Partstree.com is a good place to get a visual of the kohler.
Also, download the Kohler service manual here. You'll find that handy, for
working on the carb.
And of course, don't forget to ask here, if you have questions.
Oh yeah, Welcome to GTT.

I just found some parts from tulsaenginewarehouse.com for a k361 18 hp kohler. What remains to be seen is the quality, for it is a after market gasket kit I have ordered.
Another possibility for you is Brian Miller gardentractorpullingtips.com.

I said it once and I'll say it again...No such thing as a stupid question...We won't learn if we don't ask...
I see you said your a independent OTR driver..well your setting in the golden seat. I know "time" is money while driving but stay on the lookout for the scrap / junk yards and old tractor graveyards along your journeys. Make a stop if you can and take a look.
Around here the scrap yards will let you look as long as you stay out of the way of equipment and don't climb the piles. Plus if you find something you will have to remove the part yourself but they will usually only charge salvage price, like a buck or two depending on what you get.
Just a thought.....Good Luck with your projects

No matter where you decide to get the rebuild kit for that carburetor, all you need to do is enter this number at any site 25-757-013S, they range in price from around $10-$14 depending where you get it.
You will see this kit is for many size carter carbs (another reason I like old Carters!)
And it does sound like someone replaced the carb on your K181.
One more thing, I totally agree that it can be confusing when these sites throw a ton of numbers at you!

It took a lot of searching and head spinning lol. And I am still learning! Also a lot of what I have learned came from members of this awesome site!
The other carb, does it also have two mixture screws? And if it was on the K181 it would have a smaller bore. If you have a way to take and post pictures that would help us identify it for you.
