I would think that Ash Stevens at GA Groundcare would take it on, he has done other such stuff and he and his team know onions. He is Wiltshire based though.

Has it done a lot of hrs ? and the guy i know is just north of Edinburgh, a rebuild kit dont cost much but the labour sometimes makes it a expensive way of doing compared to buying a new engine, Last time i enquired about a new V1505 none turbo the engine was about £2300 + vat,,

New engines are not expensive proper rebuilds are, crank re grind, new rings maybe pistons rebore, reface head, valve reseat I would replace before rebuild

i have my eye on a v2003 thats sat in the corner of a warehouse and has been for 12/15 yrs now, all shrink wrapped down to pallet as it was delivered from Kubota and its £1800, cheep yes,

Thanks guys. I dod have a Google for new engines but didn't find any prices. A new engine would seem like the best way to go.

 

The standard V1505T seems to be 35hp and my machine is 45hp so presumably I need the turbocharged engine.

The original V1505 is 34/35hp. The latest V1505 "tier 5" engines are detuned to 25/26hp to meet new emission regulations. The reduced hp is only adjusted back on the fuel pump.

 

V1505-T (turbo) engines should all be 45hp. We have rebuilt several Kubota engines but usually not for chargeable customers, doing it at internal costs on a part exchange machine we can rebuild engines cheaper than the cost of a new replacement. However by the time you invoice 2 days labour, cost of all the piston rings, gaskets, bearing shells, plus skimming, crank grind etc if required you are up to the cost of a new engine. And with a new engine comes new injection pump. starter, alternator, turbo etc.

 

Call Hurley Engines in Bath. They are a Kubota engine dealer and should be able to supply. If the lead time is months then a rebuilt may have to be the option!
