Kohler 341S 16HP Rebuild

Recommended Posts

A friend and I have recently re built a 16 HP Kohler Single Cylinder Engine. The piston split in two. Following the re build, are there any immeiate precautions we should take? How soon before I can start mowing with abandon again? Thanks, Rick Carter

Rick, This what I did to my 14 horse last summer after a major rebuild. 1. Retorque head bolts. Motor is in a Cub Cadet. 2. After 4-5 hours change oil. 3. Always run good fresh gas. 4. After 1 hour run time I start doing light work with it. 5. Motor had 6-7 hours on it when I went to a plow day and plowed 2- 3 hours straight. 90-100 hours later Cub is going strong. Keep an eye on oil level and any loose bolt(s). Ist oil change oil will look like it has fine metal in it. Best thing you can do for your Kohler is use a good quality motor oil and keep it vents around motor clean. It doesn't matter what the motor is in after a rebuild I let motor get to operating temp and put the hammer down. They're going to go or blow up.:D:)^

from Joe Papa pretty much nail this one, but forgot one thing. If this is your first rebuild, Your going to get a real good feeling when it first fires.
Joe, your right- but I still get that same feeling:)every time I rebuild a motor. It's been 32 years.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
