Well Jack thats true and I never looked at it that way!
Thanks

A white water kayaking friend told me that when I complained that we would probably not be able to go kayaking because there was a 30% chance of rain. Since then, I try to always look at the positive side. Oh Yeah, we went paddling that day, had a wonderful time and NO RAIN.  Jack

Ace, read your manual those little engines are a little touchy about the antifreeze not starting a debate here just follow the manual or you will be replacing the water pump again

good luck

Ace, could you post the part number. i would like to check if I can locate. Kubota has had grey market tractors brought in from other countries that have no safety equipment installed, but I have never heard of a gray market engine. They do have different divisions, such as KEA(kubota engines America), KTC (Kubota Tractor corp) and KMA (kubota machinery America  Assemble and loaders div) Our  dealership has contracts with all three. All of the parts come from the same warehouses. Your local dealer should be able (if he is willing) to order any part you need. I doubt that Dick Wright would use an engine you could not get parts for.

I am aware that you have your part. I just wanted to see if it is available through tractor side.

Thanks Ace. We have that water punp in stock, so it fits a tractor engine. You do have a lazy kubota parts man. We sell for $100.00 plus freight.

Again, I just wanted to check.
