Won a manual of epay for Kohler Commands and Magnums. Parts books and even a section of parts specials for all the brands of mowers some were used in. Has section on the CH20 I'm doing and even shows the Snapper and Power KIng uses and many others. Think some are zero turns. Just has numbers on those pages, no pictures. Have from small 5 hp way up to bigger twins. Even has same engines in vertical crank sections. Lots of info, now to just know how to look it up and make it useful! Need some lessons on it's use. Kinda hard to open with that big binder. Not sure if it comes apart, but looks like it and can add or remove sections then? Took pix to show this big thing. Know what they say.....you can have all the devices, but doesn't mean you know How to Use them!  Found a release in binder now, pull it and the backing and front cover will tilt back and leave the inner pages in stack. I didn't lift off the metal there with fear of loosing the whole pile, so just locked back up again. Neat!

Wow that's a Huge manual lol.It should of have Kohler Bible printed on the front of it.That would be really handy for a kohler Tech.Does it cover all the special and obsolete cranks?

 

Finding numbers for some cranks can be almost impossible without one of those huge books.

I have an older Briggs and Stratton version sitting next to me on the table, these books are a big help when ordering parts, a Kohler book is on my wish list.

Barely looked at it. Possession is the top priority here, not it's use. W on look at it till I get into an engine at later time.
