Question Carb Swapping??

Hello all,
I've recently aquired a JD STX38. It has a 12.5 Kohler Command. I've heard form a retired mechanic that the only difference between the 12.5 & the 14 is the carb. I thought, 'interesting'. Then today I was messing on the web & stumbled across this page.

quote: "BTW Lee, the only differance in the 12 hp and the 14 HP on that engine is the carb. Think it was like $35 when I needed a new carb to make mine a 14 hp."

Could any of you guys lead me in the right direction? Is this the carb cost or just certain parts in tha carb that will make the conversion?



p.s. - what are the image & link codes??

Hello Blue!

I have heard the same thing you have, but not verified it. I think it is true though. I don't know which parts would make the change.

Image and link codes are set by the forum administration...either to allow links and images or not.
