Just ordered almost 200$ worth of parts.

Complete gasket set for my K321 junker to be put back together and to seal up my Magnum 14, oil pan gaskets for my K241 and my brother's CC 1250, 2 head gaskets for my M18, a breather cover gasket for my brother's 1250, a tire tube to mount my other ag tire, and batteries for my headlamp.

 

Also found out what dealers my 317 and 140 came from, Neuhauses, over 4 hours away...

Got my carb rebuilt. Took my mini vice-grips and a 3-48 tap and cleaned my throttle shaft threads, then drilled and tapped the choke shaft. Everything went swimmingly, except for a crooked choke shaft hole, but that doesn't worry me. I might, however, take the screws back out and put threadlocker on them to prevent the motor from ingesting the screws.
 
After that, decided to mount my other ag tire. After marking the rim, fighting the tire on, getting the bottom bead on and the tube in, then getting the top bead back on, I found out that a staple somehow ended up in the box the tube shipped in, and stabbed a hole in the tube. Had to fight the tire BACK off, and pulled the tube so my pap can patch it.

Motor back together and sat in the frame. Gotta get it bolted down and all the control stuff hooked up, then oil, fuel, and transmission fluid and we'll be set to run...

 

Used our new torque wrench to torque the oil pan bolts down, it was amazing actually feeling a "click click!", unlike our other torque wrench which is over 90+ foot pounds off (set it to 10 ft/lbs, it sets to over 100).

Larry is ready.
 
Engine bolted in, muffler pipe cut and muffler on, air cleaner on, electrical reworked, cables hooked up, oil and ATF in, and driveshaft bolted up. Also hooked up my headlight (yes, headlight, as in one)
 
Now to pull the battery tray and fix the loose steering box and throw my ag tire together and put the set on before I run him.

So, I had a whole fiasco over the weekend. Pulled the air cleaner to drain the gas out of the carb, pulled the bowl off the carb, the fuel I pulled out was brown. Probably why I had no fire. Rerouted fuel line, spilled gas everywhere (fuel tank had a bubble escape which shot fuel all out of the funnel, which fills the entire fuel filler hole), and then I decided to roll her outside. After some wiring diagnoses, found out my main power wire for the key switch fell off. Put it back on, turned the key, and well, she smokes. Doesn't run, but there's at least something. Sometimes comes out of the muffler, but most of the time, it comes out of the carb. Guessing I'm gonna have to do some valve work?

Valves or try resetting the points. They may be off just a tad keeping it from firing off.

How? Where's the timing mark? Note, this is a 210 engine, not the original 140 engine.

It's a Kohler, right? It shows that in the Service Manual.

Yep, timing marks are on the flywheel and can be visible through a sight hole in the blower shroud.

Might not be my place to say, but you might try responding positively when people try and give you advice. Especially since you flat out asked for it..

I didn't see any sight marks. Are they those holes on the bottom of the shroud? If so, then that'll be fun trying to set the points. 

 

Also- What? I responded with a genuine question of how to set the timing. I know AS engines have the timing set different than the AQS engines, so that's why I was wondering.

Isn't the only difference between an AS and an AQS engine the muffler that came on it?

Nope. Only things that are shared are carb, block, and bearing plate. Shrouding is all different, muffler is different, etc.

I imagine the shrouds only depend on application, the key thing here is one engine is a "Quiet Model" and one is not.

Ignition timing is not affected by this, so you should be fine.

Even if they did I'm keeping the AQS shrouds on the motor to make it obvious it's been engine swapped, mainly to make Larry unique. Also why he's H2 swapped instead of H3.

Uniqueness, that's my plan...
