Do the headbolts on a Kohler K181s have a torque specification or does the "hand tight an' then some" rule apply? :D

Definitely has a torque spec. Don't know off the top of my head, but has a spec. Check the manuals section. Probably find it in there.. Umm it's new years Eve and you're toruqeing a head?? Ha-ha

The manual in the manuals section of this sight says 15-20 ftlbs. I do not know how to post an internal link but if you go to the top of this page and click in the manuals button/ second from the left you should be able to navigate to the manual. you will have to download it.     Don

Nearest manual I have handy says 200ft/lb.

not FT/lb but IN/Lb.    You will not get to 200 FT/lb, the threads in the block will strip or the bolts will snap off way before you get there.

Bigger K engines are not that hard, think 35lbs but in two increments as you go. AND, a certain pattern is to be followed.  SO, think smaller ones could be less it seems. A manual for that engine should have both pattern and amount in the pages of how to remove/install head.
