Engine Identification

Know Your Engine

KOHLER engine identification numbers (model, specification and serial) hold the keys to efficient repair, ordering the correct parts and engine replacement. These are printed on a silver decal, which is normally affixed to the blower housing of the engine. Make a note of your engine identification numbers in your owner's manual for handy reference.
