I'd like to restore the original 8hp Kohler K181 eventually, but after doing some peripheral examination, I've got a Shiney new 10hp tecumseh that I think will fit. This thing may get going sooner than I originally thought!
No, I don't have either. I'm not really concerned with running the light at this point. I figure I'll get them going once I've gone through the original K181 and re-installed it. For now, I'll pull start it and skip on having a working headlight, unless someone has a starter and charging setup for a 10hp Tec that they want to sell for cheap.
Other option may be to pick up an electric start predator 420, but for now I'll run what I've got.
