It responds pretty good to the foot throttle and yes I am using the governor. I'll get some pictures at the end of the week.

Looks good. I like the cast iron pulleys in most places, you know they won't break lol. How fast does she go?

I know my head gasket is going bad any is possibly the issue, but does anybody else's wheelhorse (or k181 kohler) run a little rough in the cold? Like -6 F

When I plowed with my C-125 with a 12hp K301 I would change to 5w-30 oil in the winter so it would turn over easier and it ran a little smoother. My head gasket was bad in my 8hp in my C-81 too. When I pulled the head off I noticed that my piston had some wiggle room in the bore and I could tilt it a little back and forth, so I pulled the motor out and it's at the machine shop now.

I've been busy lately and forgot to post about the new front tires and lights I got, so here it is. Mounted the new tires on the stock rims, had to cut one of the original tires off with an angle grinder since I couldn't get the bead off.

Long time no see.  Nice to see an update. New front tires look good.
