Troy-Bilt Horse 7 HP Kohler Engine

DocstanMarch 19, 2013

I have an old Horse (1970s) Troy-Bilt with a 7 HP Kohler K161 engine. I accidently broke off the carburetor with my trailer and I am in need of a replacement. Just lost the bid on one on E-Bay. Anyone know where I can find a good used one? Willing to sell tiller as is for B.O. over $300 plus shipping.

You don't necessarily need to use a Kohler engine on it. They had Briggs, and Tecumseh engines that ran fine for many years, with usual care.
Just remember to use an engine that has all of the drilled and tapped holes in the crank-case, where things must be bolted onto a replacement engine. The engine mounting bolt holes should be the same. RJ

Thanks Rusty, I guess my note is confusing. I don't need a replacement motor, only a carburetor for my Kohler engine. The engine was running well before I knocked off the carb. SS

Check your small engine repair shops.
Maybe they have one cannibalized from a blown engine??
