i got a matching kohler for my 100 at an auction. it looks pretty decent and spins nice. still has carb, coil, linkage, etc. i want to try to get this running and learn about these engines and use it for a spare for the 100. i want to make some sort of simple motor stand. i've done some minor mechanical stuff but never small engine. besides a gas tank, i need a starter bracket and starter/gen and belt, voltage regulator and ignition. sound like i'm missing anything? i would probably tackle it like this

pull carb and put into cleaner and rebuild or replace
pull head and clean carbon and sand head flat and new gasket
clean and inspect valves
check for wobble in piston and go from there
replace points condensor and plug and coil wire

any comments welcome.

While the head is off, run the piston to BDC, and view the cylinder walls for scoring. Measure for oval if you can.
