    I have a grasshopper 223 kohler 23 hp engine and it is air cooled. Anyway here in oklahoma it can get extreamly hot 110 degrees plus during the day and i can be running this machine between 3-4 hours at a time during the week not putting a lot of hours on it per week but when i do its on big properties. Anyway i have herd people talking about putting on an over sized oil cooler on their machines. Does anyone know where i could find one of these? I would just like to protect my investment a little if i can.

    You can download the accessories manual at the link below.
    If you have the room for a longer oil filter, that is a "poor mans" option. It'll give a couple more oz. oil capacity and a bit more heat transfer area than the stock filter. IF you already have the 3.4" long filter, there are other options, but the gasket may not fit exactly correct. OK, but not "correct".
