Kohler K241, 10HP for Cushman
I recently acquired a 10 HP Kohler that I thought might adapt to a snowmobile application on some 1962 > 66 Arctic Cat models by just changing the clutch.
.... WRONG! Once I researched the Kohler serial # data and the weird clutch, removal procedures,...which I found on this site THANK YOU BGW !!!... along with a lot of other neat stuff (like how to remove the OEM Cushman clutch AND a picture of what appears to be this model engine in a CG400).
I found converting this to a snowmobile application would require a different crank etc... BUT before I tear into it and make changes to a nice running original engine, I decided to check here to see if you or someone you know might be looking for one, I hate to cobble up a good "survivor"...though it is pretty hard to kill these old motors!
I can provide pictures and a video clip, (if I can figure out how to post here or send e-mail these using my Windows 10 application). As a newbie I can't PM yet but perhaps you can PM me, not sure.
In any event here are the details:Engine Data: K241A, ser#: C125516 (the C indicates it is a 1967 motor Spec 46379D ( 46 indicates its a 241 & listed as Cushman spec#. The drive clutch looks like but is not a CVT... Its an original and appears to be in good shape. In order to get running: cleaned carb, plus basic kit (changed the inlet and replaced gaskets)...Checked valve clearance...both OK, points were almost new,cleaned with elec cleaner..setting was ok.Changed the oil! Ready! Fired on first pull, using oem rope start plate on clutch pulley! And ran on second with 1/2 choke and a bit of throttle! opened choke.... ran for 1/2 hour .. Doesn't smoke or rattle, takes throttle well and governor works.
NOTE: No muffler, starter soleniod or regulator...but using "bench test" guidelines and test leads the starter does work( used it to restart engine several times) and it does generate, based on test results.. A Kohler metal fuel pump is in place, but I used gravity feed to test the engine so can't verify how well. Original Kohler greenish blue engine paint is still reasonably good as these motors ran protected from most elements under the seat and seldom got the hours and hard use faced on various tractor application, however its obviously not new! But...hasn't been repainted ...EXCEPT small shroud plate over cylinder head that someone painted black, probably to cover the only surface rust. Various scratch etc else wear but hasn't been beat up. I'm looking for a reasonable offer...$ ???.
This engine weights (my guess 130 lbs. +/-) with starter etc. So shipping is feasible but probably best way and least expensive would be by common carrier ..currently bolted to a test base I made so could easily be boxed or crated and foamed in, then strapped to a pallett for shipping.... at your cost... but I'd crate it & get it to business friend who does a lot of shipping and get you a better price than standard rates.
I'm going to give it a week or so here then go E-Bay I'd rather see someone here with a need for this motor get it... Thanks!
