Yesterday I removed a Kohler Command 20hp engine from a Cub Cadet 2000 series tractor. I am planning to repower my HT20 with this motor, as the K532 in it needs rebuilt. However, I have a few questions from those who have done a similar swap..
Which stub shafts do I need to order from Kohler?
This motor currently has an electric PTO on the backside (front of the cub cadet) and a driveshaft off the front (which is actually the backside on the cub cadet). It was a weird driveshaft setup, as it basically just inserted into the motor and had little rubber cylinder looking things that went around the sprocket looking end of the driveshaft (I will probably have to post pictures for this to make sense). I know i'll need stub shafts for the front and rear since I want to use this tractor to mow and run implements. Does anyone have the part numbers for those? Can the electric PTO be utilized? (if not... I wonder what I could use it for)
I can fabricate a bracket for this motor.. but I was curious...does anyone have a cad drawing or sketch of one with the necessary measurements?
Lastly, exhaust? Any suggestions on that? I don't plan on modifying my factory muffler to work. Does Anyone have a suggestion or pictures of a repowered HT and their exhaust setup?
Any parts suggestions or input is greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to finally get this ball rolling. The last year has been a struggle between job loses, deaths, and everything else that could be thrown at us. I basically had to mothball everything I was working on, or needed to work on the last year due to everything. Hopefully, I can get this project moving and greet 2017 with some open arms lol.
