So update!!!! Just heard from Navasota WC dealership. Kabota is going to cover it under the Warranty! Praise the lord!! Thanks for all the help everyone. If you need a great dealership see Frank!! Beyond happy and blessed! They have earned a customer for life! Have a great weekend everyone!
I've been following your adventure and am very relieved to hear this! Good on you, "Kabota!" (-;

Would still like to hear cause though, if you can find that out.

Congrats, man! <WHEW!>

This is very good news of course but as you say, it would be interesting to know what the issue was. The dealership should provide an invoice showing all the work performed since they'll be billing Kubota and hopefully we'll get to see it.

Outstanding!
Like the others who mentioned it, I too am curious as to what the heck happened to the engine and why.
Good for YOU!

👍 I am pleasantly surprised.

I would expect Kubota to be interested in finding the root cause so they may have the dealer send them the bad engine for tear down and inspection. If you hear anything back about what happened please let us know.
