I have been tossing aroung the idea of repowering my GT19 (Kohler Mag19) and have a shot at getting a rebuildable 25hp Kohler Command. 

 

Was curious if someone has made a similar swap and what needed done, would like to keep downtime to a minimum and know how in depth I would have to cobble things together.

did a repower with a GT16 used a command 23HP EFI works awesome

PTO shaft is correct height able to use the electric clutch of the original engine pump shaft bolted on the flywheel side

 

had to drill new engine mount holes couple of brass fitting got the oil drain out the OEM hole even

 

Video of it running with new engine video

We would prefer that the pictures are posted on the forum. That way they are here for reference and not lost when the website changes.

I tried that once my Web site has been online since year 2000 it has outlasted a few Forums in that time period

I have lost a large amount of data and tech tips that I posted on forums because the forums went away so now our policy is to keep tech tips, how to's and pictures on our web site. if this is a issue please let me know and I will not link back to my site for my data and pictures and will refrain from posting

 

thanks

Where in the world did you find the small diameter exhaust pipe?? On the couple of repowers I have done, I have had to cobble junk together between the exhaust flange and the muffler, and mine look like crap, yours look great.

I bought the exhaust that was intended for a grasshopper mower and cut it apart and modified it to fit the ariens
