Default Cute little unknown Kohler Plant

Only one photo! I can see the nameplate... Asked seller about it, and he said he would add more photos today...

Looks like my 350 watt plant, but could be the 500 watt DC unit. They're the same engine, just 2400 instead of 1800 rpm. Or may be a bigger one. Somewhat molested looking, but fixable I'm sure. Wish it was closer.

Yikes! The spring on the governor/carb. I wonder if he has the original carb with it. Gotta see where it is in Wisconsin. Might have friends in low places. You want it Keith?

Naw, I'm Ok. Go for it!

It has been molested, so a thorough look over would be good. Maybe the usual caveat about running and generating vs cold metal etc...

The spring on the governor lever looks like a spring from a screen door.

Exclamation Re: Cute little unknown Kohler Plant

No air filter, cylinder cooling shroud missing, maybe not right carb either. Stil, not a bad starting point. Have fun trying to get the governor to work with thet spring! For all that's wrong, seems a little pricey to me.
