Hi all! I recently aquired this Case 130 that I've been after for years. I did a full strip down and repaint while correcting the numerous "repairs" that had been done over the decades. The original K241 was swapped with a K301 at some point (fine by me honestly) and it somehow runs fantastic with a cheap chinese carb swap even after 20+ years with no air cleaner even being stored outside. I will be in the market to either buy or build a front blade for it and in the future will also add a custom 3 point and front end loader. Looking forward to the knowledge and advice you guys can offer.

Beautiful work (y) As to the loader. It depends if you want a lightweight parde queen, or a working loader. A working loader will require full length frame stiffening or subframe, a super duty front axle with road worthy trailer stub axles and hubs welded to new heavy spindles, I won't even get started on the hydraulics ;)


If you are serious about a working loader you really want to follow this this guy 馃

Yeah I'm planning on it being a more "to scale" loader I plan mainly to use for moving snow and light duty stuff. Just one of those projects I've always wanted to build. And while restoring the frame I did reinforce the frame rails with 2" x 1/2" plate front to rear and beefed up the gusseting at the rear. The spindles were missing so I have some hardened 3/4" spindles off a random newer machine that I reinforced and modified to work with the case steering. Hydraulics are going to be fun though thats for sure.

Pretty sharp Jason, I too have a few 130's and 2 CASE (Lambert built) 2 stage snow blowers for them.
About you mentioning the K301, assuming you did not tear it down and measure the bore it is very likely that is the correct engine. Back when these were built Kohler had a shortage of K241 blocks due to so many orders from a ton of different equipment builders. So it was quite common for the K301 block to be used but only bored to the K241 specs
STD. 3.251"
.010" 3.261"
.020" 3.271"
.030" 3.281"
The K301 is
STD. 3.375"
.010" 3.385"
.020" 3.395"
.030" 3.405"
My first 130 which dad bought new had a K301 block and one of the 2 I have has a K301 block with K241 bore originally View attachment 127755
I only assumed it was a k301 because it still had the 12hp sticker on the engine cover so it is very possible that for some reason it had been swapped in the past. I never did think to measure the bore and I even had the head off for general cleaning and stuff. Btw you can send one of those snow thowers my way anytime!
