    I just dismantled a CV15S-41571 Kohler motor. I am looking to rebuild it as cheap as possible, if that is possible. I can find all the parts I need except for the crankcase itself. I'm not looking for a complete short block, just the top half of the crankcase by itself because the old one is unusable. Can anyone give me any information on where to find one?
    I am just a backyard mechanic so please forgive me if I didn't say that right. Here are the motor #'s
    Family# SKH426U1G2RB
    Model# CV15S
    Spec# 41571
    Displ (cc) 426 =(26.0 cu.in3) the 3 is in superscript if that matters
    Serial# 2006107631

    The motor came off a John Deere LX255 Lawn Tractor

    Thanks,

    My dealer's parts look-up list "Use Shortblock" for the bare crankcase, That should sum it up that they don't offer just the bare crankcase.

    If I'm remembering correctly, I don't beleive it's available seprately.

    A short block is huge dollars. Buy a new engine kind of dollars.

    Find a used engine of the EXACT SAME model and spec at a local dealer and use that for parts.

    Develop a real good relation ship with local dealers and see if you can peruse their junkers.
