  1. Engine Overhaul

  2. Engine Overhaul

    Hi All I am back from 7 days in Cabo with my family. On my door step was a box with the parts I ordered ( Yea! ). Here are the photos of the piston, in the cylinder and the engine going back together.

    Holy smokes that left a mark, maybe the governors was set too high🤔
  4. Engine Overhaul

    I think that the piston to bore being at the upper limit and the ring end clearance in to spec should be an improvement over what I started with .020 of piston clearance and .054+ of end gap. I will post my first start after I get back from Cabo.

    Here are some more Pic's The compression ring end gap was .057 and it should be .010-.020 the wiper ring end gap was .139 and also should be .010-.020

    Thanks for the reply I used a Starrett telescoping gauge with 3"-4" mike to measure the bore and I am very confident with the measurement. A .010 over setup will get with in .004 would that not be a improvement? The puzzle I have is the piston measure 3.370 to 3.368 OD ?. I believe after boring out the cylinder they used the stock piston My intention is to hone the bore change the piston/rings and get thru the season. Spring time I will do a complete overhaul on this engine. This Kohler is definitely worth the time and effort to rebuild.

    I started the tear down Look at the oil on top of the piston and the small divots in the piston I measured the bore and it is round at 3.389" and straight at 3.389" What piston size should I buy?

    Hi All I installed my new 7374 belt yesterday with outstanding results. My new belt was delivered in a bag instead of a cardboard sleeve. I believe that the sleeve will cause the belt to take a set in the location of the radius and then transmit a slap to the guards of my Tractor. In the future I will try to buy belts ina bag

    Hi All I installed a NAPA 5L820 Vee Belt on my tractor and it slaps how do I prevent this from happening, is there a difference in drive belt design that would cause this to occur?
