Can someone suggest a good referance book / manual for working on Kohler K301A engines, preferably helping a novice try to work through driving out the demons. You know a section that says if it does / doesn't do this, try this. If there is such an animal.

In our manuals section there is the factory service manual from Kohler. I'm in the middle of rebuilding a K301 and it seems to be a very good manual. I have an original hardcopy but I think this is the one  http://gardentractor...service-manual/  and this  http://gardentractor...ine-rebuilding/  and this  http://gardentractor...p-parts-manual/   .


You can download 3 free manuals per day. The Briggs and Stratton Repairmans Manual has alot of good tips too. Good Luck, Rick

I just looked through it. Section 4 is trouble shooting. It is a good guide but I think the B&S Troubleshooting guide is better.
