Kohler K301 into a K341

Recommended Posts

Hello again, guys (gals?)

Fixin' to order parts for Miss Anna's Cub Cadet (I know, this is NOT the Cub "group"), and noted that the rod is the same for 12hp (K301) and 14hp (K341) Kohler engines, and the 14hp piston is only +/- .125" larger in dia. and seems to have the same compression height. My ? is has anyone here ever bored a K301 more than .030" over?

Tim Yes you can bore the K301 out to make a 14 HP out of it. I have done several of them and had no problems. I am into pulling tractors and we save lots of blocks by boring to a bigger piston. I have some running with +.030 14 HP pistons in the K 301 blocks. Kohler put a lot of meat in those old engines. I am sure you will enjoy the Duetz you have and will get it shook out in time. I think you will find there in not a better deck on the market when it comes to cutting and doing a good job. Good to have you here with us on the forum. Larry

      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
