    I just put a new 25 Kohler on a mower . I ordered the engine from J Thomas, gave them all the engine family and spec codes and the replacement engine had a longer shaft. I just added washers under the bolt for the clutch and everything works fine.

    Is it this one: CV25S-69519 25 HP Command Twin Vertical 1-1/8"x3-5/32" Shaft, ES, OHV, 15 amp alt, Muffler,
    DROP SHIP ITEM $1,587.00

    If so, it is listed here:
    The Small Engine Warehouse - Kohler section

    Scroll down and look for it, it helps to have the Product number from your old engine (that number stamped on the metal plaque).
