Q:

head gasket replacement 917.276120

A:

 

 

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.

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.
