    I was wondering if anyone knew of a website, or actually knew if i could replace my kohler CV20s-65516, 65553 with a CV20sh 65561. I have not been able to find the exact engine to replace my old one and this one i found is very cheap compared to others. Thanks

    P.S. The engine is on a 2000 Z150 Toro Zmaster

    All I can Tell you is all three of these spec. numbers have a different crankshaft and shortblock part numbers I couldn't get the crankshaft drawing page to come up so I couldn't compair pto end.
    The replacement engine part# is 67542 ,Shortblock part# 24 522 09 For spec.# 65516.
    Complete for spec.# 65553 is part# 24 014 32 S ,Shortblock part# 24 522 14 S

    Maybe this is of some help , I would Shortblock Myself and save some money.

    The reason i was wondering is because i found this an entire the entire engine for $700.00 on smallenginewarehouse.com, which is a heck of a deal. The one i found on the site was the sn# 65561.

    Normally I would be able go to my Kohler Dealer web site and pull up the crankshaft measurements on your engine and the new engine,But Kohler is having a problem with this page It's not coming up.
    If you can get the crank measurements of the new engine to compare with your old one thats the only thing I think mite give you a problem.
