Still, your mastery of that Kohler was amazing. Just keeping track of all those fiddly, little throttle pieces....!!!

  • I just got a walker... took a bit to get used to, but damn... i love it now! Shame i have so far digested two bricks, a star stake, and two foot of 3/8 chain that was NOT in the grass when i cut it two weeks earlier with the slasher. Someone resents my mower, me thinks... now the goats and fences are gone... destroyed the brand new finishing blades and when the D in the hub flogged out it took me a few days to build the courage to find exactly what made the blades de-synch... Might shove a kubota d722 on it one day, if the kohler craps itself... if i dont encounter too many more bricks... 😂

  • Also an issue on these is that if that breather gasket blows, you'll get full oil pressure (present under the same cover for the "oil command" sensor) into the breather system, and it will blow oil into the carb through the vent tube. That one threw me for a loop for a while, thinking the rings were blown.

When you got to the screen that you dug out reminded me of one that must of had a whole brillo pad stuffed in there tight... needle nose is a friend and pressure washer is a real treat if it don't need work too.

  • If you go old enough back to when they were making the Kohler K-series engines K91-K361 & the later Kohler twins & the magnum 18-20 motors, the dipstick just clicks in. If there’s an issue w the breather the dipstick will pop out pretty quickly. It’s just held in w a little rubber seal in a tube, snug enough to not move much.

    Michael BenoitMichael Benoit4 oy oldin
  • Putting RTV (silicone) on the o.d. of a lip seal is a risky thing. Lip seals have little vanes on the back (oil side) that create a "pumping" action to bring oil off the shaft and into the engine. Inevitably some of that RTV will squeeze out of that bore onto the lip of the seal. I've seen it happen. Seal will leak.

  • The only thing wrong with using steel wool is that it rusts, and usually quite quickly. It ends up rusting into small pieces that can end up in the sump where the oil pump picks it up. Brass wool is a better choice, because it will never rust - you can get it from marine supply stores. Also if a seal tends to spin in the case, it might be a good idea to use green loctite (seal retainer) to make it stay in place.

  • That looks to be different engine series but I have done head gaskets on a dozen of the v twin Koehler that we’re eating oil and had high crankcase pressure. The gasket fails in the area between cylinder and the adjoining pushrod/oil drain back passage. These are the CV730 engines that are 22-26 HP range vertical shaft.

  • found the parts catalog is online so you can only order the parts you need by part number , ( most of the engines use the same parts , except rotating assy ) the bracket that you thought for the fuel line is actually the engine lift point ( left front, right rear ) most of them are missing if the motor has been worked on out of the frame or covers pulled . another problem I have experienced besides the breather cover is the breather reed valve splitting/ breaking it also causes oil issues as it overloads the breather box with pressure and pops the gaskets . always check it if you have it open takes 2-3 seconds

  • I don't know if you guys have NAPA up in the great north, but they actually carry an impressive inventory of Kohler parts all the way back to the old K series motors. In fact, a K series breather element is about 3x that size and you could cut it down pretty easily. Looks like a similar material, but my stuff from 50 years ago never looked that bad.

  • Thinking about Gary: from reading the comments, it seems like including the cover would be a good idea *if it fitted* correctly. Is the wire wool such a standard hack that they actually expect you to do that? Does this design make for better access than a "standard" ride-on tractor-style mower? It's an ungainly-looking machine but seems to work OK - $20k seems a wee bit steep for a mower though.😁

  • While it was out, you probably should have put rings in it to cure the blow by problem. Kohler rings seem to lose tension, I suspect from heat because they are easily clogged with grass that can't be cleaned out without disassembly. I also enlarged the crankcase ventilation and added a positive crankcase ventilation valve on a couple of Kohler engines. That box on top of the engine doesn't help with cooling either.

    Tired old mechanicTired old mechanic4 oy oldin
    • I was guna say I hope it wasn't just blowby from wrong rings.. lol. What's the deal with the reed valve under There? Is that also just part of the crankcase ventilation? I have a carbed 25 hp that I've done the headgaskets on before, it consuming oil. I'm trying to decide if I'm even guna bother fixing it again. I think it might be the rings at this point, havnt even done a comp test yet. I was thinking about rebuilding it or at least just re ringing it maybe.

Why didn't Kohler design a slot on the bolt holes for the shrouds so the bolts would not have to be removed completely. they are a pain to line up. Glad I'm a retired mechanic.

    • Having worked in manufacturing, run a wholesale parts department,and owned my own business I respectfully disagree. Also I have used residential grade zero turns and 42 inch tractors. No comparison. You can sit here and think whatever you want but I have actually built comercial mowers and have friends within the guts of the factory. Margins are not good. Bradley n Worldlawn are more your speed. They are chinese frames, hardware with commercially available spindles, blades, pto, motors and hydros. You can get a 48 inch hydro walk behind bradley for like $3,000 vs 5 to 6k for a US made unit from toro, write, ferris, exct

    • Each wheel motor is about 1,200 to have rebuilt, a carbureted v twin is about 1500-2000 to buy new, that's a shaft drive deck so there's a pto shaft and gear box. If you can buy the steel, argon, and welding wire for $500 I need to know how so Ican pass that along to my friends that build Ferris commercial mowers and mayby they would pay more than 12 or 14 an hour.....

And that bracket goes where you put it the first time its not for the fuel line its for Lifting the engine out if you have a bad back
