Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Kohler Engine Model (AC 916)

Recommended Posts


HELP!!!! I just moved from small town Ohio to a beautiful 1-acre spread in the country. Negotiated the AC 916 tractor to stay with the home. Replaced both the drive & deck belts. But the Carburetor is missing the air filter & it's housing. And the throttle valve screws dropped out (probably sucked into the engine) leaving the valve plate lying inside the carb. Anyway...I took a photo of the model/serial numbers from the Kohler engine and went to TSC to try and get these parts. They asked for the model # so I pulled out the photo from my phone and realized the model # is missing (see photos). They couldn't help me without it. Can anyone lend me some advice? Not sure what to do at this juncture, and I don't want to mow an acre with my Yard-Man walk-behind, even if it is self-propelled. Not that I would mind the excercise but I have so much to do to organize this new house. HELP!!!

Better pull the head on that engine if you suspect anything was sucked in (besides gas). The last thing you need is for it to fire up with a screw in there. Oh, welcome to the club!

Thank you all for you're input. As soon as I finish moving in I will jump on the tractor repair. Anymore input is gratefully appreciated.

It could be anyone of these spec numbers.

      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!😁
