I have a T758es that had the incorrect motor on it when I purchased it.  I picked up a Kohler K181 that appears to have come out of a Wheel Horse.  Is this the correct motor for this tractor?  There were a few variations of the K181 and I want to make sure that I have the correct one.  Are there any parts of the motor that are unique to a Panzer other than the front drive pulleys?  Any help and / or pictures of correct T758es' would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks in advance,

Andy

Welcome to gttalk! That looks like the right motor to me.

I have to agree with Brady. From what I can see, it looks like you've got the right set-up. You're going to need the right motor mount plate if it isn't on the tractor already. You said it was going into a 785, which would have the right plate for the Kohler unless somebody modified it for the other motor. You should get more than enough help with photos on this site. Also - check out the Gallery for the Panzer photos. There might be some there that will help too. You can also check out Panzer Tractor Group on facebook.
