I'm working on these 2 K341's, and neither have the tag with the spec # on the
blower shroud.
Kinda impossible to figure out what parts to order, without the spec #.

Is there any other way to figure out the spec # ?

If you knew what the engines were originally used for then you may be able to find out that way. There are a zillion engine types available. If you check this place they have all the Kohler info available. They may be able to help. You can access parts diagrams for different type No.s all in one spot. http://www.opeengines.com
I've bought parts from these guys and had excellent service.

No idea what they came out of.
I've been to that site, and partstree as well.
Without spec#, your throwing darts, I think.

Now I know why this guy I use to order Kohler generator parts from, insisted on the
spec #. He just wouldn't talk to you, if you didn't have the spec #.
Reminded me of the soup nazi from Seinfeld.
"What?? no spec #??" click.....bzzzzzzz

Will, do you have any pics of the engines? Are the blower housings still on them? Color might be a clue as to what they came off of, although probably not a reliable one.

You sure there K341s?
Should have 10 bolts, if 9 bolts they are smaller engines.

I don't have any pics, but will get some. Blower shrouds are off.
Is rust considered a color?

Yes, they're K341s. I measured the bore, and the pistons aren't oversized. K341 is cast into
the block at the output shaft.
One has the K341 in the block beow the PTO shaft, and upside down E/5 above the shaft.
The other one has K341 4 above the PTO shaft, and 27H7 below the shaft.
