Hello ODK History Lovers
Kirby engines were a popular choice for lawnmower manufacturers in the 1960s
and 1970s. Made under licence from North American Tecumseh, they would power
Australian-made rotary and reel mowers in vertical and horizontal shaft
configurations.

This article discusses the most popular small horizontal shafts the HK25 and
HK30 engines. Many enthusiasts would know these engines powered the early Victa
Imperials
, Rover Thoroughbreds, and Scott Bonnar Model 45s.

PART TWO - Specification
The small HKs were 125cc with alloy crankcase and cylinder.
The cylinder had a alloy cast iron or sintered iron sleeve.
They were mechanically governed and had a ball bearing on the PTO side.
These were quality engines, many still being used regularly today.
