Repower old Equipment

John Deere 285 Category

Available replacement parts listed below, please click product number to view more information about each replacement part.

Original Model: Kawasaki 18hp FD590V

8/21/2007 the FD590V and FD611V engines have been discontinued without much warning from Kawasaki. They say the replacement engine for this series of engine is the FD731V series, however the engine is set up a little different and is slightly larger. We will not in any way guarantee that it will fit

Our 331877-JD285-R1 kit has a 1" diameter shaft on it and will fit this tractor unless you have a 1-1/8" shaft and in that case you will need to buy our Sleeve-1-118x3 sleeve kit listed below.

General Disclaimer

While we may have sold many engines listed above to be used for a John Deere 285 Category, we are NOT claiming these are exact replacements unless the product notes explicitly say so. Many original equipment engines may no longer be in production because of obsolesence or EPA regulations, so in some cases there may not be an exact replacement available. Our intention here is to show that other customers have utilized these in the equipment shown, but may have had to make some modifications to do so. If we know of any required changes, we will list those, however, some adapting during installation should be expected.
