Exmark 72 Lazer Z with kubota 3 cylinder engine
I have just recently purchased a Exmark 72 Lazer Z with a 3 cylinder Kubota Diesel. The engine Model is D-902
I have a few problems with the mower, but I knew of them when I purchased it. Apparently the engine has a blown head gasket. I ran the mower to drive it off the trailer, but I cleaned the oil out and flushed the rest of the milky oil out with some clean oil.
When the tractor is started it blows a lot of smoke and it is sweet smelling, therefore I concluded that it has a blown head gasket.
The problem for me is that I do not know how to take off the head, to replace the head gasket. It unfortunately isn't as easy as replacing the one on my Hudson with a Flathead engine.
How easy is it to take off the head? And also what is the type of valves, ie Push rod, OHV, ect.

G'day and :welcome: pretty straight forward job if you have some mech skills I'm sure your engine is pushrod ohv but it just means a few more bolts to undo. When you get the head off get it checked thoroughly for cracks as unfortunately I have found those little engines are prone to cracking badly if they have been a bit warm and I know over here they are horribly expensive.
