  1. 12 HP Kohler compression question

    Hi, I confess to know virtually zero about this engine, but to offer some clarity. I believe your engine is as per the Service Manual link provided by Garry earlier, i.e CH12.5. ACR System is described in Section 10 page 1 (page 89 of the Manual). As your engine operates with Hydraulic Valve Lift using full Oil pressure, I would suspect the possible cause lies with intermittent sticking Valve Lifters (or Oil pressure) on start up, or the ACR lifting pin is faulty. For an engine to build up such pressure in the cylinder and to have to undo the Spark Plug to relieve it, neither valve is lifting when it should, but at least you must have good seals on piston rings and valve seats to store the pressure. I'm sure there are members here with experience of this model and will point you in the right direction to resolve it. Regards
  2. Awesome design and build quality. Worth the wait. Now enjoy it!
  3. 12 hp K301 No Spark

    Both of the above and if no juice to the coil, then check any safety switches if fitted.

  5. Seat 'n' Saddle Sunday

    Sent you a few links via PM. One of them is -HERE- Mine are over 40 years old and the recent addition of the Backrest is new current manufacture. I only had to drill 2 more holes to fix it on. The link here will also describe the hole centres in the seat base for fixing. Hope this helps .
  6. Seat 'n' Saddle Sunday

    Originally they were Bostrom (UK) in the 70's Craig, and fitted to many Imported WHs assembled in Belgium for European market.- They had an international patent. They were taken over by KAB (UK) and the design is little changed where they are still made as the KAB P2. Yes, the cost has risen a lot over the lsat 5 years or so, but very popular and comfortable. Hi Pete, thanks. I'll send you a PM with clearer pics of my set up, but the tractor is a 1974 C-120 and yours must be the later 'Ironclad' late 70's model. Cerainly easier in open style. Regards. Richard.
  7. Detergent or non detergent in 60's Tecumseh?

    That sounds like a 'Techy Shoot'
  8. Hello Rex, I have the older version of Lift Lever on mine, so not really familiar with later style, but looking at your image, it looks like the weakest point is near the weld point?. Strengthening at the point you mention would be the best way in my view. It may be worth looking out for an old Bike Frame to cut up, where they used quality Reynolds/Chromoly steel thin wall tubing which would be lighter than conventional steel tubing. May just find the right diameter and pulling the handle off to slide down and weld up. Regards
  9. Seat 'n' Saddle Sunday

    Morning to all, To continue the dedicated day topic trend, thought it may be interesting to invite pics of your ride's 'Posterior Perch(es)' . Post them all. It doesn't matter if they are smart, shiny, custom, dusty, crusty, tatty or rusty. Plenty of artistic licence here. Just added a Backrest to mine, but looking for another- Enjoy your Sunday! . Regards
  10. been keeping busy - a different kind of building!

    Superb job Mark. Loved doing Walling and Bricklaying, but I'm slow. That Coping will age pronto in that environment there., If you want to accelerate it, slap an out of date Yoghurt over it.
  11. Row crop front ideas

    I don't think Chris alias 'The Showman' has been on for a while, so I'm sure he will not mind me offering this link to his creation which is well worth perusing- Rowcrop

    Sorry lost link, here it is- PTO
  13. C-175 PTO issue

    Found some further reading for you and the endorsement of the revised bearing numbers is near the bottom from gwest (Garry). Regards
  14. C-175 PTO issue

    Hi , Yes I see now. Your number has changed again according to Partstree, it now reads 109842 !!. I checked all the numbers and they ALL refer to the same dimensions- 3/4" bore x 1.7805" x 0.610". I tend to go for branded Bearings as the prices and quality vary. I'm sure there will be plenty of help and purchase guidance here from Guys local to you. Regards
