Hi all!

 

I have been restoring a kohler k482 for my bolens 1886. Since I have´nt made the disassembly myself I have some questions.

In the Engine block there is a threaded hole pointing towards the inner bearing of the camshaft. What is supposed to be mounted there. Is it some kind of adjustment for the oil pressure or what, see attached Picture where I have just mounted a screw for now.

 

Can anyone also show a detailed picture of how the linkage between carburator and governor is supposed to look like.. I can´t get my head around the arrangment ? one spring, two springs ??

 

regards

 

Jörgen

 

P.S Sorry about the crappy Pictures. I hope you understand anyway.

That is were a oil pressure switch or sending unit goes. The oil pressure adjustment is on the bottom of the block just above the oil pan on the the same side toward the flywheel.
