Any Kohler K series is worth saving!

Someone go get it!

I think its an LGT120 because it looks to be gear drive and is manual lift. If I make progress on the van, I may call. I could sure use a bunch of parts from that for my LGT120, LGT125, and LGT145. I'd rather see someone here get it than lose it. Good Luck, Rick

Jacobsen did that at that time. It probably saved money in the production line. They are a particular model of the Kohler engines. Most Kohlers will not fit. Good Luck, Rick

Definitely a gear drive. Those are getting harder to find

Welded because the engine plate with rubber mounts was gone, and no other mounts for rigid mounting?? OR, is that plate after this models year?  Some people will Kobble anything just to make it work, right or wrong.

They came from the factory that way.... the pan also serves as the cross member for the front suspension

This was a class act!! And made for a very stout frame to engine combo. The oilpan/ front axle pivot is also very robust. As you can see the engine unbolts very easily, also this allowed for more oil in the pan too. I think is was the best design at the time. Not so good for allowinga retro engine swap though.

the pan looks like typical cast iron material like any other K series single.  What material is the frame?  How would they be able to weld cast iron to mild steel? (dissimilar metals)

I called the guy on Thursday and he still had it. Another guy had first dibs but kept pushing back when he would come. I told him to call me if it didn't sell. He called last night and I picked it up today. It is in sadder sheet metal condition than I had hoped. The engine turns and doesn' seem to have any obvious bad problems. He also had a cart that I bought.

 

Its funny, I thought that that Jake would sell the same day it was posted. I didn't think I would get it. Hopefully it will provide the parts to fix my Ford LGT 120. Good Luck, Rick
