Thumbs up New Welder, Almost (Ranger 8)

I recieved the Ranger 8 (engine broke) from Walker today.Freight from Arizona is terrible but I have a left over JD lawnmower with the same engine in it and I think I can put them together and have a portable. Walker cut me a good deal and waited while the freight guy I know came from Europe but it worked out well.
Thank you Walker.

Here's how I fixed my BobCat that had a busted Onan. Took about $300 for engine and couplers. 25 HP Kohler command.

I have the same engine in a John Deere tractor and I could use it, but if I can hook up a Honda like you have that is what it will get. My Freight guy is my Uncle who ownes a small factory making wire rollers and pay out wheels. They do a lot of shipping and have the knowhow to do it. He was in Europe for a vacation, they go somewhere every year.

I have a couple more jobs ahead of this so I have some time to look around but if anyone sees a kit to change to Honda, drop a line, thanks.

Default Ranger 8

Has anyone removed the engine from a Ranger. I have it ready to come out but cannot get the plastic fan off. I removed an 6" bolt there but I can't get the fan off.
