Some may laugh at this post, but I don't have a lot of money.

My 110 was in dads shed for about 15 years not running. The kohler had been rebuilt so many times that it was beyond fixing. Dad said he was going to clean the shed out and haul this to the graveyard on the farm. Thought I had better get it out of his way.


Found a 13hp Honda Clone for under $300.00. Thought I would try one.

Did not take a lot of modification to fit. Had to modify the left hood mount to fit the air breather into. and modify the ground drive pulley to fit closer to the engine, othewise was almost a direct fit. So far engine is doing great. does not knock like the old Kohlers and has alot more power. Kind of looks funny with a blue engine.

Next will be to build an integral hitch(not going to give what they want for one on E-Bay) and paint to make it look like new. probably a winter job. when I get a chance I will take some photos and post.

Nice, I love inexpensive repower options. Do you know the actual brand of the motor you got? BTW Welcome to GT Talk. Great place, great people and the food is ok too.

Brand of the motor is Greyhound bought from Harbor Freight. Got it on sale for $276.00 plus 1yr extended warranty for $50.00. I have about 20 hours on it now and seems to be a great engine for the money.
