If you don't run it any longer you make be able to replace the connecting rods and clean the aluminum from the rods off crankshaft with a very fine emery cloth. A clyliner hone and a new set of rings would also be needed.providing the cylinders arent scored. A gasket set and parts would probably set you back about 100 to 150.

18hp Briggs & Stratton twin cyl, vertical crank, built into a Murray ride-on mower 1996 model 18ic/46. Where can I get info on this?


There is a hole through the pulley that the crankshaft goes through and is keyed with a square key stock, from underneath you will insert at least a 6 inch extension with a 5/8 socket on the end, the bolt will turn counter clockwise, it is fine thread so do not misplace it. Some times some oil and heat is needed to get the pulley loose, I unbolt the engine from the tractor and jerk it straight up as hard as I can and as many times as needed to get it off. Try not to bend the belt grooves with a hammer and pry bars as they are not all exactly the same and can be a chore to find another one.

Is it possible to replace my Kohler Command CV491S with a Kohler Command PRO CV620?


technically it is possible to do a heart trnasplant
all you need to check are the mounting flange holes or be able to drill new holes in the mower frame
and next the method of attaching the drive pulley or pto to the crank shaft has to be considered

Motor seeized on a 18hp kohler engine


You will have to do a complete overhaul. That means taking the head off and opening the crank case to see why it seized. I have seen horizontal mmounted engines that have excess wear in the cylinder from lack of adequate oil distribution. Some of these engines use paddles to splash oil into the cylinder when it is running and that is not adequate.

Hi, I have a Craftsman Garden Tractor 18HP Twin, model mo. 917.255919 that has a transaxle leak. The transaxle takes about 5 quarts of SAE 30 Motor Oil. I took the transaxle apart last summer to fix a gear...


I would drain transaxel out and refill with 80w90 gear oil. I think the 30 w is way to thin. You can try some lucas trasmisson sealer and conditioner and see if that helps.
If you have to remove the transaxel I would use hi-temp silicon sealer to seal all seams and arou
nd axel shafts. I have a six year old craftsman garden tractor 18 h.p. twin mod.number 917.2722751 and I'm nearly sure it uses the same transaxel so if you do have to get into the transaxel the oil seal part number is 788088A.I can not find the suggested quanity of oil but I just fill to top thru oil fill plug on top front of transaxel.Hope this helps you. Thanks

I have an older Sears Craftsman air compressor 1hp, 100 psi twin cyl Model 106.154541. on the cyl base there is an oil fill directly across from this on the opposite side of the cyl base there is another...


The pump used on your compressor was incorporated into different designs thus needed access to oil fill from one side or the other. Part number for oil plug was std-220 or 27642, but you can use just regular standard pipe thread plug with square head. If the oil plug fits the other hole. Buy plumbing parts at Lowes. Good Luck
