Not to my knowledge. I would think that would really throw the balance off..... like A LOT!

What after market rod are you using that is so heavy it requires rebalancing the crank?

any of them are heavy enough that the rotating assembly needs to be balanced.

Don, with a .10" under rod on a k301 do you need to rebalance anything? Or just the larger engines?

when I say aftermarket rods I' referring to the billet rods by Kerber, Midwest, vogel ect

stock motors are so far out of balance I don't think the insert affects much but I think its a good idea

That's what I thought with stock engines the way they shake and carry on not be well balanced to start with. I fig the balancing was more for pulling engines running higher Rpms .

Anyone have a part number for an insert for a K301/K321 rod that is 0.020" under?

I just ordered a set of 4, 0.020 inserts from eBay to do this exact job,. I have 2 used Kohler rods at the machine shop to have them bored for an insert as we speak. I found out the application needed, can go std all the way to 0.060 under. Let's see what he charges me to rework the rod, will make future rebuilds a piece of cake, can use the same rod for any undersize I want. I have a k321 in machine work right now, with a pair of k341s and a M14 ready right behind this one for the machine shop.

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.
