Killer Kohler?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone built your version of Kirk Engine's Killer Kohler engine? A hopped up Kohler engine that is still able to work around the yard or garden?

I'm sure some of us have

especially the pullers in our midst. Personally I wouldn't use his techniques on a working tractor as there is usually enough stock power to do want we want without the time & expense his motors require. Not to mention the requirements of  a uncle, brother or good drinkin buddy who owns a well equipped machine shop!   If I was to build a competitive puller or lawn mower racer is a whole 'nother matter! Take the time to check out his builds tho, well worth the read.  :)

 

Here is another good site for those interested in hopped up Kohlers  https://mwsc.co/ Their website doesn't even begin to touch on what they have for producing Hi Perf. K series!

I used some of his stuff on a K341 that needed a rebuild anyway. The only unnecessary machine work I had to pay for was having the head milled. The porting I did on my own. The K361 cam I traded for. But, I understand what you are saying. Even Kirk was using his as a test bed for the parts he is selling.

Thanks for starting this thread and posting the links.  I'd heard about Kirk's but never took the time to check him out until now.  I'm glad I did, I really like the Bosch coil and the spark plug wire, just looking for an excuse to pick them up soon.

I have purchased several items from David Kirk. He sells good quality stuff and is easy to deal with.     :twocents-02cents:
