I have a Kohler CV14T on a Toro Proline had a problem

Customer Question
I have a Kohler...

I have a Kohler CV14T on a Toro Proline had a problem starting installed a new ignition module and a regulator/rectifier started up fine but the blades would not engage. Put the old reg/rec back on and they engaged with no problem. Called supplier they said they had no problem with that part but sent me a replacement anyway, I installed it when it arrive and the blades would not engage. Put old one back on and works fine. Any ideas or could both new ones be defective.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Yes to all.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Can you provide me with the spec number from your CV14T engine? This will help me to identify the correct regulator/rectifier for your engine. Since the mower is pull start only and has no battery then I suspect that you have the wrong rectifier/regulator. However since it is working with the old one then I don't see a real issue, I would ask for a refund from the place where you purchased the regulator/rectifier if they will give you one(most places will not accept returns on electrical parts). It does require a different regulator versus a machine with electric start.

Hi John, thanks for getting back to me, my name is ***** ***** spec number is *****
Technician: JohnF2015, Technician replied 2 months ago

I apologize for it taking this long for me to get back with you.

Based off of your spec number you need a Kohler 12755111S regulator/rectifier kit. You could also use an aftermarket Stens 435-563 which would do the same at a lesser cost.

Because you have no battery on the machine it requires a higher output regulator in order to operate the electric clutch for the mower deck.

I hope that you find this information to be helpful.

John, I sent a reply right after I sent the spec number, that same time I had a message directly
from Kohler who I contacted before I did just answer, they gave me the info I needed with the
correct part number and the supplier would not do a refund but agreed to send me the correct part.
Technician: JohnF2015, Technician replied 2 months ago
I am glad that you have gotten it figured out. Was the number that Kohler gave you the same as what I sent to you? Have a great weekend! Sorry that the supplier would not do a refund however that does happen a lot on electrical parts.
