I need some motor options.

This time of year my PK doesn't see much use unless I'm pulling a trailer around the yard. But I like to crank it at least once a week to keep the battery up. Well, after 3 years of great service, my 1612's crank and rod have decided to part ways. They haven't come apart yet. It started as a light tapping and in less than a minute, was knocking hard enough to feel it in the seat. I shut it off and pushed it into the garage.
I haven't pulled the motor down yet to survey the damage. But in case of the worst, what options do I have? Is a rebuild financially feasible or do I save for a new motor?

I rebuilt a 14 hp K321 using a kit from the same ebay supplier as indicated above and was very happy with the quality of parts. I was also able to get a .020 under rod as this engine had been redone a few years ago with a reground crank and had just broke the rod. I bought the pk to rebuild and resell and a .020 rod is not available from Kohler.

I would certainly use them again.

Good luck.
