All,
Ive been looking at small single cylinder diesel engines as a possible replacement for the K241. If I stick to the same HP rating do you think the Hydro would be ok??


You would as already said be fine with a much larger engine, diesel or gas. That hydro is capable of handling much more HP than it has now. Basically it's the same hydro as in my JD F935 with 22hp diesel Yanmar.

Thank you Ryan. The flat black is really standing out. Flat black, flat white, and glossy yellow. Weird combo but it looks hot (for a garden tractor). :smile1: Oh yeah and a bit of green.:D

All dressed up and no where to go! LOL Looking good. Time to put it to work now!
P.S. Don't feel bad when you put the first scratch on it, these old timers were meant to work.

Thank You Saltydawg. I cant wait to scratch it and push some snow but.........


Alright all you tractor gurus out there I need a bit of help. Got her all back together (looks very nice btw.) and the damn thing wont run. It wont even offer to run. Best I can come up with is when I changed the points and push rod that I screwed up the timing. I think its trying to fire with the valve still open cuz its burping back through the carb. Any suggestions?? Oh yeah, it has Spark and is getting fuel. :wallbanging:

I guess I didnt. I just assumed that since it was running fine before I changed the points if I put them back the same way I wouldnt have to. Guess I was wrong. Ive never timed an engine before. I read up on timing the motor last night and I think ill do it with my multimeter set on resistance. If I read correctly just connect the probes to the points and the second theres any change in resistance that means the points are open and sp or s should be showing in the timing window. This makes it 20 degrees before tdc correct? TDC being where the piston is at its highest part of the stroke? Im having a little trouble finding the timing window. Its kinda by the starter generator on the main engine shroud right?

On the right side of the tractor their should be a small round hole, look inside that hole you should see a mark you may have 2 marks, my 12 hp does, I don't remember which mark to use, but line up the coprrect mark with the line on the outside. On my 14 hp kohler it lookls like this.

Make sure the switch is off, and aqdjust the points so the meter shows 0 ohms when they open.

You should be ok then.

Reading this made me look for a file I have that wasn't in our manuals. I just uploaded it here: K-Series Static Timing - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums
Hope it helps.

They can be a real bear if the points aren't just right on them. When I first got my 107 from my buddy it started ok but it always labored REAL hard for the first 10-15 minutes of using it and it lacked power. When it would warm up it ran fine. It had been recently rebuilt and I chased it down thru the carb and fuel issues until someone pointed me in the direction of checking that the points were set right. They were WAYYYY off! After setting them right its like a whole different machine.
