Swapped engines on one of my open side LGT Fords today.....Took off a 12 hp (rod knock) and replaced it with a 10 hp........I did not see balance gears in either one of them......Question is, did some of the Kohlers come without these balance gears?

I had a 12hp with them and pulled them out since the bearings were toasted. I ran that engine and it wasn't any rougher that I could tell just still burnt oil bad after a partial rebuild. The newer 12hp Kohler I found doesn't have them at all but does have the bosses in the block for them
