Hello!
Thank you for choosing Just Answer for the solution to your problem.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am going to assist you with this.

What are the model and spec numbers of the engine itself?
.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Sorry Hank, I do not have the model and spec numbers as requested, I cannot find the owner's handbook. My best guess is that it is a single cylinder Kohler engine, side valve, approx 1990 vintage, and the mower is labelled 12.5 hp electric start.

Expert:  Hank F. replied 2 years ago.
There will be a tag or sticker on the engine itself that has the model number.
You will not be able to get the correct parts without the proper model and specification number.

In order to get the model number I will have to carry out major reorganization in my garage, since my mower is buried under other household objects. This will lead to a delay of about a day before I can answer you.

Expert:  Hank F. replied 2 years ago.
That is no problem - we are not on a time limit here.

Sorry to be such a pain, but we have to know exactly which engine we are dealing with.

Hello Hank


I have at last unearthed the mower, and find that engine details are as follows:


 


KOHLER COMMAND 12.5


 


Model CU1258T, could be CV1258T


Spec 1203


Serial No. XXXXXXXXXX /p>

Expert:  Hank F. replied 2 years ago.
The model number for that should be CV12.5, with a spec of 1203.
I'm not sure what the 8T (maybe BT?) is.

The part number for a standard intake valve is 12-017-01-S.
The part number for a .025 over intake valve is
12-017-02-S.

The part number for a standard exhaust valve is
12-016-01-S.
The part number for a 0.25 over exhaust valve is
12-016-02-S.

The part number for the push rods is
12-411-04-S.
