I had the entire engine overhauled by my Kubota dealer, and when they went to return it to me, the engine started knocking. They returned it to me in disrepair. I pulled the head off and rhe cylinders on the new block are damaged.yeesh, google wasn't much help ....
curious, why a short block..is it busted real bad ??
Thank you sir. It looks like I will be divorcing myself from Kubota after 61 years, and just liquidate my tractor, skid steer and related implements. Kubota has really gone down hill recently. Very disappointing. Probably go Mahindra or John Deere. But still need to repair the V3800 engine somehow.Don't know if it will help but-
I've been looking online for a kubota excavator.
Every search I get several listings for engines that fit the equipment that I'm searching for. Usually on equipment trader.
Based on your details above it would seem that the Kubota dealer who rebuilt your engine should be warrantying their work. Why are you ripping it apart and looking for the solution?I had the entire engine overhauled by my Kubota dealer, and when they went to return it to me, the engine started knocking.

I started the engine and it sounds like the rods are not even connected. I am assuming there is significant damage Basically, everything else is new on the engine. It has a new crank shaft, bearings, connecting rods, cylinders, block, heads etc. Because I can’t find a machine shop or Kubota dealer to do it right, it appears a new short block (built correctly) will get me up and running the quickest.
