Nice find Doug, glad you have another in the stable.

 

I thought you were going to tell us you had a bad engine and were going to make it an ET16 :D

 

This was suppose to become  ET3

Good score Doug, and great news on the exhaust valve.

I really don't think it should be just rammed out into a snowbank, and a tarp

thrown over it. I've got room in the one shed up here. :smilewink:

Heck, I might even wrench it a bit.

Doug, I'm glad to hear it was a stuck valve that is remedied all ready.  I hope the rest of it is that easy.  It looks fairly good from your photographs.

Today was a nice warm day, I tried to get this one running and was unsuccessful. Multiple problems.

I changed the oil and found no water in it, got lucky here because the dipstick does not look good.

I checked for spark, it has none, found the the Ammeter is burned out, open circuit, no power to the key, or anywhere, so I jumped it and got power to the key switch, the ignition coil, starter solenoid, and electric clutch, but still no spark. Most likely points problem.???

 

Then I checked the carb, removed the bowel and found a mess of  crap in there, almost the whole bowel full of it. So the fuel pump probably the same way.

 

I then checked the starter as it will not crank over with the spark plug in place, I jumped it right from the battery and measured the voltage at the starter term and it has more than 11volts but will not turn the engine over with the plug in. Checked the ground also and it's good.

Noticed that even with the plug out it turns slow compared to the other Kohler K series I have. I think it's weak.

I don't think this has run in years.

 

I have a running 14hp Kohler that came off of a MF14 parts tractor so I'll be switching around some parts and see if I can get the 16 to run.

Parts to switch

Starter, 1 battery cable, Ammeter, Carb, Fuel pump, plus???

Check the points and ???

Are you working on this outside?

If so, you've got one more warm day left. maybe .

 

 

Do you have a good starter?

 

If not, let me know.

Wife is headed your way tomorrow.

I figure I got one more warm day and it's my day off so I'll see if I can get it to run.

Thanks for the starter I got one from the 14 parts tractor, and all the other stuff I need also, parts tractors come in handy.

Yes the motors turns.

Today I had visitors come over so nothing got done on this one today, we spent 1/2 a day talking about electric tractors.

Try it another day.

Try disconnecting the electric pto connecter at the front bottom left of the engine.Maybe the electric cluch is keeping motor from spinning over fast enough.I had this with the 14 i bought for parts.Disconnected the wire and the motor fired right up.Mine would barely crank over,i also thought my starter was bad.Just a little suggestion.

Nice looking addition DH1! I'm not asking you what you paid but what would a similar condition MF14 or 16 be worth? They never come up for sale around here so I have not idea.

Well it's a supply and demand thing but I've seen them any where from $250.  to  $2500.

 

Condition a big factor.
