    Hi: I’ve got a John Deere 316 (1984 model) that has a tired Onan engine. Currently am a snow bird here in AZ but home is northern MN. Will be going back in April and one of the first things I need to do is yank the Onan engine. Been looking at your Honda 630 re- power kit. Question: Does the Honda engine fit in with no modifications to the tractor frame? (oil filter location?) It comes with a flywheel/driveshaft adapter? I believe the kit # is 5316. Thanks, TF

    The John Deere 316 kit comes with everything that you need to do the installation including the flywheel adaptor.

    In regards to fitment, there are two ways to install the Honda. If you use our mounting plate, you will need to notch the side panel for clearance of the oil cap and dipstick. It is about a 1.5″ diameter cap. This is the way that we recommend that you install the unit. Alternatively, you can remove our mounting plate and re-drill the existing plate. This would eliminate all clearance issues.

    We also provide unlimited technical support with all of our kits. If you have questions during install, just give us a call. 800.700.9501

    Hello! I’m interested in ordering the repower kit for a John Deere 420. My only question at this point is, how is the front PTO pully/clutch adapted to the honda engine? I haven’t seen any mention of this in other posts.

    Jeff,

    We adapt the clutch to the Honda using a shaft sleeve and hardware set. For more specifics, please feel free to call me direct at 541-636-2371.

    Jason,

    Thank you for posting! While we have the ability to put a Command engine in the 420, we generally recommend the Honda GX630 (24.5 Est. Gross HP). Please feel free to call us at 800-700-9501 Ext. 1 for more details. I can also run you through the Kohler option at that time as well.

    do any hood/side panel alterations need to be made to repower on a jd 420 lawn tractor? I understand this kit #5420 for the 420 to be complete, when I get to the bottom of the box, the tractor is ready to go, right? Is 6-8 hours accurate on a jd 420/honda repower? Tractor is to good to get rid of and origional onan engine is junk. Will I as happy with honda engine as I was with onan engine since 1988 when this mower was new? I just mow grass with it, 60″ deck. How much of the old onan system do I use with this repower kit?

  19. admin says:

    Kyle,

    Thank you for posting. The 5420 kit does not require modification of the side panels or hood. In regards to completeness, this kit comes with a kit guarantee. If there is anything more required for installation, we will send it free of charge (this assumes that your JD 420 is currently complete).

    In regards to installation time, I generally provide the following:
    -If a Repower tech were to put this in, it would take us 3-4 hours. This is due to the fact that we work with our kits every day.
    -If a shop asks me what they should quote this at, I usually say somewhere in the 6 hour range
    -If an individual with a basic mechanical inclination and a standard set of tools is performing the install, I would say to leave a weekend.

    We also provide unlimited technical support. If you run into snags, call Repower and get assistance from one of our techs.

    The Honda is rated at 24.5 Est. Gross HP (20.8 Net). The Onan was rated at 20 Gross HP. In other words, you will experience better performance with the new Honda. In addition to this, the Honda is an overhead valve engine. This means you will also get better fuel economy. The Honda is also a hemi-style engine that ships with an extra-large oil cooler and contains a pretty sophisticated cooling baffling system. In other words, you will be happier with the Honda versus the Onan.

    Finally, we do not use any of the Onan system as it is discontinued and parts are near impossible to source correctly.

    For further information, or to place an order, feel free to contact me direct at 541-636-2371.

  20. Thomas R. Maine says:

    Brandon, how does one take the pulleys off the existing Onan? I spoke with you yesterday but forgot to ask that question.

  21. admin says:

    Thomas,

    Generally there is just a bolt in the end of the crank that is removed. You may also have 2-4 bolts holding a casing on the block of the engine. when all bolts are removed, the drive line assembly should slide off. Sometimes it can be rusted on. If WD40 doesn’t do the trick, a puller may be necessary. However, using a puller can also lead to breaking the drive line assembly.

    Call me if any of this is not clear. 541-636-2371

    What modifications do I need to make to my John Deere 400 tractor if I install your Honda GX360 engine replacement kit?

    Good Morning,
    I need to repower my 1992 318, does your kit come with any instructions? Do you send new trottle and choke cables? Any modifications to hood or side panels needed?

    Thanks,
    Brian

  25. admin says:

    Brian,

    Thank you for contacting Repower Specialists. We do provide a complete set of instructions with every 318 kit. Additionally, we provide unlimited phone and email technical support should you require it.

    In regards to modifications, there are 2 ways to mount the Honda:

    1. You may re-drill the existing frame. In this scenario, there is no side-panel modification, but a shorter drive belt is provided.
    2. We provide a bolt in mounting plate as well. If you use this plate, you would need to notch the right side panel. We recommend this option.

    Please feel free to contact me direct at 541-636-2371 with additional questions.

    Hello, My dad has a John Deere 214. he bought it new in the 70’s. Although still running,not very good, My brother and I would like to restore it for him, still used daily. Not sure the horsepower. Do you have engine replacement for this model? and can we install a bigger engine in it? If so could you give me a ball park figure on price. Really appreciate it. thankyou

  27. admin says:

    Danny,

    Thank you for contacting Repower Specialists Ltd. You have what Kohler calls an “A-Block” engine in the 214. We have successfully replaced the A-Block with the Vanguard 18HP in the past. While we have the installation parts to do this job, it is not a “bolt-in” slam dunk like most of our kits. Typically costs ofr these packages runs in the $1,800.00-$2,000.00 range. I would suggest that you call us direct to discuss the details of this project with me or one of our techs.

    i have a 425 john deere just put a hole in block and it appears that deere does not have replacement kaw engines. iIhave looked on the net and have decided to look at your offering of the briggs 23 hp vanguard. Are there any alterations to side covers or hood for exaust or other reasons Power wise will it be as good as the kaw? Does this use same motor mounts? I assume the wiring will have a harness or detailed hook up instructions this unit is used for mowing only . another concern is the hydraulic is cooled with the liquid by being air cooled does this still keep the hydraulic fluid cool enough?.

  46. Brandon Huber says:

    Lonnie,

    Thank you for contacting Repower Specialists Ltd. There are no alterations to the side panels, hood, or exhaust with this install. However, units with 4-wheel steering are not compatible with our kit.

    In regards to the output, the Vangaurd 23 will have more power than the Kawasaki. It will also be more fuel efficient.

    We provide a complete set of instructions as well as technical support. If you have questions, you can always call in and talk with one of our techs.

    The engine coolant does not cool the hydraulic fluid. In fact, by removing the heat from the radiator system, the radiator will be more effective at cooling the hydro fluid.

    Please call if you have further questions.
