Well I have all the clutch/brake/variable speed drive parts back in. I told the wife I was going to hook the spring Back up and was afraid I might knock it off the stands. I told her if she heard a Loud bang followed by lots of adult language to call 911.

Luckily she didn't have to.


Now there's a bit of good news, glad it's back on.

Well I found where the screws from the missing throttle plate went. I removed the head and found marks in the top of the piston. It also appears it was using oil, so I will be rebuilding the motor as well. Also one of the fins on the flywheel has about half of it missing.

I'll post pictures later.

I have the Kohler on my bench at the moment tore down too. I knew it smoked when it was in the 124 we have so I wanted to see if it was getting in from the valves or blowby. I think it may actually be a little of both. The piston can move back and forth in the bore and the top of it looks like someone took a torch to it. I need to take it to my buddies mower shop and check it with the mic's. The one valve stem is wore that I can catch my fingernail on it so I may just do both guides and valves in them as well.

Bore looks good I don't feel any ridge

Bottom of head is bad, but the head is junk anyway.

Missing fin on flywheel, I don't see this as a problem.

I think the missing fin on the flywheel is going to put it out of balance, it turns up to 3600 rpm.

If you're not going to work it hard or run it long, I have had to "Balance" one in the past (we were in a bind & it had to be done) by removing the opposite fin as best you can to the same.

We had a Tech 8 hp that ran for years & years like that on a tiller. As far as I know, it's still running... someone stole it.

That may be why the screws came out of the carb, to much vibration. I may see if my motor builder can balance it.

I have been pricing parts and I think I'll just ring it and grind the valves. 2 valves, piston, pin, rings, and rod will cost over $300, and still need a head, gaskets, tin for the top of the head, and a carb.

I wish that was the case on my Kohler. What I want to do to it is around $600 before I even call the machine shop for their services.

This is the dealer decal on the back of my MF10.

I tried to contact this company in Muskogee, and they are out of business.

Looking good, you are coming along with the restoration. If you don't find a steering wheel this company restores them, I had one done a number of years ago and they did a great job.Minn-Kota Repair - Steering Wheels and Repair

I may buy a wheel from something different and use an acorn nut in the center.
