After a year and half I'm finally getting back to work on my Toro GMT 200. I purchased this in May of 2019 in North central Washington State. Here is the link for when I first purchased it. https://gardentracto...hl=toro gmt 200
Here is what she looked like when I started today.
I purchase a used Kohler k532 at a tractor show about 1 years ago. It ran good when I purchased it but I think I will pull the heads and see what everything looks like before I put it into the tractor.
I pulled the old engine to see what difference there are between the two engines. It looks like I can switch over the oil filter adapter, engine coupler, and the pulley for the hydraulic steering pump driving at the back of the motor. I'm no sure about the exhaust yet. Do I keep the original type setup or go with something different.
Comparing the new and old engine.
Engine to hydro coupler
The crank is the same diameter but the new engine is 4.25 in. long while the old was only 2.75 in. Don't know if that will be a problem or if I will have to cut the extra length off. Don't think cutting the extra off will have any effect on how the engine will run.
