Thank you for your question.

 

I looked up the mode number you submitted. The correct part number for the head gasket kit is 24-841-04-S. I am not sure why the kit no longer includes the bolts. I double checked the service manual and it does state to use new bolts when installing the head. The part number for the new head bolts is 12-086-16-S. I also looked in the service manual for a model that uses studs. I did not see any in class of engine. They may use stud in another style engine with the same gasket. While I was on the Kohler site I looked for bulletins that say why the bolts do not come in the kit. I did not see any bulletins on this issue. The parts for your engine can be ordered from the following link. Replacement parts for a Kohler engine model CV740-0024.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thanks for your response Mark. My manual also states that new bolts/screws should be used when replacing the head gasket, but that be assuming that you are using the same head gasket (i.e. same part no.). The new head gasket is a different part no. and at one website I saw an advertisement that the new improved gasket no longer requires the use of replacing the head bolts. My engine does indeed have head bolts for sure , since I just took it off the engine, so the kit with the nuts is like you said for another engine model with studs. Somehow, I have to verify whether the new head gasket was truly improved so that the bolts can be reused. I talked to some people that have my same engine and they blew their head gaskets prematurely. This is why I think Kohler gave the gasket a new part no., i.e. they changed the design. But I am not sure yet.

I double checked on the Kohler website for any information on the head gasket kit. I could not find anything that says you no longer need to replace the bolts when installing the new gasket. To ensure you do not have a problem with the new gasket I recommend replacing the bolts. I replaced enough of these gaskets to know if you try to cut any corners, they will fail. I accidently reused the bolts one side.(not really by accident I just was not thinking) I figured it would be fine because I torqued the bolts. I was back out for the same problem within a month.
