Hi all.

Any problems that I dont know of putting a 16 hp K341AQS in place of a K241AS?

I know both frames are basicly the same, but I mean things like the mounting plates, bolt holes in the frame etc... The reason I am asking is I have a way to get a complete K341 out of a JD 216 and it looks to be in good shape.

Thanks in advance!!!

The JD engine will probably have a 1" crank, WH use a 1 1/8" so you will need a diff. drive pulley and PTO sleeve, now if you have a 8 speed tractor those parts will not be a issue fairly easy to find off a 8hp engine or some tucky powered WH's now if you have a hydro the drive pulley is very hard to find, a few other things to look at, dip stick location, the throttle set up, but you should be able to swap the 10hp stuff over, some JDs use a diff. carb set up and the 10 carb will not work, you will have to swap oil pans, it can be done but some things will have to be addressed.

Hi Merrie!

I think you asked this a while back but I dont know if someone answered you or not. "A" is special oil pan, "Q" means quet model (?) and the "S" means electric start. I included a partial pic of the page from Kohler manual. :thThumbsU

Thanks Kelly.
This is the complete engine with carb, pulleys etc.... I can probably get the rest of the frame, seat and broken plastic for the same price as the engine. It would be going onto a C-101 with 10hp and 8 speed, so I guess the set up shouldnt be impossible, just time consuming.

What oil pan does it have? If it is the cub cadet style without the mounting ears, the whole block is different.

As for the 1" crank, it's pretty easy to make a tube to slip over it.

AQS? I always thought it was American Quarter Horse Society:dunno:!

Im not really sure. I couldnt get to the "wreck" all the way around to see specifics other than the tag that read K341AQS, 16HP and it had the full carbureator other than the air cleaner.

From the little I was able to see, it did look like the engine set rather low into the frame on the 216. Almost like the car frames that are bent down for a cradle where the motor sits to allow for hood room. It looked HUGE in that little Deere.

The later WHs used the other style of pan/engine when they began using rubber motor mounts. I I have one in a '68 Charger but I had to do a lot of work to make mounts for it.
