Good morning : I have a 7119 that is in need of a engine replasment. It is a kohler 19.5 hp, blowes oil and has low compression (60 lb) in one cylinder. Whant to up grade to a 20,25 hp.Question is can the frame take the extra hp's? Would like some feed back Thanks.

Karl you wont have a problem putting in a higher hp engine in your machine as far as the machine being abel to handle the hp. What you need to worry about is wether or not the engine you have or want to buy will fit. Here is a link to a fellow club member's web-page. He is a great guy, his name is al eden, and he is in the business of putting together kits to repower these tractors. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/portal_External.asp?LinkID=36&CatTitle= good luck john

I wouldn't be too concerned with the power of the engine being installed in the tractor, as long as it's within reason. The frame will handle it without a problem. Any problem would come from what you want to get OUT of the tractor. If you mow grass that is 6" tall at 2mph, it's going to take the same amount of power regardless of how much engine power you have. A higher horsepower engine is just not going to work as hard to keep up. BUT, if you normally pull one moldboard plow in your garden, and plan on adding weights and pulling two plows to take advantage of the additional power, THEN you may have problems with the driveline (belts, axle tube, differential, BGB). Simply stated, under normal circumstances, with standard attachments, belts will slip and wheels will spin before you do any damage to the tractor. Pat
