Kohler K301

Recommended Posts

Started reassembling my 12 hp Kohler. Realized I had not noted where rod oiling hole is supposed to face. I had taken pictures of everything, but do not see location of hole. My fancy CD with all the Kohler repair manuals , The K301 section does not show it either. Can someone help me?

Ashamed to admit what I did. But I did not time camshaft to crankshaft. I could turn the crankshaft 17/8 turn and then it would lock up. Took head off thought maybe I had something caught in valves. Then I pulled pan off. Finally seen the rod cap hit the camshaft. How much clearance should between the two? I imagine that I will have to disassemble motor to retime.

Ron, You will have to re-time that engine. If you are off, even one tooth, on the timing between cam and crank, the engine is not going to run properly. If I recall correctly, there is actually a flat spot on that camshaft to give the necessary clearance, if everything is timed correctly.

There is a spot on camshaft, looks like rod may have been rubbing before. That is why I was asking how much clearance. And there are several different ways to time motor, depending on new or old model with or without balance gears.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
