. There doesn't seem to be much information or parts out there for the K160
My question is what are the main differences between the two?
I have a manual for the K160 engine. ...It has a printing date of October 1953. ....It shows parts & part numbers, but there is no reference to any SPEC numbers.
I also have a March 1971 parts book which is for K141, K161, & K181 engines. ....This has a list of SPEC numbers, which is used to find the Variation # for a given group of parts.
If you provide the SPEC numbers for both your K160 & K161 engines, I can see if I can spot any obvious differences. .....I suspect, but can not prove, that the K160 & K161 are identical, but I'd be willing to bet that most parts will interchange.
If you have any specific questions about part numbers for either engine, I will try to help.
One thing I just noticed in the books is that all K160 engines had a 2-7/8" bore. .....Early K141 & K161 engines had the same 2-7/8" bore, but later K141 & K161 engines had a 2-15/16" bore which was the same bore as all K181 engines.
Stroke length on the K160 is 2-1/2", but I haven't found the stroke length yet for the K141, K161, & K181 engines.
p.s. - did you notice the time of this post?
