History
When I was in High School auto shop, our instructor decided to clean out the storage shed of stuff he never figured would be used in our school. We were throwing out piles of brake rotors when he pulled out a 2 cylinder opposed Kohler out of a Lehman skid loader. He asked me if I wanted it because he knew I was into old stuff and I said yes. A couple months later I asked my boss about an old garden tractor siting out behind the shop. He said it was his and he planned to pull the engine out to use in one of his Lehmans. I told him I had a running engine (I'd gotten it running with Dads help) engine for one and asked if he'd trade. He said yes and I ended up with this thing and started pulling with it 3 years later.
