    I'm doing some engine work on my 140 engine. Will this gasket set work? It says it's for the Kohler K321 and at face value looks to contain the same gaskets as the one from JD and others for quite bit less money. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Hi there. I am new to this site as I have just purchased a 1980 JD 400 with the Kohler 19.9HP engine. I purchased the tractor with the Blade w/rake, Snowblower, and Mower deck. Unfortunately the engine bogs down when the PTO is engaged to run the mower and will die if I try to drive forward...
