Hi everyone..ive picked up a Howard 350H (_Serial No-310 A14700)..last week and a couple of engines (or what is remaining of them) and they have no id plates on ...can anyone tell me what they are ? would it be more practical to source a complete engine or persevere locating the parts that I would need ?
It looks like ive quite a bit of extras to locate to get them up and running .. any info- advice -reccomendations on buying parts etc would be greatly appreciated..

Showman.--No that's the lot they were in the bottom of a old coal house, the guy said that's all he had along with the Howard.

Kohler K141T was the Kohler engine used on the Howard 350 models.

if thats all youve got, i would look for another complete engine, kohler's are very popular in old mowers, ride on tractors and generators, just be careful with the latter as some had a tapered crankshaft

Oh..well..looks like I will have to get a complete working engine and clutch..at what cost!....or..it may be more practical and easier on the pocket to buy another 350 that needs less work..there`s one around 80 miles away..

keep your eyes on that auction site bits do come along suggest you  try to make  one good engine from all three and sell what you don't want A new cone clutch is 80 plus from Standen Eng in March Cambridgeshire That's just the cone !!!  You can get old ones re lined I think.  Housings for the clutch  are around 75  Kohlers do tend to throw the crank through the block , so they are about with some of the bits you need
 
Try Chester Hudson  he has or claims to have  parts too Tillerparts.com
