Will the John Deere 216 16 hp kohler engine direct fit on Ford LGT 165 on the oil pan amount?

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Is that a 341AQS engine? Wide base or narrow? You might want to check this thread.

Welcome to GTT. I have an LGT125 open side. I am rebuilding the engine and it is different from one out of a Cub. The block to base bolt pattern is different. Pics will make your questions more exact. Check out our Manuals Section for info when you need it. Good Luck, Rick

The 200 series Deere engines are different than most small pan Kohlers. Most small pan Kohlers don't have the "ears" cast into the block that the big pans use to mount,in other words most small pan Kohlers won't take a big pan.This is not the case with the 200 series Deere engines. They DO have the "ears cast into the block. The 200 series Deere tractors use those "ears" to mount the engine to the tractor. So if you are needing the type of block that will take a small or bigger "deep" pan you have picked the right engine.

So the bolts come up through the bottom? That has the balance gears, best make sure the bearings are very good in them. Or take them out! They will make a hole in the block if they come apart!

Would the k341 crankshaft fit all kohler K341S, K341AQS and K341AS?

Yes. The Letter Designation at the end distinguishes certain characteristics such as: K341S is electric start, AQS is having a special oil pan, quiet model, and Electric Start, and AS is oil pain and electric start. 

 

The crankshaft is all the same though. Always double check with a micrometer though!

If you are planning to put it in the block above, be sure to get the balance gears timed along with the cam! I think the difference in cranks was more into the output (PTO) end of the shaft.
