clean it sand it clean it again put some body filler on it. call it done
Actually the courage is a pretty good and the inverted sump (soup bowl) is a better design than what other engines have used for decades. The problem was only due to the front 4-5 bolts not being tightened enough.Wow. That other guy is no help. Wtf would sanding it and filling it do? Lol. Anyways, I wouldn't think the block numbers should matter since the first 5 or 6 are the same. If the one online has enough pictures, examine it carefully and compare it to the one you have now to see if anything is noticeably different, besides the crack. I say just buy it if it's cheap enough. But Idk. Maybe try to keep researching it? Honestly for the cost of most small blocks, you might be better off just getting a new engine or find a used engine to fit it. Those Kohler Courage engines are pretty worthless anyways. They have too many problems to count. You're better off with a good Briggs & Stratton Intek single-cylinder or a Briggs & Stratton V-Twin. Or if you want to get another Kohler, get a Kohler Command V-twin, BUT stay away from Kohler Courage engines! Otherwise you may end up with another cracked block. Kawasaki engines are also good too, they are just harder to for an affordable price. Good luck! BTW what machine is this engine off of?
they r still turning here.. this summer they will add more in the northern part of our county.. our's have 183 feet long blades.. other's in our area have 90 foot blades..WHAT'S UP WhIrLy????
How's them windmills doing in your parts?
I went to Chicago last last fall and saw the whole slew of them in Indiana. Then I went to Greenville Oh which is about an hour from me and they have three of them.
They're coming, they're coming, they're coming for me....Nooooo!!
A quote I have often used also and I agree.first off I will say ''''''it takes courage to own a Courage''''.. it is no-brainer to repair a busted engine.. ur gonna pay thro ur nose to repair one.. u can find good engines on Craigs list..in the farm & garden section..
the best engines r the Kohler Commands.. they have HYD lifters in them.. u want to run them with 5w or 10w30 oil in them..
u may b the guy I got it from..A quote I have often used also and I agree.
that may not b true.. they do not put the mills where they migrate.. they also do not put mills any closer than 2 miles from our towns.. lets get back on the subject of this tread..Saw 21 windmill props on a train today. I see they have serrated tips to may sure that the birds are well chopped.
just to finish this, you are lucky. here in ontario canada they can be as close as 1500 ft from a residence.that may not b true.. they do not put the mills where they migrate.. they also do not put mills any closer than 2 miles from our towns.. lets get back on the subject of this tread..
I did a tread on our mills.. I'm about to do an update to it..I was just looking up the ones in Greenville to see if they were two or three because I couldn't remember and it seems Ohio passed a house Bill in Congress just two or three years ago to require them to be I think a little over fifteen hundred feet from Street front or something like that. They say this greatly discourages future wind farms in the state. I guess people didn't want to look at them and were afraid they would take over and be very visual.
I am so anti government and so anti people complaining about Aesthetics and what they think they get to see when they look out their windows and are out in public, and So Pro property ownership rights that I'm certain I wouldn't agree with this. Even though I'm not super big on windmills. If I owned a piece of property and someone wantedto pay me thousands of dollars a month to put one on my land though I would certainly be very Pro windmill.
Don't really need to get back on topic on this thread as we've already covered the whole spectrum of a cracked Kohler courage block.
