Crank un-installedPiston INSTALLED after honing.Crank installed after honing.
Last pic is honed.
Kind of blurry, took it with one hand. It looks better in person. It may not be professional quality but im 99.99999999999999999% sure it will work.
Did better than I thought i would.
So now, only ONE more obstacle. the crankshaft axial play adjustment BUT
I need someones opinion ( i took the piston back out afterwards) not sure if you can see it, but in the picture with cylinder honed, it's almost right where the glare from the light is, and on top of the cylinder directly across from the spot, it looks like the hone didn't get ruffed up. any ideas? out of round cylinder, cylinder wore and needs bored??
Dipstick shows pale color, dont think its water, smells like fuel, oil changed one week ago, level is very high.
First I thought it was water condensed into the oil...but someone pointed out the smell, and it doesn't look white-milky. And a half qt or so in one week?
So is it possible to get fuel leaking into the oil?

I have acquired an older Kawasaki Mule 2010 with KAF 540C engine. The engine is shot so I have the option to either rebuild or replace. I am thinking a swap to a three cyl diesel out of a Toro mower. Anyone tried this? The only reason I am considering this is because I have the mower which is inoperable. The engine runs great so just wondering if this swap would be feasible?????
