Transplanting K341S Spec 71223a

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am transplanting a K341S into an old C100 frame and 8 speed trans. There is no remains of the wiring, key switch, regulator from the C100. I am looking for simple instructions on how to wire the motor so that the charging system is working. I have run this motor off a battery to check that it runs but i have no clue how to wire it to charge the battery. All i have is the motor. So i will need help with part numbers of any other parts i will need. Thanks for any and all help you can give!!

This is a basic wiring diagram, of course the wire colors may differ but it will work for you. You don't have to wire the lights or the PTO or clutch switch but you do need to run the AMP meter wire the green and the red switch wires even if you don't put a amp gage or the pto and clutch gage on it.

This is a rather simple wiring diagram that doesn't include any safety switches. I would strongly encourage you to restore the safety switches to full function once you have completed testing your engine.

Thank you all very much!!! I think i will be able to wire my machine up with the diagrams posted. There is a part number on the first post for the switch but not for the regulator. will any regulator work? Thanks again

Maybe a picture of what you have will help us tell you what you need. Do you have a coil, condenser,regulator/rectifier or starter and relay ??. Not  all regulators will work.  Read this post.

Yes, the "Regulator" is actually a rectifier and converts the AC output from your engine to DC. Just be sure the body is grounded and the AC terminals are connected to the engine and the "B+" is connected to the "R: terminal of the ignition switch.

Bob, I do have everything to make the motor run, I have had this motor running by hooking it up to a battery and using a push button type switch to activate the starter solenoid. The only parts i don't have is the regulator/rectifier and key switch. The part number you have in your last post will help a great deal. I was out in the shop a short time ago and found a regulator that i think came in the box of pieces i got when i brought home the C100. It is a kohler # 41-403-06. do you think this will work for my K341 16HP?

Yes I do believe that is the correct regulator. As @953 nut said above make sure it is grounded . The bolts hold it down which is the ground so make sure it has a clean base. There is a B+ post that goes to the R on the switch it's the orange wire in the diagram.

The wiring diagram in post #2 will work but to avoid confusion be aware that it's pre 1976 B and C series. The 76's had a seat switch going through a double pole PTO switch. I'm thinking the 74 and 75's didn't have a seat switch but I'm not certain. :)
