dating a Kohler

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me how you can tell what year a Kohler motor is? I can date a Briggs off the code #, but haven't a clue how to date a Kohler.

I've never dated a Kohler, though I did hug one a few times in my younger days/nights... but some were likely American Standards, instead of Kohlers. I wasn't looking for names/labels... :D:D

Kent, you could be labeled an "enginizer" with a statement like that.8D

      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!😁
