  1. Take a short length of 1/8 tubing and insert down your funnel while filling and it will allow air to escape while adding fluid. Don't know how much it takes though. I'm sure someone else will let you know.
  2. Bench firing a Kohler M12

    You can run this engine on the bench with no wires connected to anything. Just touch the starter with 12 volts from a battery or charger and it will run if it is able. To kill it just pull the plug wire and you will have no worries about possible damage to any components. ezy peezy.
  3. Dealer List

    Jack Modlin had the dealership in North Vernon IN until the early 1980's. I worked with Jack after that at the Carpenter Body plant building buses. I think he would have rather kept working on red tractors than buses.
  4. Raider 12 overheating

    Don't forget that these Kohler engines need to be de-carboned every 500 hours. A piece of carbon can stay glowing red in the head and cause pre-ignition causing overheating. Not saying that is your case but is a possibility.

    Thanks for the welcomes but I am not smart enough to load pics until maybe my daughter can help. Right now the raider is in pieces all over the shop with most cleaned, painted and ready to be reassembled. The transmission is apart right now and a few of the parts in there have seen better days. The 5174 low and reverse gear on the input shaft is chewed up and needs replaced and the 7213 Hi/Lo detent bolt is broke. Besides seals and a new gasket Is there any other parts I should replace while in there? Maybe new thrust washers and circlips on the axles? While here I want to say thanks to Steveasaurus for his transmission videos. Very well done and will save this horse for better days ahead.

    New guy here. Been lurking for a while and finally got on board. Great forum. I have a 1969 raider 10 that i got the day after the original owner traded it in on a 312-8. It had a one year old K301 replacement engine when I got it in 1986 and it still the best running Kohler engine on the place. After 31 years of being rode hard and put up wet, I finally have gotten around to giving her a well deserved restoration. I hope to be able to get some advise and a couple leads on a few parts to get her back to top shape. She was still being used right up until being pulled into the shop last month.
