I was just toolin through my HT23 paperwork, and stumbled across the engine numbers. The engine tags are gone, so I presumed the tractor had its original engine, but now after seeing the tractor serial number, and comparing that to the engine numbers looks like the engine was replaced?

Might explain the extra exhaust gaskets that came in the binder?

Tractor is a 01, but engine looks to be a 1985? The picture of the deck shows original purchase date, not to add confusion.

What are your thoughts??

That Kohler chart can be downloaded all over the interwebs.

The party I bought the tractor from was the 2nd owner. He told me something was done, or replaced concerning the engine when I purchased it, but he couldn't clearly remember what the original owner told him. Nothing looks wrong, everything is where it should be on it.

The binder I have came with the tractor, and has some good hand written info concerning the tractor including the engine numbers. I have almost had this a year, and haven't discovered this info until now.

Mystery solved!

Seems this info I posted is wrong. The paperwork is from another tractor Ser#0101056, so enine numbers are incorrect for my engine.

Pic is my tractor data plate, and number is 01000898

Had to dig up my old posts to find that picture to verify tractor serial number as the tractor isn't here.

How are you dating the engine? 

First you talk to it's parents and make sure is ok to even ask it on a date. Once permission is obtained you approach the engine and offer a gift, perhaps flowers or candy, and ask it it wants to date. Once you get an answer you can proceed with dating the engine.

When I removed my 1886-01's K482 engine to have a broken head bolt taken out, I discovered that it was not the original engine by the color behind the shroud. Red.  So it probably came from a Wheel Horse.  Plus it was a 15 amp stator.  Funny the stuff you find when doing refresh work, huh?

Red could be primer before they painted the tractor.   You pull the gas tanks off some 1886 and the side of the tank will have a red mark.  That would be were they painted the tractor with the tank in its spot and the hood hing mount on the battery/tank tray blocked the paint.

Wilber I find that to be very interesting. Funny how they did stuff at the factory sometimes.
