After loosing the original Tecumseh engine in my MF8 2 years ago and replacing with a HF clone engine. I have been wanting to find a Kohler 8 hp to put in the MF8. Last Friday I found one on CL $100 80 miles away that said it ran but only at idle, with the add being 11 days old I figured it was sold and the add not pulled yet. When I called it was still for sale and on Sat I drove up and picked up the engine. Yesterday I was seeing if I could get the rpms up and after a couple of adjustments I could get the rpms up. I checked the inside of the tank and it was rusty, so off came the tank (will use the one on the tractor anyway) and pulled the carb apart. The carb was full of crud and a new kit will be going in this weekend. The other great part was the crankshaft is 1" which is what the org Tecumseh had in it so I can reuse the 2 groove pulley. I know you all want pictures, I took some but only the serial number of the engine and carb not engine itself. :wallbanging: Plan is to have it installed and running this weekend, along with some more pictures.
