Default Kohler 1A21 on eBay

This one is clearly going to need some work, with “motor is stuck”, but appears to be all there except for the hand crank.

Might be a good deal for someone. I would want it, but fortunately? it’s far away. Really can’t take on any more for now.

Yup, nice looking parts machine. Very nice radiator tank top from the pics. Not sure I’ve ever seen one without dents. Mag looks nice too. There is another one ebay as well. Search Kohler generator.

If someone were to restore it, the starter crank would be the biggest problem.. The nose bearing and crank are unobtanium unfortunately, unless you have a donor engine

I display mine without a crank. It over hung the side of the trailer and I was worried it would get bumped and broken. I made a 3D printed part to plug the hole. I also have a 3D printed model of the bearing housing that could be used for display or as a model for a casting.

If any one needs either one, let me know.

BTW if it was closer I would grab it.

Yeah, that other one’s been in my watch list too. Too much money for a non-runner though.

No parts machines. They don’t make these anymore, so we must preserve what’s left by making parts. At least ideally. I have one that really is a mess due to internal rust. Would have to make a lot of parts. But making a crank handle should be straight forward.
