I surprised myself when I started it. It fired right up on the first pull, No starting fluid, just straight from the gas tank to the carb.

Glad to see it running again, sounds well. Ive just got mine running after fitting a large bore piston. Like yours mine makes that occasional 'pop' when running at high revs, ive tried all sorts of carb adjustment and cant stop it. Do you know what it is?

Thanks,
James

Well I think what you are hearing are the hit and miss engines that were all around me. There were 3 running just a few feet from my tractor. The kohler runs perfectly.

As for yours it sounds like a coil issue. Did you replace any of the ignition system? I have a john deere 112 with a k301 that would pop and crack under load and high rpm. Once I replaced the coil it ran perfectly again.

edit- it really sounds to me like the early signs of a coil going bad, does it get worse as the engine gets hot or does it stay they same?

Thanks. I think for a little while longer I will leave it the original petina. Once I paint it it's not original and for some reason I just like the original look for this tractor. Only time will tell lol

A video would help. It's hard to diagnose a engine problem without hearing it first hand lol.
I hope you get it taken care of!

Another little update.

I am still debating on whether or not I should repaint the tractor right now. I am really enjoying the natural look right now so I guess until that wears off I will leave it alone. The engine is still running strong and so there have been many nightly cruises.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement gas cap that fits and looks original? I have one of an old gas can but it doesn't fit right and leaks gas if I fill the tank to full. The original was unusable.

I havent found a suitable replacement. I think they may have been also used on some Clinton engines as well....
