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 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.
