Default K341 Rebuild?

Hey guys,

I've got an older Kohler K341-S in an old hydrostatic Allis-Chalmers 416 tractor.

The engine is starting to burn a lot of oil. The only time it does not burn oil is if it is brand new SAE 30. Once it gets about 5 hours on the oil though, it just starts burning it like crazy, and lately i've been noticing some oil on the muffler, coating some of the fins on the starter side of the motor. When I had pulled the head off in July, had noticed that the cylinder bore seemed to have a gap around the front and back side of the piston.

I'm guessing oil on the fins and spraying on the muffler is from a bad rear seal.

I guess my question is on average, what is the cost of having the block bored/honed out, and valve seats reground if needed.

I've seen rebuild kits on ebay that include all the gaskets, connecting rod, piston and new valves, but I have no idea if t these kits are any good, as a brand is usually not listed.

Thanks in advanced.
