Kohler 321PT on my Raider 10?

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a Kohler K321PT. I want to put it on my Raider 10 but it has a recoil starter. My question is can I put an electric start on this motor and will it bolt up to my Raider 10 to replace the Tecumseh hh100

:text-welcomeconfetti: to the :rs:Postal.      I'm afraid I don't have the answers you need, but hopefully someone will be here soon to help.

 

The 321PT    P =pump model and T=recoil start.    The crankshaft output size may be larger than the HH100 requiring a different drive pulley and PTO.

For electric start you may need a new flywheel to get a ring gear.  Also if you want a charging system .  If you want charging will also need a stator and regulator

:WRS:     Many pump engines have a tapered crank shaft on the output side. You will need to make a mounting plate or (presuming it is the big block) find an oil sump with mounting holes on the bottom like this one.5980f54004c2b_Jaysoilpan005.JPG.e30ed2b903800a6ad8b3ddee65a1511d.JPG

      I was cleaning some oil residue from an earlier dumb move - I try to keep things clean so any leaks that spring up show easily . I noticed along the top of the block towards the center from the right cylinder's valve cover a cast marking , cleaned it off and found this -
       

       

       
      The casting mark clearly shows K532 .
       
      Now , is this a case like the single cylinder blocks that were stamped "301" but you had to check internally whether it was a 10hp or 12hp engine ? K241 & K301 blocks are stamped the same and that is common knowledge .
       
      But , what about the K482/K532/K662 twin opposed cast iron engines , same deal ?? Any insight on the blocks or anyone know for sure ?
       
      Or - did someone swap out the original K482 from this '74 D180 to a K532 20hp from a donor ?? Some of the tins seem to be completely black to the bare metal , while others are clearly red underneath the black - so some painting has been done and this tractor it has at best a sketchy history . At one time it lived at the welding shop next to me to the West , or at least for a short time . The folks I got it from are about 40 miles away in a rural area and the gal that sold it had told me her father had gotten it from the town where I live - from the local welder . His son that now owns/runs the shop doesn't remember it but it may have belonged to his Dad who started the business - but he does say he knows his Dad never bought a new Wheel Horse , he'd only owned a Cub or two that he remembered . Anyway , hard telling on it's history and a lot of mods/repairs have been done in the machine's lifetime .
       
      I'm just curious if this is the original engine/block - the tins are marked as a K482 / spec 35222b as it should be to match the '74 model year in the published model year reference list . The model tag was long gone off the tractor when I got it , the year came from figuring out the sum of it's parts as to the model and such . Maybe that casting mark explains why this engine feels so strong , there is a noticeable difference between the 482 and 532 engines before from when we used them in other industrial equipment such as Ditch Witch , ect . The 20hp version just had a lot more torque and grunt compared to the 18hp . The K662 is insanely powerful and quite underrated - I ran one of those years ago on a compactor with a gear drive transport feature - that engine is a whole different animal compared to the 18 & 20 versions .

      This engine has been bored .030 and has new internal parts installed. I purchased it from a man who was restoring a tractor and had the machine work and build up completed by a local machine shop. Part way through the restoration he decided to quit and sell off the parts he had completed. I have a Wheel Horse C120A that the engine lost a piston and I thought I could replace the k301 with the k321. As it turned out this engine has a cub oil pan and the pan from my k301 was not compatible. I repaired my k301 and now have this engine for sale. I removed the head and pan in order to take these pictures. The original piston and rod is with it and a rebuilt carb. It has new points, and the used coil. It is minus the shroud and the governor linkage. I had planned to use them off  of my K301.

      Hi folks Brewster Rob here, was gifted a Cub Cadet LTX 1040 in great shape other then a completely blown 19HP in-famous Kohler Courage SV590, today I acquired a 17HP Pro OHV CV490S in perfect running condition.... so I want to swap the engines. They have identical vertical shafts question is the electrical. The Courage had four wires coming from the engine red/green/white/purple, the Pro has 3 white, 1blk and 1 red.  I also have the alternator and regulator from the blown Courage.... might I be able to swap alternators???  I of course have the old Courage key switch I do NOT have the new engine key switch.........  Need help from the Red Square wizards and PLEASE think about the best result way to go here.... thank you in advance.
