathead kart motors. anybody else done this before

I have had a machine shop make a bushing out of bronze. Unless you find someone with a good block.

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT. EVEN JOHN DEERE DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE KAWI MAKE A BUSHING. BEEN THERE, DONE THAT 12 YEARS AGO.

Lost cause I've already checked here at my dealership to. For some reason they want you to buy a block every time.

what is the exceptable tollerence on that? They do sell the pto side bushing and it has the same od and the pto side on the crank is 1.575 and flywheel side is 1.573 think'n maybe i can get by with just another pto side bushing
