Kohler Command 26 HP Engine Problems
Hello: In 2006 I purchased a brand new Cub Cadet 1050 lawn tractor with Kholar Command 26 HP engine. I did a lot of research and everyone said it is a very good engine. Recently It started smoking from the right cylinder. The tractor has only 105 hours. During the past 3 seasons I have change oil regularly with Opti.. Oil. along with plugs and filter change. It is with the local dealer for checkup and I a waiting on the dignosis and possible solution.
I didn't know that this is a common problem on this type of engine as many have expressed in this forum.
Question: What should be my couse of action? Should I contact Kohler? It is out of warrenty but my rationale is if it is a known defect then there should have been a recall or TSB. Please advise as the repairs would be expensive.
