the starter is gone on the engine so I cannot tell which way it turns, and what is the diameter of the shaft?

I believe you are correct. The flywheel should turn counterclockwise.

Crankshaft clockwise, flywheel CCW.  So it depends what you mean by "shaft".

here you'll find the PM TP-2137-A of the KOHLER K181 - w/out the diameter - and here a Service Manual, maybe it will help you.

Fly wheels turn clock wise.
