Hi All! Happy July 4 !!

Are there numbers or plates or something printed, cast or embossed on the Kohler K series engine *blocks* to tell which model/size they are? I have an engine I think is a 10hp K241 but it has no tins on it. I checked near/around the shaft on the end opposite the flywheel thinking there might be a stamped/embossed number there but there is not. I am pretty sure it is a 10hp K241 out of a late model 110 with hydraulic lift— it still has the green idler pulley on a short arm that matches the drawing on John Deere parts page. Again, I’ve got no tins for this engine, it was in a barn for years and recently given to me by a friend who thought it was a 12hp K301.

Thank You!

You were looking in the right area but you may need to take a few parts off to get down to
the cast-in number on the block. It's above the PTO, behind the sheaves. Note that some
K241 engines were built with a K301 casting. At the very worst, you might have to pull
the head and measure the bore and stroke.

The only accurate way to tell is to pull the head and measure the diameter of the bore.
