Kohler engine swap
« on: September 29, 2016, 01:39:43 PM »
hello i currently have a white outdoor lawn tractor with a blown kohler courage sv720-0017  which has a 15 amp alternator,  i am looking at a  Kohler Engine KT735-3014 with a 12amp alternator, every thing else seams to match, my question is will i have an issue with the lesser amps,  my mower does have a electric PTO.  the model number for the mower is 13ap62tk090.

I don't know what the specs are for your PTO, but assuming it uses around 50 to 60 watts, than you should be fine as far as electrical power in exceeding power out. In other words there should be enough power to keep your battery charged while mowing your lawn.

I found a clutch/PTO manufacturer that has a downloadable pdf file showing specs for the clutches they manufacture. The wattage of all the clutches mentioned in the file ranged from 50 to 68 watts. If you want specs specific to your clutch, than try contacting them and maybe they can cross reference your part number to their part number and tell you the exact power requirement for their clutch that fits your mower.  You shouldn't have any problems powering a PTO requiring 50 to 68 watts. Here is the link:
