I'm looking at a CV730, is that correct?

It's a CV742S! Or a CV740, I think.

 

Kohler won't sell the magnets separate! Figures. They use cheap glue to put them together, but won't stand behind them!

The cv740 is a 27hp. The 730 is a 25 horse.  http://www.ebay.com/...gQAAOSwvjdZPazr

 

 

 

 

Are any of these flywheels interchangeable?

Well, the model # on the engine tag is CV742S and the decal on the engine air cleaner says 25 HP. What can I say?

Well, I think I scored parts for this. Found a Poulan Pro Hydro on CL with a Kohler Command 25 HP. Supposed to run, that I'll find out. Anyways, the stator is the same and the flywheel is 1 # off. I will pull the flywheel first thing and check the magnets. :smilewink:  Then I'll see if it runs. Shows 486 hours on the clock. Once this engine runs (or not), I'll swap the flywheel and stator to the Sears and see how it does. I figured I couldn't go too far wrong at $100 as all the tires hold air. :rocker2:  Plus a 54" deck would be good. Has greasable spindles! The hood is bent as they brought the tractor to this guy in a front loader bucket.

Those old AYP light/medium garden tractors are not bad, I've owned a few and they are tough as heck! I put a Johnny bucket and sleeve hitch and a bunch of wheel weight on a GT5000 and used it like a bulldozer for over a year, dug a top soil pit and pushed and cleared a sapling line 30' back with it. The steering is weak on them but the rest is pretty damn good.

I got the flywheel off this morning! :dancingbanana: :rocker2: :worshippy1: All is good! Magnets are filthy, but stuck on good yet.

I saw the casting # and it is the same other than the Sears has a 'D' and this one has an 'F'.

Stator looks good also.

This may be a better engine as it has about 200 hrs less showing. About the only difference I see so far is the oil cooler on the Sears. May be other slight differences. Maybe some internal too.

Hey, that 54" deck is what my Husqvarna needs. Was told the Poulan and Sears are same decks, made same place. SO, you have to box that up and send to me! Can pay $20 a week till paid for, give me a price! :smilewink:

I did use the 'official' GTTalk  feeler gauge to reset the ignition modules.

It starts, but promptly dies. Not sure if the solenoid is working at the carb. I can't feel it clicking when I turn the key on. To get it out is major surgery on this thing.

Is the ignition run circuit wired correctly?

Yes it is! I found the issue this morning. The solenoid was stuck in the closed position. I took it off while let the neighbors generator run. The plunger stayed in the carb. I pulled the bowl retainer and it came with it. Has a jet on the top. Took it out and used a broken off 1/8" bit to drive the plunger out. Coated in the black scum from Ethanol gas. Cleaned everything good, verified the solenoid would work and put it back together. Pulled the choke and hit the key! Started right up and idled great. Ran the RPMs up and all is good! I'm batting a 1000 this morning!

 

Here's pics of the solenoid.

Well, the Poulan is charging and will move FWD/REV. Haven't got the PTO to work as yet. Came in to look at wiring.

Looks like the PTO has a bearing issue. Won't spin at all with the belt off! Act's like the switch is on with everything off. Time to pull the deck and get the flywheel/stator off for the Sears! One of the two will be my base mower!
