New engine for 269H

Recommended Posts

WS MCKELVY

Hello,

 

My name is Bill, and I am new to this forum. About 10 years ago I bought a 269H and it has faithfully performed all the tasks asked of it. The other day I checked the and topped off the oil, and proceed to start cutting the lawn. About 15 minutes in I heard a loud noise followed by an evil vibration. Thinking it was something with the deck I shut off the PTO. Unfortunately the noise and the vibration did not go away. I shut off the tractor and pushed it back to the garage. I checked to oil again and found it to be half gone. After topping it off again I started it up, but the vibration and ugly noises were still there. I am 90% sure the engine is shot.

 

I have been trying to find a replacement for the Kohler CV19s-6553. I am not having a lot of luck. The closest I have come is a CV620. Does anyone know if this will work, or of any other models I might want to look at. I live in maryland and have thought about getting it rebuilt. Any and all help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Bill

I'm not familiar with that engine but what I can do is give you a ref to some knowledgeable people in Maryland ( Jarrettsville )  that may be able to help if you decide to re-power .

 

I've dealt with these guys before and they were very helpful on the options for a re-power of my Dads Troy Bilt Pony .

Some other guys will probably chime in and want more specific info on " exactly " what this engine is doing .

Thanks Much appreciated. Like I said, I am 90% sure the engine is toast.  Now my options are to put the 269 to rest and down grade or repower. Ill try to give them a call tomorrow

I sold my 269H a few years ago running strong.  I can tell you the hydro usually gives up before the engine.  I see most folks give up trying to fix them due to not finding a good hydro unit for it so you may luck out finding and engine.

It's funny you should say that. About 2 weeks ago I ordered a rebuild kit for the hydro cylinder. This after testing the pump and and other components and finding them good. I havent had a chance to rebuild it yet due to this latest disaster.

      Hi all, I am new here and I am wondering if anyone could help me out. I have an old Horse CA-120 special model # 133619 in excellent physical shape with a dead engine. Is there a modern engine that I could use as a replacement for this model? I would love to get this old girl running again before the nasty winter weather sets in.

      Hi Everyone
      I am trying to locate the part number for the accessories belt that provides power from the mower deck to the pulleys to the double bagger on the 269H. Any and all help appreciated.
      Thank you

      I have a late 90's 269H with the Kohler 17HP motor.  After cutting for about 1 hour I turned it off, tried to start it about 10 minutes late and it would not crank.  The dash lights turn on (oil, battery, parking brake), I can hear/feel the relay click but the starter will not turn.
      All fuses checked All relays checked no broken/frayed wires  
      Solenoid will not engage when crossing the terminals with a screw driver and key switch in on position.  Is this a defacto solenoid issue or do I need to check other things?  Also, I am showing that the part number for the solenoid is: 52-435-02.  i found one at http://www.milfordpower.com/R12130-Starter-Solenoid-Replaces-Kohler-52-435-02S-p/r12130.htm
       
      Thanks in advance for any direction or advice.

      I have been watching the thread of using Preditor engines well my 857 had a K241 that threw a rod.  Since that was not the original engine I just wanted to get a decent engine on it.  i got a good price on a CH270 Kohler and figured I couldn't go wrong with Kohler.  Any way I found I needed an adapter plate and got one and now the engine is in place.  I don't show it but the hood just drops on.  Hooray.  The shaft size was wrong but I picked up a nice adapter on Ebay.  Putting on the belt that was used with K241 did work but you can see in the photo how loose it is.  I'm assuming a somewhat shorter belt would be what I want.  Do you think I should try one or two inches shorter or????????  Oh and yes someone has altered the guard so a new one is on my wish list.  Thr throttle cable is not working very well so that is my highest priority.  I want to get the plow on and maybe scare away the white stuff.
