If there's no tag or decal on the engine, or if the flywheel shroud has been replaced with one from another engine, then there's no way of knowing the exact replacement parts or the year of the engine. All you'll know is the model, specification and year of the flywheel shroud itself. Therefore, the best way to find the size and model of Kohler engine is to remove the cylinder head and measure the bore and stroke.
Otherwise, they are like the small and big block Chevy V8's, there is no way of knowing for sure simply by looking at it on the outside. Therefore, I don't recommend doing this. Kohler changed the "0", "1" or "2" at the end of the model number to indicate that it's a one or two cylinder engine. The three numbers and letter following the first two numbers not shown below are the specific variation of the engine to meet OEM specifications. No information is available from Kohler to what these numbers represent.
Engine model codes with a 4th digit of 5 or greater denote Magnum engines. The K engine followed in No serial numbers are available these early model engines. InKohler expanded into the recreational vehicle market by beginning to produce 2-cylinder snowmobile engines.

Also, when boring or honing for piston clearance, it's important to check the ring end gaps and gap them according to Kohler's specs.

The choke levers were designed for various linkages and equipment applications in mind. Below is an explanation of the various choke levers to help you decide which carburetor to need for your Kohler K Engine. This choke lever is found on Kohler K Series Engines that either mounted on equipment where you manually open and close the choke with your hand or through a linkage such as dash mounted controls on a tractor.
When mounted onto riding equipment such as tractors there are 2 linkage setups that were used. The first was the choke cable was routed so it connected directly to the choke lever from above the carburetor. When you pulled the choke cable the choke lever will be pulled up to close and then when the choke cable was pushed in, the cable pushed the choke lever downward.
This was a common setup on John Deere Garden Tractors. The second linkage syle was with an "L" shaped bracket mounted on the blower housing.
When mounted onto tractor the "L" shaped bracket pushes the choke choke closed as you pull the choke cable and pulls the choke down as you push the choke cable inward.
If this choke is used on a tractor with the "L" shaped bracket you may have to make an additional bend in the wire that connect to the choke so it clears the tab on the choke lever. You can also just cut the tab off with a dremel tool if you don't intend to ever manually operate the choke. This choke lever is also found on engines with an "L" shaped bracket. This choke was on carburetors mounted on equipment where you could not manually operate the choke such as Tractors and Ride on equipment.
It differs because it rotates outward from the carburetor instead of inward. On these engines, the choke cable connected directly to this lever. When connected in this fashion when you pushed in the choke cable it would push the choke lever upward to open and when you pulled the cable it pulled the choke lever downward to close. Those are the 3 most common choke lever configurations found on Kohler K Series Carburetors.
We offer all three styles to fit your engine and configuration. Kohler Carburetors Home Carburetors Kohler Carburetors Kohler Carburetors Instantly restore engine power by replacing your old carburetor with our afermarket kohler carburetor.

Unsportsmanshiplike Conduct - There's a cheater in every sport, and competition tractor pulling is no different. Honest pullers who ignore the cheater s are fools. And when there's prize money involved, a fool and their money are soon parted. Anyway, to make competition pulling a fun and fair sport for the entire family, be protective of your equipment!
While at the pulls, keep an eye on your carburetor and fuel shut-off valve! This is one of the easiest, dishonest and sneaky ways to retard or disable and sabotage a competitor's tractor. All a cheater needs is an opportunity in an attempt to gain an advantage on the track.
This is also the fastest way for a pulling association or club to gain a bad reputation and lose honest pullers. Bad news travels fast.Fit perfectly with a small modification on throttle linkage. Fair price and excellent results.

Due to the miniaturization of transistorized circuits of high current capability, a complete electronic ignition system can now be made to fit in an enclosure no bigger than a conventional ignition capacitor! The Trandenser II replaces the condenser, installing into the original condenser clamp.
Breaker point current is reduced from 2 amps down to milliamps allowing points to last virtually the life of the engine. The rapid switching capability of IGBT technology allows for greater energy delivered to the spark plug.
The result is a system offering improved all-weather starting, vastly extended breaker point life, improved running quality throughout the engine operational range, and is packaged such that installation is a breeze! An integral LED static timing light provides a simple way of setting ignition timing precisely.
