I'm a new member,would like to know if there are any other kohler engine sizes that I can install in my 1970 jd140h3 and if it's feasible to swap an m16skohler spec# 711521 for my k321 AS spec# 60136A ?
Need to rebuild my K321as but have a chance to buy a rebuilt M16S. Kevin

Any of the larger K series will work - K241, k301, k341 but be prepared to check the specs on the crank shaft, the base of the block, and other things.  If you are dealing with complete engines then it will be easier.  You will need to use the original oil pan which is a solid mount which is different than some of the later Deere machines (300/312/314/316K).

 

The 16HP seems to be a popular swap but I believe the exhaust requires some work.

Another point to consider - The '68 140s used the k301 12HP engines.  The '70 & '71 120 also uses the k301 12 HP.

Ok Travis thanks, is there a diagram of both engines with driveshaft specs or should I just measure them?

The specs you need to be concerned about are the crank shaft diameter.  The spec number on the engine or the application in which the engine was used will let you know what the crank shaft size is.  I am fairly confident to say that an engine from another Deere would be the easiest/most direct swap.  What is the story on your m16?  I don't know Kohler spec info like others do.

I'm lurking here as I was wondering about an M18 in the JD140.

I really like this website can't believe it took me this long to join. I hope to add some pics,my wife needs to teach me how,not very savvy when it comes to tech that doesn't involve dirt.
Thanks for comments and suggestions I'm going to Maine this weekend to look at possible donor engine.
