I have a GT10 that I acquired a while back it has been waiting patiently for me to start working on it. I realize that some parts that I don't have will be hard to find , so I am finally going to try to start the project. There are a few problems I need to sort out first.
Problem 1 can someone tell me what model Kohler this is ? I can't find any numbers on the engine!

I do know it is a GT 10 I have the I'd plate from the tractor

Problem 2 I don't know the underwood layout ( gas tank, coil mounting and such)
If anyone has one of these could you please post some pix of the engine and locations of the coil ?

I do not have the hood or grill I do have very strong sheet metal for the rear

Here are some pictures of what I am starting with. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1344082757.762811.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1344082875.926036.jpg

Welcome! Kind of hard to tell much with the body parts missing. Have you got a pic of the fenders? Maybe a side view?
Were there any #'s like 09?????? or 5???? on the ID tag?

I think this would be the same as the LGT 100 Ford since it has the tube frame. Here is the repair manual link:
http://gardentractor...-repair-manual/
There is also an owners and parts manual for these in the manuals section. See if that doesn't look like yours.

That has potential to be very nice and the price can't be beat. If it's a 10hp kohler then it should be a K241. The spec no. would tell you how the engine is configured.

Wow I see my wife's computer has a problem with the letter E , I will pull the engine out of my storage tent a little later and search for bombers but I really don't remember seeing any there. And yes I saw some fun and potential when I picked it up.my first thought was tube frame garden tractor = puller !

If that manual is the correct one, then the engine is a K241AQS, spec-4674O-D. Best of luck with it.

No problem, Ken! You folks keep bringing in these 'oddball to me' Jakes and Fords and I am learning. Be sure to holler if something else is needed.

That is one of the early 70's Jacobsen s as the oil pan is welded into the frame and it has a standard shift trans, so that really makes it a 10hp :)

Kieth, take a look at the frame again. There is a big hole right where the engine mounts. No oil pan there.

Still an old style but has been modified for something else.. But still an early seventys steering linkage gives it away and so does the dash/ steering column :)

I forgot to ask the wife where to find my I'd plate I'll look later I know the numbers were still there. I found a look up site that told the year from the numbers once but my computer crashed . Anyone happen to know of the site ? If I remember correctly I believe it was a 74 .
