Engine has been run 2 hrs. on the stand. Ready to put on the shelf. Going to rebuild a Genuine Kohler carb. This China one is almost as bad as a Genuine Tecky carb! :tools-hammer:

 

So to recap. Engine wouldn't run when I got it because of the points lobe being 180 degrees off.  Repairs as follows:

 

2 piece cam replace with one piece cam

Cracked main bearing boss welded

Broken governor shaft replaced

Seized governor gear replaced

Valves and seats ground

Connecting rod turned around so oil hole is on the correct side.

Feels good to have "Rescued" a K181!

Excellent.  

 

I'd rather have a rescued good ole heavy metal engine every time.

Can’t beat the real deal. 
China has never gotten the reverse engineering 100% with the carbs. 
Although, They did and outstanding job releasing COVID into the world.
