    This was posted a while back under a Polaris Pole thread. Gets painful to watch after a while but it's worse when you're actually do'n it yourself.

    After moving everything in  the sheds I’ve found 2 Kohler K91 engines ,  by the looks of them they haven’t run for a while.
    The green one I bought from Paul last year and the black one I’ve had years and can’t remember where it  came from.
    The green one is missing the recoil starter and spinning it with the drill i found it had no spark, removed the points and cleaned and regapped and tried again, i did manage to get it to fire a couple of times but that’s all.
    I’m going to strip the carb and put it in the altrasonic cleaner.
    The black one was much the same although I did get it to run briefly so that one’s  carb is going in the cleaner’
    While i was digging the cleaner out i found an Aspera engine cover with the same recoil starter but no cup so if anyone has one I’m looking.

    Had another look at the rim today as to patching it up but it’s like tissue paper round the outer edge so i came up with an idea that was only going to cost some labour...
    Starting with a good rim, cut it in half and then cut the rusty one in half weld the two good half’s together.

    Went and collected 8 wheels and 2 seats from the sand blasters this  morning, they also sprayed them with 2k primer.
    They were in a poor shape and very rusty so I’m very pleased with them and saved me a lot of work.

    The second tool tray is now welded, painted and fitted and I’ve modified the 4 front spindles and fitted them so all the front axles and steering is finished.
    Next job on the list is to sort out 2 engines.
