Since nobody wanted me to cut up the K181, I brought this into the garage so I could take it apart and make it into a cut away. I will go back out soon and start taking it apart.

It would have been rough seeing that K Series Kohler be cut apart.

Actually I would prefer a tecumseh be cut than any other motor. If I had a Tecumseh engine I would donate it to the cause but I don't.

I have it all taken apart, expect one valve; one valve had the figure 8, which I was able to get out by just lifting the spring and pushing on it a little. The other one I am going to need a spring compressor to get out.

 

Here is the inside, all taken apart.

Since the back comes off, I only have to make one small hole in the side, to see to see the tappets being pushed up and down.

I'm pretty sure its illegal in all 50 States to cut up a Wisconsin......

Last time I checked you'll get 25 years in prison if your caught.....

I realized that I need the rear cover, to hold the governor, and to keep the crank and cam from just falling out. I cut out a corner of the rear cover.

I used a grinder to cut it all, worked pretty well! I will clean up the sharp corners with my rotary tool.

Ryan, Many, many moons ago, (like 40 plus years worth) there was a seventh grade kid faced with doing a project for the school science fair. Not only was a presentation necessary but it required visual aids to go with it. This was the visual aid the kid made. It's gotten worse for wear over the years. It used to be that the ignition would still produce a spark and had both valves. It wasn't the prettiest thing but it got the job done and earned him an "excellent" award at the local and district levels. It was done with a hand hacksaw and a hand sabre saw with a metal cutting blade.

They had invented the Internal Combustion Engine back then?
EDIT: Now I understand... the reason you got the "excellent" was; this was a design prototype.

(ducking now)

Looks Good Doug, I see some similarities... Great minds think alike.
