C-120 Relocate muffler (Kohler)

Recommended Posts

Would like to relocate muffler, does get hot in carb, fuel pump aria after mowing for an hour or so. Have heard some people have had vapor lock issues. I like the look of the factory muffler, but the heat. Don't want a big stack sticking up n the air. I have seen some with the smaller "shower head" mufflers but was wondering about noise (are they louder).  Have also seen a few pic's of newer tractors that looked like the muffler was mounted horizontally above the PTO. I think I even saw one with a small chrome heat shield. Also looks like the air from the engine fan helps to dissipate the heat. Looking for any one that has good pic's of or ideas about this.

Pepper pots and shower head mufflers are very noisy. Actually never experienced vapor lock...

Here is one idea on a 12hp

      I have a kohler k321. I picked this engine up at an auction and I don’t know it if it runs or not, I haven’t tried and don’t have the time. It has good compression and is complete. It would work in a wheel horse but would need to be wired differently. Pm or email me for details I will try to get back to you ASAP. The engine is a little dirty and could use a hose down. I can haul the engine to the big show.

      I have a K321S, Spec # 60424, S/N 14169017.  I was counting the cooling fins on the rear of the engine and noticed that it has 13 fins.  I read somewhere that 13 fin blocks were more sought after thatn 12 fin blocks.  If so, why?  Also is it possible to have a 13 fin K321, or did someone possibly change the cover in the past?  Also is it possble to tell is this engine has balance gears from the numbers?  I have read that some engines did not have them.  Thanks

      @WHX14, @Achto, here's the offending culprits of Kohler K161 fuel tanks on the CC ORIGINAL, that keep breaking the solder around the fuel outlet bung, any tips on repair would be greatly appreciated, as well a couple pics of the original engines/tins and the tractor with few upgrades I'm planning with the repaint, besides the K181 with ring gear starter out of a Gravely, Jeff.

      For sale is a kohler magnum 8. The engine came out of an 308 eight speed. I haven’t tested the engine and suspect it need some work to run. The P.O. said the fuel tank leaks at the grommet but I’m not sure. The engine is as is because it is missing a few things and has not been tested. The engine isn’t locked up it turns free. PM me or email with any questions I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. The only thing the engine appears to be missing is the air cleaner assembly but there may be more as I have not done much work on the magnum series kohler.
