Just returned home with a fixer upper. Bought a Kubota L245. I don't know the year model. I'll record the numbers on the tag and do some research. The guy I bought it from told me, oil was entering the cooling system. I suspect it may be diesel instead. I've been searching for quite a while for a re-build project and hope this works out. I only paid $100 for it and she ain't purdy.
I worked 10 years as a mechanic, then 13 years as Service Mgr., at our family owned JD agricultural dealer, before moving to the Industrial Equipment rental market. So, it's kind of ironic I would acquire a brand other than JD to tinker with.
I hope to get information and help from you guys on the L245 re-build. I'll post a photo or two of the little Jewel later.
