Yesterday at 2:40 pm the K241AS Kohler roared back to life with no smoke, no knocks, and minimul tweaking of mixture on rebuilt carb. Today at 1:30 pm I took my first ride on it. I am amazed and pleased at how smooth and solid the 46 year old tractor is. Even the deck is smooth with no bearing noise. I've been playing with it all afternoon, and now that darkness has set in I wish it had lights so I could continue playing with it ! It seems to be more solid than the 214 and the 214 is a solid tractor too. The 112 just feels better proportioned and balanced to me. I'm really getting attached to it. J.

Looks Great John! You going to keep it in it's original clothing or are you planning a restoration for it? That would be one that I'd keep original. Especially since it's a 1969, and the serial number code doesn't distinctively list it as a custom color tractor. Just my opinion though, and you can do with it what you want.

Eventually I will probably do a complete repaint. It has had a amateurish repaint at some point, but it has original white paint showing in all the right places. The biggest disappointment is the seat. It has been recovered in yellow and dyed or painted blue. It does have the correct textured finish on the pan though. For now I'm going to enjoy and show it as is. J.
