I'll have some pics later, but I picked a Kohler Magnum 16 yesterday. Has some oddities about it. Supposedly came off a zero turn mower. Here's the #'s:

M16AQS

711562

??15304153

 

The PTO end of the crank is nearly flush with the block and looks to have a bolt broken off in the middle of it. Also, a small taper there.

Flywheel end has a stub shaft adapter on it. Looks to be 1" diameter by 1.75" maybe.

 

I'll get out and take pics later this morning. It seems to have good compression. Has a PO modded Intake & carb. Also has a very nice though big muffler.

it may have been on a generator or welding machine with the short shaft

Found the crankshaft end it has.

I wonder how many parts from a K341 will work on this? I have the engine out of my Ford LGT 165 that blew up. Depending on what I do with this will dictate what I need for the PTO end of the crank. Or possibly a different crank.

I think a crank swap and you would be on your way.  The only difference real difference is the type of ignition system.

There is a difference between the M12 and the M14/M16 crank even though they share the same stroke.  I was told this when hunting down pieces for my K301 build.

sounds like a Toro engine with the short stub. there was one (I forget what brand) that had the PTO end that was pretty much just flush with the engine case, also driven off the flywheel end.  unbelieveable how many versions of any given engine there are.

Was going to start it this afternoon. I noticed the nut under the cable I was putting on was a bit loose, so I tightened it a little. Unbeknownst to me, the plastic inside was broken making a direct short. I pulled the starter and opened it for a look. Found the stud was against the housing and some broken pieces. Everything else looked new in there, including the brushes. Got out the trusty E-6000 glue and stuck what plastic parts I could find back together. Have to let it sit over night, glue can take 72 hours to reach full strength. So it will be a while before I can start it. This starter is different than the K341.

Could be, Doug! I know it's not correct but he said it would run with it. I want to hear it again and check the stator for charging.

The glue in the starter parts has had time to cure. Messed with it some and got it to fire. Acts like that carb is flooding it. Gonna need to find a correct one for it. But I know it will run now with the right parts.

Got to looking through my parts and I have a Walbro 45 053 79 carb missing the choke shaft. May see how it works after I clean it. Also have a Kohler #30, but it needs a kit and a bowl.

Those M series have to be about the best thing Kohler made except for the Walbro carb. I'd go with the #30.
