Clevis,

   This is the harness I am being told by Kohler to use: PN# 5475502S

Who knows......I'm lost now. GL Following.........

Bernie

I saw a picture of that harness PN5475502S - that doesn't look like the one I need.  Could you post a pic of the wires coming off of your Kohler?

Clevis,

  Yep, looked at a bunch of harnesses they said I need.......Nothing seems to be right except the ones we already have, 6617618S.

Here are pics of my engine side and key switch side. Engine side hooked up as per pic in Steevo's pic you sent.

Clevis,

  Found a pic of Steevo's key switch side. Looks like he has a wire harness on the key switch then to another wire harness....Hmmmm

Thats going to be a very nice working tractor for the green paint take something the correct color to a automotive paint supply house and have it color matched to a single stage paint then loaded into a couple rattle cans should only cost about $20.00 a can will be a perfect match and any unused paint can sit on a shelf until you need to do more touchup

I went to Serwin Williams and got an match for the green paint.  if anyone needs the information I can post the info of the label.  It was about $25 for a quart which is a lot compared to what you get in a rattle can.  Chris

Yes thank you, would like the paint and formula for duplication if you could.

Chris,
In the pinned color thread someone posted the HT23 green from Sherwin Williams. Is the code different from what they made for you?

IT'S ALIVE!

I spent some more time on it this weekend.  After studying the wiring diagram for the newer Kohler, I realized the old Kohler K switch wasn't going to work and I needed a new one (5pt + ground).  I ordered that switch plus some new throttle/ choke cables and got them in time for the weekend.  I changed the oil, put in new plugs and air filter.  After putting in the new fuel line, I couldn't wait to fire it up.  I plugged in the wiring harness and the switch.  It turned over, but it wasn't pulling any fuel.  I took the line and tank off again and found the fuel petcock on the bottom of the tank was plugged with a rusty sludge.  I had rinsed the tank several times with fresh gas but didn't think to check the valve.  I brushed it out and ran some carb cleaner through it.  This time it started pulling fuel and within a few seconds it fired up.

After it ran - I just had to throw on the hood and fender and ride it around a bit.  This is my first Eaton 2 sp hydro.  In high, this tractor jumps into action.  I have loved my HT20, but between the softer spring seat, 2 speed hydro and better fuel economy of the newer Kohler - I may have a new go to.

I still have several things I need to do - finish the wiring (lights, ammeter and hour meter), prep and paint the dash tower and put in a new set of PTO belts (I found I have an off sized belt not pulling its weight.)  My daughter also informed me that the decals weren't cutting it - so I've got decals on order too. 

I've attached some pics and here are some videos of the new Kohler starting and my daughter and son having fun on it.

Clevis,

 

   Sounds awesome!!!! You must be grinning ear to ear. Nice job!!! :rocker2: Both tractors are great! Glad you got it running. I just ordered a new switch, and am digging for my spare starter since I think the one on the engine is toast.

Good Luck! :thumbs:
