JD LX173, Kohler Command OHV Engine keeps droping mounting bolt

I have a JD LX173 with a Kohler Command OHV engine and it keeps vibrating out the mounting bolts. I am hoping the thread is not stripped. What are my options to fix and what if any problems might I encounter?

Use a thread locking compound on the bolts - and torque them to the correct spec.
This will prevent them shaking out.

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

Kohler command 20 twin engine - no spark

If there's no spark, then either the spark plug has come into contact with gas, or the ignition coil is bad. Try either replacing the spark plugs, or removing the old ones and seeing if the tips are damp.

If replacing them doesn't work or the plugs are dry, then try replacing the ignition coil.

Kohler Command 12.5 OHV (starter?)

You should properly test the battery. A dead cell in a battery will absorb the current that you are trying to supply by jumping.

There may be a fault in the wiring system, thus not allowing enough current to properly supply the starter. Construct a way to temp. connect the positive jumper cable lead to the tractors battery cable connection on the starter that will not short circuit and connect the other poss. end to your trucks poss.battery terminal and then connect the ground lead as normal but to the tractors frame, then attempt to start. If this allows the starter to operate properly then disconnect your jumpers and Inspect the positive and ground wires for insulation cracks, blisters and corrosion. Also check the connections for being clean and tight.

You could also remove the spark plugs ( to release compression that will allow the engine spin free) to see if the starter will then turn the engine.

If all fails, sorry to say, your starter may be weak and in need of replacement.

Good luck
