19.5hp Intek, hole in block
Hi, I have a Mculloch/Husqvarna 42"ride on. It is 6 months old done about 40-50 hrs. The other day a rod flew through the block. A few days earlier I did an oil change, I checked 3 or 4 times to make sure I put enough in.I ran it 2 days later for 1.1/2hrs and then the next day I started it and after 1 minute bang!!
Its hard to get parts or info in Australia on these engines, but it sounds a little common. What would anybody suggest?
Replace it with a Kohler engine, or go back to the original Intek? The fella I bought it off is a Husqvarna mechanic and he reckons he might be able to get one wholesale. Otherwise theyare $1000!!
Anyone had this problem before ??
