Yes they were Kohler parts I took the rod to place and they said it looks good

I had bought some cheapies before and only wasted my $ on them. Plenty of times genuine oem is the only thing that works. I've learned that on many vehicles. Kohler points are only way to go for me.


A man can never have too many tractors!!
At least if your friends have barn space...

Quinn G.
There is a possibility that the new points arm is bent or otherwise screwed!
Put the old points in and try it!
Did you buy OEM Kohler points???

Mike S. Nice 70! Congratulations.

Paul B. Do you have an extra 7hp head? A PO actually drilled the spark plug hole out and inserted a bigger spark plug bottom into the new threaded hole and then put back the correct spark plug into the oversized spark plug's newly threaded hole on my Original.

Before I got new points the tractor ran before so I don't know if I'm gonna need to tear the engine apart but the rod is not moving so I can't adjust it

Just so you all will know, the new rods you buy today are steel composite.

Maybe I should check the points rod today before I drop the motor back into Iron Patriot,all this point rod talk has made me paranoid

Quin, I have the same problem w/my 1650.
Going to pull the engine and open it up to see what the issue is.
My rod is free to move in and out but acts like the cam is flat. points will only just start to open just a hair and that's all. New rod does the same thing, has no action at all.
Yes, you should be able to remove the rod w/your fingers, that is unless it is mushroomed on the inner end. it's only aluminum.

Take the rod out and post a pic of it for us.
