re-powering a 3112h

Recommended Posts

hi all I was wondering if any of the members have had any experience adapting one of the modern engines (kolher command/vanguards) to a 3112h or the equivilent a/c models of tractors. And if so what are some of the things they had to fabricate and or scrounge for. thanks john

I've not used one of those engines yet. I have a 14 Hp Kohler on my 61 Wards. It was almost a direct bolt on. If it fits within the chassis and sheet metal, then you have to drill drill holes to bolt down the engine if the pattern does not match. You may have to cut a hole for the oil drain. You may have to fabricate a driveshaft mount. You will have to rework the throttle cable, fuel line and electrical wiring. Sounds like a lot, but most is straight forward. Just remove the old engine, set the new one on the chassis, and see what is needed. If there is any advice I can give you that may help, email me. I've swapped several engines and built two pulling tractors using motorcycle engines for power. Rod H.

Rod, You puller guys are always so helpfull. A guy named Rob on this site basically talked me through a rebuild on a kohler, he probably thought it was like trying to talk a monkey into landing the space shuttle. thanks to you all for help and advice. Dougm

      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.

      Try this web site for the previous message I reported that did not work for you guys. 
      The message is about a man in Arkansas who builds miniature vehicles out of old refrigerators that are drivable.
