If it helps, I have the same tractor and I have been using synthetic mobil 1 for 4 years. No problems, and the oil is always golden brown without changing... Seems to work great.

Sure, why not? They make synthetic oil for everything now days. Regular oil is fine for tractors though. It's not like they are racing up and down the street. No high mileage. But it is up to you, remember to write down the date so you can remember when you put it in, it will never break down like conv. oil. Might be good for 15 years! Hope this helps.

Head gasket blown. This is a very common issue with these V twin Kohler engines. There is a kit you can order from Kohler that includes gaskets and new improved head bolts. Simple hand tools is all that is needed. You will need an inch pound torque wrench. Torque specs are included in the kit.

What would cause 26hp kohler engine to start smoking suddenly?


Could be many things. Are you using multi viscosity oil instead of sae 30? Small engines will consume multi viscosity oil. Were you mowing or driving on a hillside when this happened? Is the oil level over the full mark? Could be worn piston rings, worn valve guides also.

Craftsman mower with 26hp kohler smokes when i cut on hill, why?


what happens is the oil gets into the valves which will come out the exhaust when on level ground after a side to side or going straight down because the valve's are in the front of engine which is pointing to the front of mower you wont hurt the engine if it does that i would just check the oil often to make sure it doesn't run out
