Im looking over a Ariens S18 H that has a K341 kohler in it. Im guessing its not original since its a 16hp..Its a nice tractor with front& rear PTO's and aftermarket 3-point that hasn't been installed yet..My main question is what was the original engine? and how rare is this tractor with these extras? thanks

Not that many brands used the K361. I think most went to twin cylinders at that HP level. Check that tag again and see if it's a 361. 

I guess the advantage was that they could go all the way from 12 to 18hp with the same engine dimensions.

I haven't seen too many of the S-18 around. Going by what is around yet, this wasn't as popular as the 14 or 16.

Here's some info from a S18 H that one  of our Site Sponsors had for sale a while ago.
