Was searching the web for other goodies and stumbled upon this page detailing build specs for Kohler engines for garden tractor pulling; thought some of you guys might find it of interest since the topic of Kohler builds surfaces on occasion around here.

The page appears to contain a LOT of great information on Kohler engine builds, along with a good many Kohler engine specs! Worthy enough, I felt it should be stickied here at the top of the Kohler build section anyhow, so I did!

I also have a puller tractor to go with the racer I'm building and I have found a ton of good info for modding my Kohler on that site..

My KOhler in my puller is a VERY stepped on K181 with carb work I learned at Brain Millers site...

Most Kohler valves can be set to 0.010" intake and 0.012-0.014" ex. depending if you are mowing grass or pulling with it.

Unless the valves were ground down on the stems then the overall length of your valves should not have changed.
