Kohler Engine Data

Recommended Posts

6-5-99 @ 22:20

A friend of mine recently purchased a John Deere 214
with a Kohler engine. We would like to know what the
horsepower is, what year it was manufactured, and if
the engine is a short block replacement.

There are two (2) data tags on the engine cowling. I
think I remember reading that short block Kohlers are
provided with a second data tag.

Anyway, the data from the tags is:
First tag:
Model #K321AQS
Spec. #60311d
Serial #8040704

Second tag:
Spec. #4752243
Serial #1809501451

We will appreciate any information that can be provided.

Thank you,

If you're still needing the information, I'll tell you what I think I know. First off, Polo is correct on the horsepower, which is 14. The first tag is the original engine tag, and it breaks down this way. The K341 is a Kohler 14 horse, the "A" means the engine has a different oil pan than the more commonly used, wider oil pan. (common on John Deere's) the "Q" means it's a quiet model, and the "S" indicates electric start. the seven digit serial # was used from 69'to79', your's is a 77'model. The other tag is most likely a short block tag that the engine received sometime in the past. The ten digit serial # makes the shortblock a 88' replacement. Hope this helps Tony.

      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
