powerbandthriller495: cool. what are you gonna put the motor on
LynolsOffice: Yeah, cool they are, affordable they are not. They're almost $1,000 over
the cost of a carburetter equipped version of the same Kohler.
LynolsOffice: No. Besides there being no way to mount it horizontally, the carb is
different for verticals.
MAG315: Do you think that loose bolt may have been the cause of the engine to lose
oil and blow in the first place?
LynolsOffice: Yeah, lol. It's Dave's ringtone.
Bio Power: You probably found the fault by now, I have a Toro that had this fault when
I bought it (so I got it cheap) it had no power to the solenoid on the
bottom of the carby. When unplugged it measured 12 volts on the connector
but when plugged in there was not enough current available, turned out to
be a fault in the key switch.
themaritimeman: Sweet! That thing runs awesome with a good block! So, with this different
block, will this engine still make 25 HP? Hehe, when Dave said that the
muffler probably had gas in it, I prepared by turning the volume down. lol!
No bang, though.
Zach Davis: @Nicko617 and the reliability!
Michael Luscher: those kohlers are quiet right, im looking at a roper gt 22 horse kohler
with the 50'deck, advice?
LynolsOffice: I've seen those fuel injected ones online, totaly awesome. They're just
like a car with a fuel injector for each cylinder!
adb140275: not to mention youll seize the pistons to the cylinders
biggray94: I like the test stand. Where did you get the frame?
Zach Brown: Ahh, you shoulda left the muffler off man, them things sound great with
gasman7777: nice job. runs nice and smooth. should be able to put down plenty of power
for that craftsman.
LynolsOffice: Oh yeah we put it back in later that day in fact. We also got rid of that
easy-drain oil plug which was only finger tight when we got the engine,
blown, with no oil in it. I wonder why...
pnutsnz: lovely job well done guys
Nick'sGarageDoorService: Not trying to be a jerk here, but why do you guys always start these
engines at full throttle? Revving a cold engine is never ever good for
it... Look at it like this. How would you like to wake up in the morning,
fly out Of bed and start running as fast as you can? lol I always try to
start my tractors at idle, and usually if they won't then I'll use the
choke, but as soon as it starts I flip it down to idle. And some I've just
flat out installed separate choke controls.
douro20: Good thing you got that rebuilt; that's one expensive engine.
Garrett Jdbe: well it is a crapsman
condo630: That's what bench tests are for.
LynolsOffice: I guess that would be the Briggs & Stratton 26hp V-twin on the Wizard.
pat12047: its amazing how many of theese kohlers end up like that with thrown rods.
BMAN294: I have a Kohler Command 20 (horizontal shaft) and when it gets really hot
it starts sputtering and eventually dies and will not run unless it sits
for a while - do you know what would cause that
marbeer17: Where can I buy block like this?, mine is cracked so I need to replace it.
It's just like this Kolker Pro 25 hp V twin. Thanks.
kyl75: what is the most powerful lawnmower you have?
Nicko617: i looove the sound of a kohler!!!
B04rD3r4LiFe: Would this work horizontally for a go kart?
ImKnotSane: Great video. I have the same engine in the same tractor. Bought it approx.
5 years ago and the motor started blowing oil. I have the motor out and i
haven't pulled it apart yet but you video gives me hope that I can get it
running again. I wish you had video'd the rebuild. Thanks though. I bought
that motor because I understood that the Kohler was the way to go. Payed an
extra $300 dollars to get the Kohler instead of the Briggs. I learned this
Kohler has had problems.
wassahilden: kohler's are my favorite small engines, we have 2 and all i have personally
done on either of them is clean the points on the one that was made in
1980-ish. The other is a fuel injected v-twin on a Dixie chopper
Tyler Huckaby: @LynolsOffice i guess its all prefrance but id rather have a 10 hp honda
than a 15 hp briggs
Dax Marshall: slap a roots blower on that puppy
dangeroustoys56: Nice- the motor that used to be on my 85 craftsman(14.5HP OHV briggs) would
smoke horrible- the valve cover gasket leaks and dripped all over the
muffler. Good thing y caught the leak before it lost all its oil-
LynolsOffice: You can hear it idle at 4:40, it's pretty quiet at idle too.
Mark McGee: I dare someone to use a pull cord on that thing
deere3321: I love Kohler commands. Good video.
30GB: its another block so its not the blown one but they said that the guy did
not put oil or maintain the oil level his engine so it blew
chainsawmurder1: Mine actually caught fire
Smallgasengine1: Please do the honda mower !!
1337bman: bye bye briggs hello Kohler!
DMJR13: Want this on my horse
Michael Luscher: @LynolsOffice the plastic casing around the engine kinda looks like one of
a bmw, chunky black plastic and chrome stripes?
LynolsOffice: Yeah it's going back on the Craftsman GT5000
2000F350powerstroke: too bad its goin back in i would have bought it for my cube tractor if 1 i
had enough money 2 if it wasnt going to get put into the crapsman
05fordgtx1: Briggs are the beat engines money can bay
BlueBirdTC2000RE: that song starting at 0:13 thats from sonic the hedgehog
Caneone420: I have a GT5000 that starts choke out but when I push the choke in it dies.
I'm draining the gas and replacing the fuel filter today. Any advice will
NRP1991: Wow that is kick ass! great rebuild! kohler huh...gotta mean tone to them
LynolsOffice: Yeah, the block we bought is from the exact same model engine, and all the
parts on it are off the original 25hp motor.
