I'm in the process to start the restoration of my recently acquired MF16. The engine (Kohler K341) is in a box and was taken apart by the previous owner. I saw on different posts that some people leave the balancing gears out when rebuilding those engines. As anyone done so or is it worth while to go through the trouble of leaving them in and adjust timing?
Also, is there a way to check the governor shaft to see if it's leaking oil or should I just go ahead and replace it?
Any other tips would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help
