  1. Question for engine rebuilders

    I have a K341 that gave up a rod a while back. talk about "Big Bang Theory..." anyway, I tore it down to see how bad it got inside and to my surprise other than the rod, and the very bottom of the piston skirts the inside looks great! the crankpin looked like it might have taken some abuse but i used a white stone (lightly) and some polishing paper and it must have been debris from the rod or piston because it came right off. i took some measurements and it does show some wear. the crankpin measures 1.498 to 1.499 (low limit is 1.499) and out of round a full .001 (spec calls for .0005 max) the bore measures .002 out of the wear limits and is out of round about .005. going to need a new piston anyway and i can bore it at work . no problem there. my question is, would you re-use the crank in that condition? I can't grind a crank at work... lol
  2. K341 governer/throttle adjustment

    Got the new Chinese carb on my k341 and I'm still having issues with it. When I open the throttle all the way with it not running everything opens as should but when it's running the throttle shaft on the carb only opens half way. As in the governer isn't functioning correctly or a spring is warn. It surges terribly and almost dies when you drive it. Definitely frustrating!!! Here's a video of it running. IMG_2755.MOV
  3. Amazon replacement carbs

    Has anyone ever used one of these replacement Kohler carbs from Amazon? Went ahead and ordered one for my 16 HP K341. The throttle shaft on the old one has so much play that I'm surprised the thing even runs at all. I've heard plenty of good reviews and also plenty of jeers claiming they are cheap and don't work as well. Looks like an exact copy of the Kohler carb. I guess we'll see for certain tomorrow when I get it put on...
  4. Kohler K Engine Weights?

    Does any one know of a reference link to finding the weight of complete Kohler engines, in particular the K321 & K341? If you know of no electronic data about this topic, but have one of these on the bench and complete, could you somehow weigh it for the benefit of group knowledge. (Sneak the bath scales out to the garage if you can). I'd actually like to see a listing of weights for the entire Kohler K series, if anyone can contribute any piece of this puzzle. Regards, Steve
  5. K341 With No Fire In The Hole

    Went to start up my GT 14 equipped with a 16 hp K341 yesterday afternoon. The starter spins like there's no tomorrow, but I've got no spark to the spark plug, so the engine's not firing. Tractor lights are working fine. I have been doing random work on the tractor and may have bumped or dislodged an electrical connection. The engine started fine last fall and has always started without problems. I'm the likely culprit here, but I'm not quite sure where to begin tracing the problem. Any suggestions as to the most likely place to first look to locate the reason I have no spark???
  6. I have a Kohler K341 on a GT 14 tractor. Its always had the typical .....what are they called?........pepper shaker muffler? on the tractor. I've had to replace them several times....they seem to just eventually burn up. I can honestly say even from day one whenever I installed a new muffler of this type, I really couldn't tell that it really muffled much noise, maybe a little, but very little. As usage time goes on, they all got nothing but louder. Of course, part of this is the sheer displacement of the motor......35.9 cu. in. = 588 cc. Think of it in terms of a slightly bored out Norton Manx 500 cc thumper with an open megaphone exhaust. Deafening! You don't want to be standing 8 or 10' behind a Manx when it being warmed up and the throttle is being "blipped" to do that, without ear protection. These older flat head engines seem to be much louder than the newer OHV engines which are common in lots of equipment now. I've owned and used this tractor for 35 years now, and I guess I'm beginning to become somewhat of a crotchety old senior, but its becoming annoying to me (the operator), and I in fact had one neighbor that ragged me out over the noise. It may be because they have a pool and spend a fair amount of time outside, and the pool is about 10-11 feet from a chain link fence that divides the properties. I'm really not that worried about the neighbor nearly as much as I am myself, or should I say my hearing. I already have hearing loss from years of firing pneumatic nail guns and listening to compressors and heavy machinery running on job sites. What are you other K341 owners using and doing to get more muffling accomplished? Surely there has to be a more reasonable solution which will allow you to hear yourself think after an hour or hour and a half of operation. Is there a viable, positive solution for this problem so my ears and head don't ring for an hour after just mowing my lawn? Regards, Steve
  7. I have a 1969 GT 14, 1-7741, which originally had a K321 14 hp engine that gave up the ghost. That was replaced with a K341 16 hp engine. The original rectifier was used when the new K341 was installed and performed fine. I am now in need of a new rectifier because of broken male spade. How can I identify the proper rectifier to match with a Kohler engine (in my case for a K321 or a K341), and what resource can I research to obtain that information? Regards, Steve
  8. Ceramic cylinder heads

    I was watching a few Tube vids last night on governor set up and came across a guy who had fitted a ceramic head to his K341. Q. Are they any good, are they expensive, where are they available from?
