Looking for some engine information here guys...
Can anybody tell me about a Kohler engine replacement for the K-series engines that were referred to as "Magnums"? My mind always goes toward the twin-cylinder K17's or Mag 18's when I hear that term, but did it also apply to the K-series replacements as well?
Have a question. I have a 14 hp in my 123 right now. I finally got a hydraulic setup that I am pleased with for the tractor. Question: Is there any way to make the drive pulley stick out farther on the back of the engine. The way it is right now, I would think the pulley is unusable. If this were going to be a forever fix, I would place a pulley on the drive shaft and be done with it, but I plan on putting a correct 301 in it this spring. Any thoughts. Here is a pic I took from ebay of the flywheel set up I have.
and yes I realize this is 12hp not a 14 and that this engine is from a QL. . . just look at the flywheel shroud)
Charlie, Your 169 looks great! I sure hope you don't break an axle with all that weight hanging out there!
Leigh, Thanks, I added a cap full of Marvels Mystery Oil to the fill of gas, seems someone mentioned that before. This is kind of a tired engine with refinished tin. I put in 1 qt. of Mobil Drive Clean 5W20 Motor Oil and ran the engine about 5 minutes and drained it out. Now I'm ready to fill with my 30W oil. I'll add an ounce of Marvels Mystery Oil as you suggested to the oil too. I use 30W in this engine year round, but don't use the tractor in the winter.
