Overview

User-Friendly.

Top-mounted, quick change oil filter is easy to reach and since most of the oil is drained before removal, there's no mess to clean up. Removable cylinder covers require only one tool and provide access to the entire cylinder for thorough cleaning.

High Power Performance.

Overhead valve technology provides greater volumetric efficiency and a higher compression ratio. This produces more power, improved fuel economy and cooling and reduces oil consumption. In addition, there is virtually no carbon buildup, reducing overall maintenance costs.

Durable, Long Life Design.

Hydraulic valve lifters are oil pressurized, ensuring that push rods stay in constant contact with the rocker arms. Requiring no adjustment, the valve train is virtually maintenance-free. In addition, full-pressure lubrication delivers continuous lube to critical engine components, and integrated oil cooler is mounted under the cylinder cover for a compact engine profile and superior cooling. Large capacity, in-line fuel filter provides extra protection against dirt particles that can clog fuel lines.

* Length is blower housing to heavy duty air cleaner. Width is valve cover to valve cover. Height is mounting surface to top of air cleaner.
1 Power (hp) and Torque (lbs ft) specifications for Kohler general purpose engines are rated pursuant to Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J1940 based on gross output testing performed according to SAE J1995 without the air cleaner and muffler. Actual engine power and torque are lower and affected by accessories (air cleaner, exhaust, charging, cooling, fuel pump, etc.), application, engine speed, ambient operating conditions (temperature, humidity and altitude) and other factors. This J1940 / J1995 rating provides consistent measurement to customers who may want to control the intake and exhaust features of the engine. For more information, contact Kohler Co. Engine Engineering Department. Kohler Co. reserves the right to change product specifications, designs and standard equipment without notice and without incurring obligation.
