Power King V-twin Kohler.....Bought owner's,  Parts, and even the service manual for this engine I want to rebuild. Even got some diff parts for it and layed out by it. Layed the manuals real close by also and went out after a few days and NOT ONE thing was fixed on the engine! What gives?  I guess manuals don't really work, just a way to sell them I guess??  :( :deadhorse:

Might help if you leave a light on in the shop so the engine can see the manual  :poke:

There's your problem!  you got a manual...

 

What you need is an automatic.   Automatically fixes itself.

Manuals are like instructions. They are something men are supposed to ignore.

They are supposed to stay on the shelf. Until we can't put it back together...
