Well from my perspective, the Kioti dealer and Kioti Corporate advisor did a great job getting this new Kioti up and running. However, dealer preparation should have identified the electrical harness issue before delivery. I always like to see 3 or 4 hours on the machine before delivery. Typically that implies those hours of run time were for dealer preparation.
I seriously doubt the fuel delivery rail needed replacement on the tractor. They are rated at 6000 hours before failure.
They had 2hrs 'prep time' on it according to OP, plus it ran for 30mins at the dealers when he picked it up after the first repair attempt and only failed again a couple hours later. Kinda hard for a tech to run your tractor around for most of day doing nothing else.
