    LT1045 Flywheel issue

    I haven't had the problem you describe with a Kohler. B&S engines have those symptoms when one or both valves are out of adjustment.

    1250 Engine Trouble

    I have had problems with two 1650's that were very similar to the symptoms you describe. I focused on fuel problems both times. One problem was resolved by replacing the coil which probably didn't have a whole hour of run time on it, the other was a bad condenser. Both times the guilty party...

    Vtwin in a cub

    A few years ago I put a 25 hp Kohler v twin in my 782. Before installation I tried to put that engine in a 1650 frame but it wouldn't fit without cutting the sides of the frame.

    Rob, About two years ago I made that same modification to the deck on my 782, I found some blades the same length with a different offset. My cutting edges are less than 1/16" from each other. I drilled a 1/4" hole in both sides of one blade and installed soft bolts with a nut and then peened...

    Doug W. I tried to find used motorcycle hydraulic brake components to put dual brakes on a 782. The prices quoted on parts from scrap piles changed my Scotch mind after stopping at only two scrap yards. I have mechanical dual brakes on it now. I used the pedals from an off topic tractor. I still...

    Trent P. If you still haven't repaired your cylinder head I'll give you the numbers for a repair kit. It came from CARQUEST # HC 5334-14 it's called "SAV-A-THREAD" M14X1.25.The only thing I disliked about the kit was the price, as I remember it wasn't cheap. I have used mine a few times...

    Tim Z. I believe I had exactly the same symptoms you describe on my 1650. It was the coil, I tried a new one right out of the box and it did the same thing. I am using the old coil from my 70 Chevy pickup and have not had a sputter since.

    J. Chamberlin, I think the info you are looking for is found under the heading of "setback and bend allowance". If you do a Google search with that heading there is a ton of info on sheet metal work.

    Bill J. I bought a 149 with a 42" deck in July of 1973 from Dowling IH in Enterprise, Al. It has been primarily used for mowing and garden duty. It was on vacation for four years, during that time I was in Germany and Korea. It has had no major issues during its life and has never spent a night...

    Brian W. I have installed Kohler 23 & 25HP V-twins in a 682 & 782. The holes in the engine mount plate had to be redrilled and driveshaft length changed. I used small engine mufflers from Carquest on the 682 and made a pair for the 782. I used a relay for the ignition. It was plug and go, no...

    Jon Stevens, I put that mod on a 682 and trimmed the fan like you want to. I never could tell that it made any difference in the hydro temp. I only used that one for regular lawn duty. It might have made a change in temp if I had plowed for a few hours with it. I sold it a while back, it has a...

    Bill J. I bought a 25 HP Kohler V-twin for my 782 CC. Before I installed it I tried to put it into a bare 1650 frame just in case I wanted to make a swap later. It will not fit without modifying the frame. That's been awhile ago so I don't remember exactly what it would have taken to make it...

    K. Williams, I printed that info from his site a long time ago. I like to have things on paper, it's easier to reference what I need.

    K. Williams, Brian Millers website said to use a shell reamer 1.625 Dia. with plenty of cutting oil. I did several rods for myself on my brothers Bridgeport using a boring head dry. You just have to be extra careful when adjusting it. Use a keyway cutter to make recesses for the insert tang...

    Gerry Ide, Sorry I will try and get you a pic soon. To be honest it never occured to me, it just looks like 3 X's under there.

    Rob N. I put an extra set of blades on my 782. I believe they came from a Gravely, the offset is almost perfect. I had to bore the center hole to 3/4" and shorten them about a 1/4". The whole experiment was about $45.00 plus a couple hours of work. I have mowed about 15 hours with them and am...

    Daniel C. I had the same problem with a 1650 a few weeks ago. I eliminated the wiring harness by running a wire from the bat+ terminal directly to the coil. The new out of the box coil I tried didn't solve the problem, it still quit running after a few minutes. It has the old coil from my pickup...

    Charles L. I put an automotive tachometer on a 1650 before Kirk Engines introduced theirs. I had a friend build an electrical device that fooled the tach into thinking it was on a 4 cylinder engine. It agreed with a mechanical tach as far as accuracy. The problem was that the tach didn't last...

    David S. I don't want to insult your intelligence but are you sure your points are gapped correctly. I have a friend that worked on a 1250 about a week. He called for help, the points were out of adjustment. Have you verified the condition of the wire between the coil and the points?

    With all the talk about mowing speeds and increasing blade speed, I have to own up to an experiment. I mow most weeks at our church weed patch. It is rough and mostly weeds so I wasn't getting a satisfactory cut all the time and couldn't travel at high speeds. I decided rather than speed up the...
