Nice job!

Jack asked me to see if I could find out through my Bush Hog contacts whether a Kohler was ever put in any of the bush hog models at the factory. My contact said he was not aware of one, but if there was one, he was sure it would have been put in one of the HD models.
It looks like it belongs there!


Scott, remember us looking at that one photo thinking it was a Kohler K because of the starter?   Well, the other day I looked at that pic real close....and it's a later model Briggs with ring gear starter.

Yea it seems to fit well,I really wanted to put a 14 or 16 hp but all the ones I found were 1 inch shafts and I really didn't want to change the u-joint. Just need to get to the hydro now, it seems to lock up when pulling. Even when you back off it acts like it can't pull and try's to stall the engine out. I'm going to try cleaning the pickup screen and see if it helps. 48willys
