Kohler Courage

Recommended Posts

This morning my wife and I were replacing the starter on my car, when my neighbor drove my with his Craftsman ZTR mower. About the time my wife commented is did not sound good, it made a loud bang and stopped. It is leaking oil and engine ia locked up -- the mower is only about a year old. I have read that Kohler Courage motors have had problem -- does anyone know the details? David

Oops, yes, there have been many problems with the "bucket engine". Gets that name because the lower part of the engine is deeper than the upper - good thought because it puts the gasket well above the oil level, unlike most other vertical shaft engines. There have been cam problems etc. with them so far. I really think the 'bucket engine" nickname came from the fact that once you tear it down to try to fix it, you can't because it's junk, and you throw all the parts in a bucket to take them to the recycling center!

      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
