Hi there, I am new here and someone from the forum referred you to me. I am looking for a k341 16Hp Tecumseh and or an 16Hp "M" series Kohler ( i would perfer the Kohler) quality replacement engine. it doesn't have to look pretty , just strong enough to get the job done.
I am looking to put this on a 1 0375 Horse

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.
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.
