I am in the process of cosmetically restoring a Model 70. I have been told the engine is a K-181 from photos I have posted on the site. The engine ran when I pulled it but I would like it to have a good "going over" before I put it back into a newly painted frame and chassis. Would anyone know of a shop between Trenton NJ, Philadelphia and Harrisburg, or south towards DC with a knowledgeable engine mechanic to look at it top to bottom. Thanks, and Happy Holidays - Joe

Shouldn't be hard to find someone. Here in PA almost every other old time "Jim Billy Bob's Garage" is experienced with working on these engines. Plus it'll give them a chance to use their standard size wrenches and sockets again. 😁
Also, look on FB marketplace. 👍👍

Joseph - I happy to think Kohler K series engines require specialized knowledge. They just aren't the same as any ole single cylinder rebuild. Not sure which travel direction is easier for you (north or south) but Kenny Weimann is in Trumbull, CT and the best Kohler K rebuilder in New England (at least in my opinion). Kenny is an active member on here under the member name Kaweimann . You can use the search feature and send him a message, or you can e-mail him at kenssmallengines@aol.com,

Well.....Trumbull is closer to me than Richmond. I spent a fair amount of time on that territory through my railroad career. I’ll look to catch up with Kenny via the email address provided. Much appreciated.

Merry Christmas! Who are the best Cub Cadet 100 K-241 engine rebuilders in the Midwest? (i.e., closest to MI, IN, IL, IA, NE, MN, WI, CO)

Picked it up today!
Time to finish her up.

I highly recommend mjame. I would contact him directly, to many variables for me to come to on.
