Those motors are actually an easy find and getting parts shouldnt be an issue. They are horizontal shaft ohv single cylinders used on a lot of commercial equipment and generators. I would check around on eBay. I have seen several parts listed for those motors there.

Another way is to get some muriatic acid and wrap the crank journal with a rag and pour the acid on the rag and let it soak. It will slowly eat all the aluminum off the crank. But be sure to do it in a well ventilated area and away from other steel items as it will cause them to rust. Once most of the aluminum is gone you can clean it and then polish it as normal. Lastly mic it to make sure it is still within the required specs. 
6  For Sale / Mower Engines & Parts / New Kohler Command V-twin Racing Heads on: August 21, 2014, 02:00:24 PM
New set of Kohler Command v-twin built racing heads.  Started as NEW 30hp castings, heads have been ported, oversized stainless steel valves with big seats installed, bronze valve guides, dual valve springs with billet retainers and steel locators, machined for billet inserts for roller rockers, combustion chambers welded up and reshaped for higher compression and increased flow, and O-ringed. These were a customers who went with a different setup. All work was done by Lakota Racing, and he had over $900 total invested. I have the receipts and flow specs for the buyer. Again, these heads are brand new and have never been bolted on a motor. They would be a very nice set of heads for a BP or an FXT engine. $700 shipped obo

Yes, all the small block vanguard v-twins (23hp and below) have the same bolt pattern heads and will interchange. Bolt them on and go

Several respected US veteran racers are running the Kohler/ Carter K series carbs on the Kohler command single in the CP class, and they are legal. As long as the carb is made by the same manufacturer as the engine, it is legal to use. If this wasn't true, you wouldn't be able to run the vanguard nikki/tikki v-twin carb on the intek v-twin, or the EC two barrel carbs on the intek or any other engine for that matter. Also, several people run the bigger 17hp Tecumseh plastic bowl carbs on the 8/10hp Tecumseh AP engines, all legal, and the list goes on from there... And as far as intakes and adapters, Kohler command OHV single cylinders don't even have an intake manifold. There is only a 3/4" plastic spacer/insulator between the carb and head. As long as its a Kohler manufactured carb, you are good to go.

I always run both pumps. Run the pulse on the bottom plate to a fitting on the intake, just as you would for the remote pump. You can also cap the bottom plate fitting or use a sealed bottom plate, and then you would use the hole on the carb flange (shutter side) and angle drill the intake flange to where it goes down into the intake port. The factory gaskets and some racing intakes already come pre-drilled for this. And some snowmobile carbs dont have the hole in the carb flange drilled all the way through so you may have to drill it. For general tuning, set the fulcrum arm and pop off pressure for the fuel you are using and engine needs. If using alky, E85, or a highly oxygenated race fuel, you may have to do numerous other mods. When done correctly, they work great with little issue.

The Noram Star clutch would be the best choice. It works great and is easy to change engagement rpm. Don't worry about the factory HP rating on it. It will handle far more without issue.
