Got my parts from Lincoln, governor gear and shaft. So, I started assembly today. Took me three tries to get that two-piece crank in, thankfully it was within spec when done so I didn't have to take it back apart to shim! Got the crank in, lapped valves and ground to spec. I found this old aluminum fixture from a hospital bed oxygen filter mount and squared it up on belt sander that worked really well on valve stem. Progress at last, will finish up soon. Hope it runs well when done! Going to put it on my 653.

Okay engine Guru's, newbie needs some help! Rebuilding older 8 horse and I am new to small engines. I have rebuilt numerous car/truck engines but never a kohler k. I have researched all available videos and really appreciate the small block tutorial by Prondzy. I am at reassembly stage, so my question is, related to timing marks. I have camshaft with centrifical advance which has a groove or line on spacer that engages pawls. does this groove line up with pointed part of casting on inner rim of gear? Also, there is a groove on opposite side of camshaft gear that I believe should align with pointed mark on casting of crankshaft. See attached pictures. Thanks for any help. Just want to be sure!

Hi folks, me and the gal pal were on our way to the wheelhorse motherland ( southbend), to shop for some wedding rings. So we go down little country road see a barn sale, turned around cause I spy a wheelhorse. I ask how much , he said 400$, but someone was suppose to be picking it up. Turns out it came with a sickle bar too. My ears kinda perked up then , cause my dad wants on for his 702. They call the other fella, he passed on it, I offered 300$, we settled at 350$. Tractor runs pretty good, lil smoke when ya goose it, but runs and cuts pretty good. I'm hoping the sickle bar will fit my dad's 702, it's a 50 inch bar. Anywho, here's some pics a serial numbers if anyone has some additional info, or point me in the right direction, would be appreciated, thanks!!!
I don't have pictures yet but I can get some later. I know that will be helpful but I forgot to take them last night.
So here's what I know.
When I bought my c-160 last year it came with a plow. It was delivered to my house and the plow was not mounted on it. I never saw this particular plow on that particular tractor.
The plow I have is 42 inches wide and has a full frame as most of them do.
The angle lever has the Z shape to it, NOT a straight stick of metal, and also bends slightly back towards the operator.
When I am pulling the angle lever towards me to change the angle of the plow it contacts the brake lever.
