Kohler20HP Oil Pressure

Recommended Posts

My Kohler 20HP Magnum is lighting the Oil Pressure lamp. It started flickering at low RPM a while back, but we have had so little rain/snow/reason-to-start-the-tractor, that I just let it slide. After a while, the OP Lamp became a steady glow. So, I drained the oil, changed the filter, added new SAE30, and started 'er up.....same indication. The oil level is fine. The ET meter indicates ~875 hours. I have no reason to suspect that the engine was ever torn down. What to do next??[A href='http://home.ceinetworks.com/~kfrick']http://home.ceinetworks.com/~kfrick[/a]

Hi Karl, I think MPH is correct. Sending units can cause alot of problems. If you notice any oil leakage around the sending unit, do as MPH described. Even if is not leaking, internal problems could be there.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
