  1. KOHLER 16 HP WIRING PROBLEM

    rmaynard OK small wire from positive side of solenoid to battery terminal on switch. wire from small lug on solenoid to S terminal on switch. wire from + ( pos.) side of coil to to I terminal on switch. wire from voltage regulator to R terminal on switch. Does this sound right? Also i used a voltage regulator from another w/h tractor will this work to keep the battery charged? From picture above of regulator do you think it was the right regulator? thanks for your help Karl
  2. KOHLER 16 HP WIRING PROBLEM

    GWEST_CA yes i think it got hot it melted the plastic pc . pretty good. It's funny the engine would still turn over even as bad as that looked. Haven't had time to mess with today. Do they make voltage regulators for wheel horse's that look like that?
  3. KOHLER 16 HP WIRING PROBLEM

    OK I got the pictures hope it sheds some light on the problem. I can not find any part # on switch. Let me know what you think, thanks Karl
  4. KOHLER 16 HP WIRING PROBLEM

    gwest_ca I have no idea what the box is . The 2 stator wires where plugged into it with the orange wire going to the ignition switch. There are no numbers on it . It got hot at some time to melt the plug.
  5. KOHLER 16 HP WIRING PROBLEM

    Save Old Iron the switch is a 5 spade switch. It has the same markings as the switch OEM 103990. But i could not find any numbers on the switch. P/o had a wire going from the Positive side of the solenoid ( big post) to a spade on switch. I wired engine like you showed me on diagram and put another voltage regulator i had on tractor but it would not start. With key on i could take 2 screwdrivers and jump solenoid and engine would turn over. Can there be more than on type of 5 spade switch? I will get pics soon and post them.
  6. OK i am starting another project tractor. I got a B-60 with a 16 HP kohler. Yes it sounds like over kill but i was wanting the engine. Engine model # is K341, Spec# 71179 serial # 2502701363. Where to start engine will turn over but very little spark. The B-60 is a 8 spd. 61-07K801 14890 6068. I think the p/o may have used the same voltage regulator i have pics. I want to switch wiring back to the basic wiring diagram like Save Old Iron helped me with ( see breakerless starter switch July 4,2012). From what i am told the B-60 had a 7hp kohler. My 1st question is will the voltage regulator on the B-60 work on a 16 HP engine? #2 is the ignition switch the same as a OEM 103990 ? #3 I looked up the voltage regulator on Kohler site and it did not give me an OEM #? #4 what amp stator is on the 16 HP ? I have found there are 4 different amp stators for kohler. The pics a the voltage regulator from the B-60 i think. I can not find any numbers on it. If this sound confusing sorry .

  9. D-160 WITH ONAN ENGINE /STARTER PROBLEMS

    OK guys got the tractor running good went out tonight to take pictures. I turned the key on the starter made a big noise and fell on the floor. psalms83:18 the started broke in the same place yours did. And it was running so good this ONAN does not like me . Do i have to get a new starter or can i get the bracket?
  10. D-160 WITH ONAN ENGINE /STARTER PROBLEMS

    OK Guys mission accomplished starter works and i got the engine to run for a short time. Cleaning gas tank and changing gas filter next. Thanks for all your help again. This is a great place to go to if you need help. Thanks Karl
  11. D-160 WITH ONAN ENGINE /STARTER PROBLEMS

    OK the starter is off here are some pics of starter and flywheel. Starter teeth look to be 1/2" apart , flywheel look to be around 3/8' . why they put the started bolts there ? Let me know what you think if this is the right starter ? Thanks Karl
  12. D-160 WITH ONAN ENGINE /STARTER PROBLEMS

    Well i got the starter off. Psalms83:18 it took me longer than you. I could not get the oil drip plate to come off until i got the top starter bolt out. I will get pics tomorrow but it looks like the wrong starter . The teeth on the starter are a lot bigger than on the flywheel. Does any body have a picture of a starter off of a D-160 with Onan engine. I am just about convinced that this will be the last Onan engine i will ever own.
  13. D-160 WITH ONAN ENGINE /STARTER PROBLEMS

    Like they said take the front half out to change a starter. On my tractor P/O had change exhaust pipe to muffler and replaced it with iron pipe and fittings . If only they had put a separate tin in front of the starter you could remove the starter a lot easier . If i have to remove exhaust i will put straight pipes on when it goes back on.
  14. D-160 WITH ONAN ENGINE /STARTER PROBLEMS

    OK to start with i have no experence with the D's or Onan engines. I got a D-160 the guy said the starter was bad. He said he had problems getting the starter out had to take engine loose and push it forward and move a lot of stuff to get it out. Is there a easy way to get the starter out without taking the whole engine apart. I took the one shield around the oil filter off. He told me i would have to take oil filter and drip shield off. I looked at shourd around flywheel and cannot see any bolts holding it on. He said starter would stick into flywheel when trying to startand have to pry it out (off) of flywheel. The owners manual say's it's a BF engine. If you have any ideas let me know? I was looking a owners manual and if it had been a Kohler engine it would be easy to replace.
