  1. I need some wiring help. I am swapping a Kohler CV16S from a Scotts (JD) in to a Crapsman YT 3000 that formerly had A Briggs engine. PO of Crapsman forgot the part about checking oil regularly. PO of Scotts changed engine oil but didn't own a grease gun thuse entire front steering gear trashed. Before you start throwing things at the screen, the resulting franken tractor (Scottsman CraftDeere?) is being donated for use in maintenance of a city park in the Mexican Town area of Detroit. The company I work for donates time, people, and a storage area for park maintenance tools and equipment. Owner is Hispanic and doe gobs of stuff for the community both personally and through our company. On to the question. I need to marry up the Kohler engine wiring with the Craftsman chassis wiring. The Craftsman chassis has the following wires coming to the molex connector that used to connect to the Briggs engine. Chassis Blue - Connected to Grey from the Briggs Chassis Blue jumperd to second hole connector - Connected to Red From the Briggs Chassis Black and Black with white stripe - both to same connector hole - Connected to Black from the Briggs Chassis Orange - Connected to Orange from the briggs Chassis White - this wire did not connect to anything on the briggs Kohler engine has the following wires coming from the engine going to Molex connector 2 Red - both go to same connection point Yellow Black White Can anyone tell me which Kohler engine wire goes to which Craftsman Chassis wire? Free Scotts Chassis with hydro (it would be a roller if the front axles weren't trashed) to whom ever can sort this out. Thanks, Paul

    520H wiring harness

    Hi Members, I am doing an engine swap in a 1988 W/H 520H replaced Onan 20hp with a B&S 18 hp twin opposed I/C. My problem is connecting the OEM main engine harness to the B/S, the B/S has a kill wire and the alternator wire go the the regulator. My problem is I don't know what wire is what in the harness and I'm unable to find a wiring schematic does anyone know the break down of the wire harness.. Any help is appreciated.. Thanks Joe
  4. Hello I want to buy the seat mentioned in Martin Howard's 416 adventures. I tried to contact him but he is not able to receive emails through red square. I have a 1993 WH 416-8 tractor. He used a KM UNIPRO 123 seat from www.turfseats.com Which seat switch do I use on the replacement seat? My used my FLUKE 88 dvom in auto ranging mode to test the original seat switch. With the seat switch disconnected I get a ohm reading and O.L when I sit on the seat. I am thinking that tells me that the seat is Normally OPEN. Am I correct in this? Did the KM seat switch come with a pigtail for wire it up? If not how do I install the switch? Where did you get the seat rubber bumpers for the swing up seat base? I believe they were black or grey. Also I installed a Briggs and Stratton Vanguard v-twin 23 hp engine swap kit from small engine warehouse. The hour meter does not work any more after replacing the swapped in engine. I was thinking that a aftermarket hour meter/tach from esitest.com would work. http://esitest.com/329.html My other question is that I can only start the tractor by turning the key and also turning the light switch ON to engage the starter motor. I am thinking one of the power wires in the white AMP engine harness connector is in the wrong pin position as I had to replace the connector. Please advise, Michael Kotarba mkotarba@hotmail.com
  5. I'm kicking around the idea of swapping my kohler 321 k 14 horse power motor for a diesel engine. Haven't figured out why my motor won't fire up. My thinking is if I have to drop a few hundred bucks on my old kohler engine, it might just be better to get a new one without spark problems. I was wondering if anyone else has done that swap in a gt14 and open to any thoughts on the subject. It is a working tractor. Or it use to be.

    1982 C-175

    hello new guy here . bought a C-175 , really like the tractor and did a bit of research before i purchased it . my spec number is 24200 which is puts itas a series 1 , i got mixed up when i bought it thought 23400 and higher was series 2 , anyway motor runs fine but dont like what ive been reading about the series 1 oil starvation . so my question is what engines are a direct swap with the series 1 kohler and wont cost an arm and a leg ? because it seems you cant find series 2 engines , but even if i could who rebuilds them?. i just want to be ready to swap when the time comes . i need to know what others have done with thier C-175 s when they have to change thier KT17 series 1 . thank you
  7. I'm looking for a little advise here. As mentioned in another post, the K-181 in my 1975 B-80 had massive internal failure. Initially, I thought the only damage was the rod and piston, but after a thorough cleaning and some additional inspection, I realized that there was a chunk missing from the bottom of the cylinder wall. I had one engine shop tell the me the damage is low enough and small enough that it shouldn't matter, however the machine shop was not so confident, basically saying it MIGHT be fine. That means I'm looking at $225 in machining costs plus about $150 in parts to repair an engine that may or may not be repairable. My initial thought was at that price point, it would be worth the relatively small investment to pick up a used block, but that got me thinking even further....if I'm spending the money anyway, what if I wanted to upgrade? I've done some searching here on the forum about engine swaps but I'm still a little unsure, so I apologize in advance if I'm asking a "what is the correct color" type of question! What I'm wondering: Is the K-241 (10 hp) or K-301 (12 hp) a direct bolt-on replacement for the K-181 (8 hp)? If not, what sort of mods am I looking at? What if it's not a Wheel Horse (Cub, Deere, Ariens, etc) engine? Is there a good resource for knowing which ones will work, or what to look for? In a related question, what if I purchase another K-181 block but it's from a non-WH machine, assuming I'm replacing all the guts, are the blocks fairly universal, or are they different depending on their original application? I welcome your comments and/or links to threads that have already covered these issues. Thanks in advance for your input! CB
