Thanks, I thought that was the number but it looks different in the diagram compared to the actual part in the manual I have

 

Even If I heavily discounted it , best I could do is about $480

That price is absurd!   I know it's not your fault Brian, as some want near $550.

This goes back to what I said a few months ago,us guys as suppliers get a bad rap for some of the pricing we have,we can't control what the manufactor charges for the new parts,exactly why more and more of these old tractors are getting scrapped,that's why I grab up what ever parts tractors I can get before they wind up being crushed,at least having and selling used parts also helps keep these tractors running and around

The bolt is just not there.  The threads are pretty rough though.  Oh, the muffler is NOT very good.  Works okay, but the screen is rusted out and mostly missing.

Rick, I appreciate you checking for a good used manifold.  And I have been soaking the existing bolts with PB.  Tractor is up on blocks right now (for a bit) while I do some other need maintenance, so it can soak in real good.

The part number you reference is for the Bolens listing under Kohler( why I first posted NLA), upon further research the number I listed and Brian looked up is for the basic manifold still available and was told by the only difference is no threaded hub out the top, but has the same side exit as the Bolens listed one, and will work ,you know this to be different? Bad info?

 With talking to my Kohler rep the side was closed and the pipe plug was were the muffler would go on most setups or unless it was a special setup. from what I do see there was at least 4 different ones and from my kohler dis they are all NLA. The only ones I have ever seen open on the side was for the Bolens. All the other ones I have seen they exhaust out the top and closed on the side. Now this is just the info I am aware of.

I have an odd NOS Kohler exhaust manifold for the K-series twins. As you can see from the pic, if it was installed on a Bolens LF, it would exhaust to the rear towards the dash tower, or right through the hood if you tried to use the threaded outlet. I have no idea what it was originally intended for.

I'm sure some guys would want them!

Generally when a part is ready to become obsolete Kohler likes to add $75-$200 to the list price and I guess they figure they mine as well try and strike it rich with the handful they have in the warehouse at the time.

If I had a NOS one in my hands I could take it to a caster and get them made. I would then take them back to were I work and have the machining done.

If it becomes a serious endeavor I will get a NOS one into your hands!

I'll take a used one into the boss and see what he thinks if it worth it I'll get back to you.
