Need info on Kohler K361 QS OHV engine -- 18 hp, 1 cyl, horizontal shaft

Does anyone know where I can get a parts drawing?

From what I've read on the internet, these engines (about 30 years old) were made for leaded gas and tend to run hot with unleaded. I think mine has burned or warped the exhaust valve, and I want to get it running well again. Anybody know anything about this? Are stellite valves available as an upgrade? How much of a job is it to grind the valves?

This one is on an old Economy PowerKing tractor, which is kind of a collector's item by now. I like it!

I believe your engine is 35 years old as that is when unleaded gas became mandatory(1974).
Here is a service link:

The engine repair manual is great! Thanks!

I still could not find an illustrated parts list, for ordering parts. Any suggestions on where one of those is posted?
