John Deere?  

At first I thought it might be for a JD 400, which also used a K-series twin, but those tractors had two exhaust manifolds.

It occurred to me that maybe the oddball exhaust manifold I have is for one of the zero-turns that used the Kohler K-series twins.

Doug, check out this listing on eBay - looks kind of like the part you showed in this post, although a much rustier one...

According to the ad, it goes to a K582...

Thanks for the link. Too bad that the seller did not say what the manifold came from. Maybe he doesn't know, and is just parting out the engine.

Hi Jim,

The manifold i have is not from a bolens. It is only threaded no flange for bolting the muffler to. It came off an kohler generator.

 

Sorry,

Mike

Thanks to all who looked in their pile of parts for the manifold I needed!  Even all the way across the pond!  I've located one here and it will arrive next week (thanks Bob!) and then the fun begins getting the old one off! :wave:

A follow-up on the exhaust manifold - it should be here by the weekend and hopefully I'll have the old one off by then - broke one bolt off, but it broke up high and I should be able to get hold of the stub pretty easy once I "gently" remove the other three.  Dang rusted bolts! While making room in the engine compartment to work, I removed the back section of the shroud, which also acts as a firewall of sorts.  Discovered that the rectifier/regulator is fried - one lead was burned completely off, obviously the one that allows the battery to charge, as the tractor did run with it missing.  So, I'll be replacing that and I'll be moving it's attachment location away from the hot firewall as well.  Pretty poor selection of an attachment area by the Bolens folks way back when...

 

Also of interest:  while trying to identify if the rectifier was a 15 or 30 amp model (it's a 15 amp), I discovered that the flywheel (and some other items as well - the intake manifold for example) is red!  Obviously, the motor came from a Wheelhorse at some time in the tractor's life!  Ya never know what you'll find in one of these restore jobs, do ya?   :wallbanging:   I love it though, except for the $$$ part!

 

Jim

I thought I'd share a couple of pictures:  Check out the rectifier and notice that one of the AC leads is basically not even there.  Also here's a picture of the Wheelhorse red flywheel...
