Kohler CH740 electrical connections

Recommended Posts


I have a Kohler CH740 that the timing gear on the crankshaft split. I replaced the crank and also the cam and lifters per Kohlers recommendations. I want to run the engine on the bench before I sell it to make sure it runs OK.

My question is which wires do what on the plug coming out of the engine. I know the violet wire is from the rectifier and goes to battery positive. The other wires are a double red, green, and white. I think the white is the engine kill???

I've looked at the wiring diagrams on the Kohler site but they make no sense to me. I've always been weak on electrical stuff.



EDIT... The spec number is 0087. It came out of a X-Mark zero turn mower. 27 HP @ 3800 mRPM
