I saw this in my uncles garage and thought it was a k90 at first so I asked him and he didn't know. It looks like it has a k91 carb though and the I'd plate is missing. Thoughts?

I think it is a K90 that someone put a newer style Carter carb on?

 

It is kind of funny, because today I had to remove an old style Carter carb from a Clinton engine and swap it out with a newer style, because the float had a hole in it. And I was out of that style float. :( (I think the old style looks better IMO)

 

Also, the head looks like it is from a K90? Only way to tell for sure is pull the head and measure the bore.

 

Good luck :thumbs:

The K91 has a 2.375" bore. ....What size is the bore on the K90?

Thanks!

I did not realize the specs are identical for both engines. the only difference seems to be the magnetos?

 

The only other thing I notice is the engine you have has curved fins on the cylinder head, where as the K91 pictures I have seen have straight fins.

Yea I noticed that too. I think it is safe to call it a k90 based on what I've seen.

Any idea what a reasonable price is for this because I just might just buy this from him.

Interesting little Kohler, have the proper round bowl carb for that.

 

Depends on if it runs, condition of the tank and seeing as it has a ''homemade'' muffler, start with $ 30 as is were is. I hope you get it.

I have a round bowl carb as well that I picked up a few years ago. Engine runs and tank is clean.
