Just rescued a 1975 C-100 from the scrapyard, the wife doesn't know yet but I'm sure she will be very supportive with another project :lol: It came with the deck and tiller attachment. Does have the 12hp Kohler motor but the down side it is not working. I think it might have thrown a rod. Any ideas suggestions on a detailed link for a rebuild or should i look for a replacement motor. If anybody has additional good to have information such as manuals or other helpful info would be much appreciated

You can download a Kohler service manual here: http://www.kohlerengines.com/manuals/landing.htm

There are several places to get parts if you don't have a Wheel Horse/Kohler dealer near you, here are a couple: http://www.psep.biz/ https://www.kohler-engine-parts.opeengines.com/

The C-100 should have a 10HP engine, so either it's a C-120 or you have a replacement engine.

Before investing in too many parts, it would be a good idea to check the engine over very carefully, inside and out, if it did indeed break a rod. The block could be cracked, the cam is likely to be broken, etc. making repairs expensive to almost impossible.

Replacement engines can be had at a variety of places including: http://www.smallenginewarehouse.com/ and http://tewarehouse.com/

Dale, thanks for this info. I found an "old school" mechanic that is going to take a look at the motor.
