I went to change the oil in my "new to me" 1975 1614. I downloaded the owners manual and it referenced an engine manual. The owners manual did show 2 quarts for the crankcase capacity but if I fill it with 2 quarts that would be overfilled according to the dipstick. I am not even sure the dipstick is original. It is yellow and farily short. I went ahead and changed the oil adding 1.5 quarts and that brought it up to the full line on the dipstick. Is this correct? That seems right from all the other K series Kohler's I've had. Also, I am going to change all of the fluids throughout the tractor. Is there some recommended fluid types you Power King Gurus prefer? Thanks!


By the way... The picture is just for fun. We all like Pictures, right?

The photo is a modified walking tractor, converted into a riding tractor I saw at a show this year. Just something unique and fun.
