Kohler carbs

Anybody know the difference between the Kohler carb on a 10hp and a 12hp? Is it a bigger carb or just bigger jetting? (yes, I'm too lazy to look it up).

Re: Kohler carbs

Are they interchangeable?

The reason I'm asking is that I have a K301 without a carb and the only spare I have is one a K241.

Yes they're interchangeable. I once used 10hp carb parts on a K301. They fit and it ran fine.

Re: Kohler carbs

I think the 10 and 12 HP motors used identical carbs.

Re: Kohler carbs

Ron you could look at the Kohler parts book to confirm if the needles are the same

Agreed--it's the same engine block if I remember correctly, with the 12HP K301 just having a piston that's about 1/4 inch bigger or so, for the extra 2HP. I also believe (thought) the carbs were identical.

Re: Kohler carbs

They both call for a #26 Kohler carb.

Gotta love those thumpers.
