I broke off, jammed the pump,they dis assembled it and thru it away. Reassembled the pump and carried on. Probably centering the valve with external spings?

It would center one way, but the lever would then move into the other direction. I could make something work, but why not fix it right?

Absolutely! I was just stating what the previous owner most likely did.

Spring should be here over the weekend. I also ordered a couple seals from Bolens1000. The pulley shaft showed signs of leakage and I wasn't sure if the seal holding the reservoir on would work again. I've started a mock up for the K181 that will drive this. Using part of the frame from my old MTD that bit the dust to mount the motor and pump on. Have to have a battery on there since the Kohler is coil/points ignition, but pull start. It'll be like an over sized two-wheel dolly. That way I can move it around. It may not stay as this set up for long, but I'll have a good test stand for hydraulics.
