I thought they were very similar in size,that is if you compare say two 12hp's,or two 14hp's and so on.But I've not actually done any measuring.
I didn't even realize or think about the size differences, that Kohler is probably at least a 14hp isn't it?

Tecumseh is 7 5/8" x 4". Is a Kohler 7 3/4" x 5", that's the size of the other bolt pattern.
The pic is a 1966 MF10 frame where the motor mounts, 2 different bolt patterns 1 is Tecumseh, the other???
These holes appear to be factory made and I've seen the same bolt pattern in pic on other 66 frames.

but yeah i was really suprised how much bigger this motor is. i was thinking 12hp would be 12hp right? LOL so much for that.
ive always wanted a diesel anyways. cant afford a GREEN 430..... or the blower for it... heck prolly not even a deck LOL.
but i got this 12 hydro 69 from the original owner off of michigan craigslist. came with a early style blower, blade, OK deck, sleeve hitch, massey two piece wheel weights, sears weights. hood face is all messed up though for 250. i thought the motor had low compression, 60psi or so. but then i take it apart and there is a weight on the flywheel. stinker. i guess they added that between the 67 mf10. had a good ssi. carb was mint so was the tank, lady said it was sitting for 20 years. hope the trans is good. thatd be a bummer.
