How much does it cost to rebuild a Kohler Engine?
Registered. I spend roughly $250-300 for a kohler rebuild of minimal parts and machine work. That is for dropping off the block and parts at the machine shop.
How long will a Kohler engine last?
Don’t want to be the bearer of bad news however, The Courage engine will more than likely never even get close to 2000 hrs. If you take really good care with how hard you run it and how frequent you change the oil and use synthetic oil you may get another 500 to 700 hrs. but that will just about let it out.
How can I get more power out of my Kohler engine?
Change carb, change the intake gaskets, change intake manifold, make changes to the intake and exhaust passages in the cylinder head, change the valves, change the exhaust manifold and muffler and making changes to the ignition timing. Take your pick! BTW, the govenor on these engines does not limit rpm.
Is Kohler Command Pro a good engine?
The Kohler Command Pro is a pretty good engine. I used a horizontal shaft on a demo mower before and thought it did pretty well. I had no issues with it for the few days I had it. Mostly, it was just a different style engine than I was used to since all I have ever used were vertical shaft engines.
What is the best oil to use in a Kohler Engine?
Kohler is pretty firm in their recommendation of 10W30 for their hydraulic valve engines. Kawasaki recommends straight 30, and B&G recommends synthetic 5w30 in the factory manuals.
Which Kohler engine is best?
Kohler recommends picking from the 2000, 3000, Command PRO, or XT Series for utility vehicles. Again, stronger engines are needed because utility vehicles are heavier and require greater power output. These lines are also considered best for commercial use.
