'72 Case 444
It's time. The old Kohler K532s has given up the ghost and I need to repower. I've decided to go with the Vanguard 23 HP, but I'm wondering where to get it. I want a kit that requires as little modification as necessary, so it seems I'm down to Jim's and Small Engine Warehouse. (If anyone knows of any other suppliers, I'd really appreciate any info, especially if they are close to Connecticut) Off the cuff it's Jim's hands down. SEW has a horrible reputation, and Jim's gets nothing but raves. I gave Jim's a call and that only confirmed what I have heard. Here's the issue, Jim's is $800 more for the same engine and kit. I am already scraping to figure out how to swing this, so it's kind of a game changer. Has anyone Gotten this engine from SEW for the 400? Did you have any problems? Or any other repower kit for that matter...
