Kohler fuel pump

Not really stationary, though it is at the moment!, but please does anyone
have any ideas where I can get a petrol pump for a 12hp Kohler K301 engine
as fitted to Wheelhorse tractors? It's a small mechanical pump just like
the ones 60's cars used to use. Both the valves are seized in the existing
pump & look to be pressed in so not serviceable without destruction. I
suppose I could mill out the housing to take different new valves, but
again would welcome a source for these?

The pump is expensive, as are all Kohler parts, about $75.00 cdn last time I bought one, but I have picked up complete dead engines at farm auctions for around $5.00, often there's a good fuel pump, ignition coil, usable points, carburetor, starter, regulator and behind the flywheel alternator. A good scrap find can save you $400-500 in parts. A new starter drive once cost me @$150 cdn., and that's what got me started picking up the parts engines.
The Kohlers were used in many makes of riding lawnmowers including John Deere. Lots in lighting plants, construction gas power tools, I had a 371 Bobcat skid steer loader with one. When I sold, it the buyer gladly took all my spares. Spud

Yes- so I'd noticed ! This is about £60 plus 17.5% VAT & carriage, so it makes trying to salvage the old one worth while. The tractor is runningwith a Mini SU pump on it at present, but I'd like to keep it original if possible. I'll certainly keep my eyes peeled for Kohler engines, specially since I seem to have caught a Wheelhorse bug, though the wife is urging me to sell one, she hasn't noticed the potential offered by a new 28 foot square shed that just needs a course of blocks or two, & roofing can offer. Imagine that - a completely empty shed!!!

Hi this the first try out with a news reader so I hope it works I think you will be able to get all the Kohler spares you want at a good garden machinery shop like P A Turney Ltd if you are in Oxfordshire as they used to be agents and I think still are for Kohler
