so my uncle called me up & said he has 5engines & wants me 2 come get them. they range from 8-12hp B&S. my uncle travels raceing & building custom race cars as he used 2 be a fabricator for the late Alan Kuwicki. long story short, he needed room for new projects & doesnt really play w/ GT's anymore. the last engine he has is a 2cyl Wiss. all engines wer on a pallet & plastic wrapped bc he's very anal...lol, and all run flawlessly. the cool part....we're gonna replace the blown horizontal shaft 11hp kohler on my Case 222 w/ the 2cyl Wiss & finish w/ a tall stack w/ a flapper! pics will be posted when finished!!

You have a 12 hp Kohler, not 11 hp, those don't exist lol.

Very cool on the repower plan, hope it goes well.

Ha I would not call a Race Car Fabricator Anal. I would say Meticulous (thats a really good deal for you). Funny you should mention Alan Kuwiki there is a story on Nascar.com right now about winning his championship on an incredibly low budget and beatig the odds.

Hey plow boy, I probably know your uncle, as many of my friends are race car drivers, and my best friend is also a race car chasis fabricator. Its cool to get stuff for free, and better yet, the free stuff works. Usually my uncles give me stuff for free when its broken and they cant fix it. Enjoy your project and post up pics! We love pics!!!

I had a feeling you knew better and forgot, so I figured a quick reminder was in order. I had my doubts that you had a very rare 11 HP Case 222 LOL.

I never went to the Prom, not my style. I don't point out a mistake unless it is good for a laugh or two, and appropriate. That and I will know that the corrected will laugh too lol. I appreciate your service in Iraq, and hope you can point out all of my mistakes (Hint: I am a bad speller LOL).
