16 magnum

Recommended Posts

I have a 16 Magnum that will not fit a engine mount on a C 165.

Can I swap oil pans with a k341 that is in the C 165.

Welcome to RS

 

You could swap oil pans  If teh magnum has the low oil switch you will lose that functionality and you may have to use some JB weld to block off a notch in the magnum block.  But it might be easier to do away with the isolation (cradle) mounting plate and bolt the engine directly to the frame.(Does you magnum have 2 threaded holes in the bottom of the pan on the PTO side?)  You would have to get a lower PTO mounting bracket, but that would be easy from several vendors here.

Can not read the serial - spec  number on the M 16. Does not appear to have an oils switch and from your pics it looks doable. 

The K341 was run with a loose head gasket and now smokes a bit . Have not removed head for inspection , may be valve guides as it runs good with no loss of power.

Make sure you measure the oil dipper...I seem to recall some engines had to use shorter dippers to clear the oil pan but I am not sure about that

I thought you and others would understand what I meant, but now that you are off topic my preference is a M14.

      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.

      The engine I was trying to Identify that has K / 5 on the block. By measuring the original piston we have determined the bore was 3.500, and that is what a K321's factory bore is, therefore  this engine is a K321. Thanks Bob
