kohler opposed twin vertical with horizontal mounts
« on: August 16, 2007, 08:49:45 AM »
can you flip an opposed from vertical to horizontal if it has the mounts for it? the engine is a 20hp opposed flathead with an oil filter. i think i have to change the oil pan because of the way the oil filter is mounted just not sure thanks, Robert

If you build it, it should fly.

Flathead puller has done it. With the being a pressurized oiling system (guessing from the oil filter) im not sure theres a whole lot you have to do other than make sure the sump is getting oil. Flathead will know better.

..."I used that motto to keep going, keep pushing, keep digging to
find a way around, or through to find a hole, some kind of break that
would allow some space. Once something broke thru, I could be there to
take advantage. Then I would finish 7th instead of 10th." - Dubba G
