Is there any collector value in a straight block KE188 engine on a MM-UTS? Most U's I have seen have a two head configuration. I found a UTS in a shed with the KE188 engine and an HC head.

I was just curious since I don't see the straight block around.

Thanks.

If it's old enough to need a good pair of crown fenders, I got em. Other than paint they're probably as close to perfect as you can find.

I have four of them, as said they are just the early ones.

How are they for horsepower? Do they make a good pulling tractor?

I have one that really barks and seems to have good power. It's the way I bought it, don't know if anything special has been done.

They make a good antique as there arent a lot of them around.
