Can a kohler k-341 engine block with loose valve seat be permanently repaired by having a machine shop build up block,then machine to suit new valve seat?Or should I be looking for another block?Any one that has had this trouble tell me what's the best way to move forward. thanks mh44d.

I would think its repairable. I know I would try too fix it. Finding a block in my area, is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. Someone will be along with more knowledge than I, to help you soon.

yup/ those valve seats are replaceable. and a good engine machine shop has access to a catalog full of such things, they go by dimension not necessarily engine make/model, and can often modify a out of the catalog piece to fit perfectly, they may have to ream the block surface a bit to fix an oblong or beat up valve seat reciever hole.... for not much money.
