Question K241 Rebuild

I have been looking at rebuilding a spare K241 with a knock, for several years. It is my favorite engine for my ground engaging equipment. Over the past week or so I have it mostly dissembled. Still working on the flywheel and PTO pulley (waiting on puller from “parts by Jeff”). With the head off I noticed that the piston is one place where there is “knock”. It moves back a forth a lot in the cylinder.

I have contacted a machine shop that is very far behind and would only bore the block and grind and crankshaft if it were taken apart.
My question for the moment is what to do with the main bearings? The manual says they are most always ok.

My second question is what rebuild kit to buy. Does anyone have a favorite vendor?
A 122 with weights and a deck for mowing trails.
100 with loaded ags, three point for ground engaging brinly cultivator, brinly disc, thatcher, cart.
Elec Trac E15 for finish mowing.

I've rebuilt a few and have not run into any that I needed to replace the main roller brgs. I have purchased most of my rebuild kits on ebay from bakt4kids and have been very satisfied with the parts and they will customize the kit however you need it !

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.
