Will a K-321 fit in my 86 without changing frame rails?

Refresh my menmory what hp? Geared starter or s/g? AS or AQS?

The geared starter has a larger flywheel and flywheel housing for a wide frame. I’m not sure, I don’t remember if the sheet metal from a As fits the aqs. But the crankbearing with plate would have to be used from a 10/12 narrow frame. Or it might be possible to knotch her out the narrow frame and put two wings were the larger flywheel is. :hattip:
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

K-321 is a 14 hp single cylinder Kohler engine. Most would probably have the geared starter on the 14 hp units. The 86 came with a 8 hp K-181 Kohler, if I remember correctly, but the 86 was a wide frame tractor, so it should fit. Someone with a better memory may correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, it will fit, no problem! The cc 149 and 1450 tractors ran that engine and the frames are the same as the 86.
