I bought a Kohler Magnum 18 last week for $150 and gave the guy $50 to deliver it,he said it ran good but the carb needed work because of water in the bowl...so I took a chance on it.He was right,the carb was trashed so I went on a hunt for a new one,well yesterday I met a man who races GTs and his engine of choice is Kohler Magnums and he had a whole box of carb parts and told me to pick and choose all the parts I needed to put together a carb and it would be $40(what a deal right?)so I did what he said and got home and installed the carb(thinking the worst)hit the switch and it fired up and ran so sweet I almost cried..I cant wait to get this engine on my Dig-it 188T(ingersoll 6018 )(that I just got as well,no engine)some times things go so well...but not often when you are piecing discontinued stuff together!Now off to find a single port muffler!

You can't beat a Magnum.  Its all the good of the K-series with electric ignition.  :rocker2:
