Default Cub 1650 K341 overhaul shop?

Howdy folks! I'm pretty sure it's a long shot, but I would like to find a shop that can rebuild my K341 and maybe add a little more pep in her step. It's going to be my regular worker for mowing and other small farm duties I need.

I live near Houston, and it seems most machine shops down here don't do small engine work so I figured I'd ask here.

I called Vogels and Lakota and both are fully booked for the time being.

Any other suggestions from the Cadet world?

Thanks!

My thoughts would be if you have a chance of finding someone it will
be in one of the smaller towns. Where folks still care about stuff like
small engines. The more people live there the less help seems to be
available. I hope you find someone. It's a tough chore finding help.

Ken,
I still haven't gave up looking around here for a shop. I can definitely do the assembly part, just not the machining. The folks up north have it made as far as Cub Cadet/Kohler/GT pulling stuff!

I have used Kustom Lawn and Garden for engine machining. I have yet to finish the engine project. From all preliminary checks, the machining was done properly. The prices were reasonable and the turn around was quick. These guys specialize in Kohler "K" series engines. here is my thread on this rebuild.

So you can disregard this bit of wisdom about small town help. After
waiting a month for a bore diameter from my small town machinist.
I called and found out he did not remember who I was or what the job
was I hired him to do. I guess he didn't remember the 3 prior conversations
either. I hope you are having better luck then I. This world is wearing thin.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
