I am rebuilding a Kohler K341 16 hp engine for my Ford LGT165. I have a copy of the Kohler Crankshaft reference, plus the parts manuals for all of the Kohler K series engine.

I see that the crankshaft in my engine is the same part number as some used in the 14 hp K321 engines--45 142 21.

Will these two crankshafts interchange? I have a chance to purchase a K321 crank in good condition for about the same cost as it would take to grind my K341 crank.

Thanks,

Steve

Form what I understand, you can use either crank in either motor, they are the same crank.

If you read thru this thread, the crankshafts were discussed at length.
