The A stands for special oil pan, I can't remember what oil pan that is? Noel

Q stands for quite model.
S stands for electric start.

They outta be sometimes!   :wallbanging:

 

The special pan so you can fit the frame to the engine..  (Motor Mounts and pan shape & sizing)

The spec no. would give you specific info on the oil pan type. If you look up the parts diagram for the spec no. it may include more info in the parts descriptions. I'm not sure the spec no's are decoded anywhere.

I haven't pulled one of these out yet but on both my LGTs it looks like the pan is welded to the frame, or at least a flange perhaps where the pan bolts up under the frame and motor is on top, and both engines are 'AS'

If it's "AQS:", then it won't be a pan welded to frame.  The "Q stands for "quietline", which use rubber engine mounts.  In your case it is likely this style of pan.

The engine oil pan for the Fords is just a squarish pan, it has no bumps or funky odd shaped protrusions and also has no mounting flanges. It would have threaded holes in the bottom to mount it to a plate.

Some Fords do have a protrusion, but not as large & funky as the pic I posted above.  This one below is from an LGT165/Jacobsen GT16-H.

https://www.dropbox....P-983-B (1).pdf

way down on page 51 theres exploded views of some differant options for a K341.

Im pretty sure the two lgt I have at home are welded into the frame, one is a 10hp, the other was originally a 16hp but now it has a 14hp, all the tags are 'AS'. Im going to pick up another lgt today that should have a 12hp so I'll take a closer look and see if its the same setup.

Maybe the 'A' doesnt indicate a specific pan, only that each application is specific.

I believe all open sided LGT had the oil pan welded to the frame.
All closed side had rubber mounts.
But, I'm pretty sure you could change the engine. Just not the oil pan.

So back to the original question... I would assume the 'A' doesnt seem to indicate any specific oil pan but instead indicates that the engine was going to be used in an application where a special oil pan was going to be needed.

Thanks for the information. It's out of my LGT 165  (closed sides) that I am doing the engine in. I want to order parts for it. But I am not sure that the flywheel shroud is the right one for the engine. Any one have a LGT165 with closed sides could give me the model number from their engine. just to see if they are the same.

I'd agree with that statement.
