Both of these first 2 parts can come from a K181 OR an M8. I have of each that I am working on, and are interchangeable.
1) a carb that is rebuildable and doesn't look like it was dredged out of a lake I have soaked mine 4X and it takes on this look within a day of sitting in the air, I am afraid of it...(and I have rebuilt too many carbs to try and recount) can be a Walbro or original style Kohler hopefully without sloppy throttle shaft
2) a good used crank that doesn't need the crankpin reground undersize; I have a low hour engine that came from a starting unit (like the tow trucks have) with a worthless short tapered crank.
It can be 3/4 or 1" I don't care; just as long as the keyway is good, crankpin is good (and "standard") and NOT tapered.
3) a Starter cup for a pull (recoil) start 12HP Magnum; I have elec start now, and I also have a recoil starter and recoil start shroud "for" this engine. I like redundancy, in case I'm out in the back 40 and my battery dies...
not sure if any of the ones from a K 301 would work or not but I'm guessing it should, (some guidance on that one, would be welcome too)
4) the gov linkage bellcranks etc that bolts to the shroud, and linkage rods to connect to the carb for the 12HP. I robbed what I had from it, to get another engine going.
