Is there anyway to tell what model a kohler engine is if the ID tag is missing on the cover? Maybe flywheel size , piston size, any ideas? Can get a pic if needed.

It's cast into the PTO end of the block right next to the crank (K series). You can also go to the kohler site and get the specs.

What make and model of tractor is this engine on? Or is this an engine that you just have on hand?
Otherwise you will just have to measure the bore and check that against a spec. sheet.
Good luck.

This engine I bought today kinda quickly and I have now figured out that it has no compression. Can hear the piston going up and down just no compression. I was hoping it would work out in my C-111 W.H. Really don't want to have to work on it though, just use it.

That's too bad. Maybe just a stuck valve.
Good luck.

I think it is a 14hp after pulling the head and finding a 3.5 in piston. May be worth saving. Piston is tight. Would like to put it to elec. start. So if anyone has a flywheel with ring gear and starter , backing plate, starter I may need it.

I have a parts engine (K321A - spec number is unreadable) that someone from the forum was going to purchase a pile of stuff from. You can see what I still have boxed up in the pictures. I also still have the short block with the bearing plate still attached and some misc parts. I want to keep the starter as a back-up for my Kohlers though and the carb has already been donated to a needed Kohler. If you are interested make me an offer. The shipping is the killer as the flywheel is pretty heavy.
