    This Kohler beyond repair?

    It will spend a good while placed to one side, maybe in a few years I will get stuck into it 👍

    Problem stripping c141

    Well I'm happy to report all I need to do is punch out some pins and split the box from the frame had a very productive few hours at it with one of my pupils at school! He loved it too The pin was just being stubborn and I think was slightly mushroomed. I've a few broken bolts but overall rather good

    Problem stripping c141

    Haha I'm confused but don't worry I'm sure no apologies necessary 😊 I hadn't noticed to be honest good spot! Yeah I will be rebuilding the 14hp at some point but am very happy to have the 16hp for it. In a perfect world I would have a c161 or c160 but I refuse to sticker it up as c161 when the plate says c141.

    Problem stripping c141

    Thanks so much for that it's going to be REALLY helpful! Unfortunately I looking at the diagram looks like if I remove the bolt it should just slide out but it doesn't. I have sprayed dismantling oil and the tube slides freely on the shaft but just won't budge. I'm scared of breaking something trying to knock it through from the right. I believe I'm working on a 79 The 2 bloody brake shoe bolts have snapped too, need some extractors.

    Problem stripping c141

    Thanks, going to make finding and replacing them fun lol. I've had a look at the service and owners manual with no luck. Anyone have a link to the parts manual for the c series on red square I can only find electrical and trans docs Exploded diagram sort of thing Ah found on oartstree looks like it should just pull out of the tube. Chisel and lube time

    Problem stripping c141

    Evening, So I've got an issue with the brake axle pivot bit. It looks like there's a mini "axe pin" on the left held with a bolt. I have removed the bolt and it will turn with force but it won't come out so I can remove the brake shaft. Also were these metric or imperial as some metric sockets fit some bolts but not all. Any ideas? Thanks

    This Kohler beyond repair?

    Thanks armed with a video or 2 I feel comfortable taking it apart as it needs a proper going over and all the swarf removing. I was worried about the crank as they are hard to come by ECT but if repairable great. I thought I would need to sell it as parts to recoup the tractors purchase price but as the deck alone has almost covered that! I will be putting this engine aside, restore the c141 as a c141 (fitted with a 16hp) then restore the 14hp at a later date and keep it with the tractor. Too few about to get shut for a few quid it seems. Thanks for the clarity I just didn't want to be sat on scrap If it's beyond economical repair and only good as parts.

    What about from the other end of the crank? Can the "counter weights" be skimmed to remove scores/gouges? Looking at the picture it appears its broken off the bottom of the cylinder on the left

    Thanks I think your right, it's possibly one for the future. I think I might just leave it for now I've got the k341 and the whole tractor to worry about first. I was thinking about selling it as parts but I'll sit on it.

    I'm afraid I can't answer any of that as I'm veeeery new to all this and it would be my first foray into engines other than bits and bobs up top. I don't know it's history as it came to me with a tractor yesterday and was opened by the previous owner and broken bits removed. He couldn't give me any information on what had happened. Not very helpful I'm afraid

    Homemade WH deck

    To be honest it looks like a much better option than the original, I would keep it but I need the money for the tractor and don't have the storage

    Its safe to say it needs stripping isn't it? I've seen some videos on YouTube on how to do it. I could get some better pictures then and take it from there. I think it's quite badly scored though and on the left you can see it's worn down the "shoulder"
