    hello newbie here!i got a wheel horse 724Z for free today and the kohler engine sometimes starts but wont stay running(sometimes)?does anyone have any schematics i can look at?
  2. Are you sure it's a Kohler because most of them had a Onan Engine ?

    i am positive its a kohler. heres the specs-its a wheel horse 724-Z zero turn with a 25 horse power kohler command with electric clutch for the blades it has a 54" deck. i know toro and dixie had connections with these. today i went in my garage and started to tinker on it a little. so i got it started and tried to move but it figited then stopped and it kept doing that so i looked at the drive line and there is a shaft that runs from the motor to the hydro pump then splits of to the hydro motors? ill try to post a pic in a minute


  6. Someone must have changed the engine at one time because I don't remember Wheel Horse ever having one with a 25 Hp Kohler engine in one. Looks like a 1986 to a 1989 model. Vin Number should be something like Z1-24oe01
    For a parts breakdown see link


    Brand - Toro Consumer

    Then scroll to the bottom and Z1-20KE01 - Click enter

    wow i really chopped up that reply but i what i was saying was are there supposed to be four bolts that hold the shaft that runs to the gear box (in the middle) to the motor? i can really tell on the schematics on emerichsales.com but it looks like there should be four there?
