Hello everyone been a whole since I Have posted I picked up a miller engine drive welder that had a Tecumseh Oh160 that was sized full of rust and I wasn't sure about it ever running again after some sea foam penetrating oil and a hammer along with a wire brush I got it to run it ran alright till it got hot and started smoking and knocking I hate Tecumseh's so I'm not using that anymore I picked up a low hour magnum 12 of a insulation truck starts and runs great my issure Is that the Tecumseh has a tapered crank I have a spare crankshaft from a k341 however I'm not positive they are the same (took a crank once to have it machined and turned out the length was different does any one have the crankshaft charts for both the Tecumseh and the kohler a for me to take to the machine shop? Or does someone happen to have a tapered crankshaft to fit my magnum In the pictures there is full model/serial numbers
Any help would be apreacited
Thanks
Ty

Kohler Crankshaft Reference manual here. Go to pages 32-37 for K301/M12 cranks.

A GOOD machine shop can turn down your crank easily or even make an adapter for the M12 crank.Take all 3 cranks in with you and see what they say.
