They are raised flat castings the shape of the logo , which is alloy tinplate with the logo's etched on. I have never seen a knd yet with the serial number stamped on the front hopper i.d plate. All that has is the hp figure, speed etc and patent numbers and Kubota Osaka Japan.

OK, so NOT cast into the hopper - just trying to understand whether mine never had them or if they could have been removed.

Behind your exhaust should be a raised round (wish) area for the base.
On the back side is a cast in oblong raised area for the base which is held either by small screws or hammer drive rivets, mine is missing so I'm guessing on the fixings.

Your exhaust, is it 3/4" BSP or 1" BSP, and where did you, or do you get the flange from ?
I have made a flange from 8mm plate and a M/F 1' BSP elbow, but it's a bit massive and only just seals around the port.

I also have a just found problem to deal with, crank case is cracked and leaking oil just above the mount lug under the exhaust.

Got you (at last!), no raised areas on hopper casting so I guess mine never had the badges.

So despite several attempts at welding the block it has been deemed as scrap.
The cracked area is very thin, maybe a 1/10" and right next to the heaviest area, the mounting foot.

A replacement block has been obtained and I am now just starting to strip the donor out before cleaning and painting.

So my 'new' engine number will be KND3 058346

The rest all seem to be 6
My new block is only 30 or so different to Jon's running one.
Both mine, and Jon's running one came from the same source I believe, and were imported together.
