When you have so many forums, you're never sure quite where to post certain things. I think I'm ok here but we seem to be not quite as anal as some other places. Anyway, here's my situation. This spring I bought a brand new kohler k321 service engine to put in my Power King with FEL
. It was one of two they had left so I was fortunate to get it. Once installed it fired right up with no adjustments and I've been running it like that ever since. It's now through it's 5 hour break in period so I will change oil and whatever else needs done as soon as possible. The thing runs great except for one thing. If I lift the FEL
or the back blade OR I let the clutch out to move (this thing is heavy) the engine acts as if it wants to quit. Usually it picks right back up and everything's cool until the next time. Sometimes it will quit unless I choke it real quick. Anything that puts the engine under load. Now the carburators that come on these do not have the adjustments that the old carbs do. I think I have an idle and a fuel adjustment only. I played around with the fuel adjustment last night and that really didn't seem to do anything. As I see it, there can be one of two problems here. Either it is a carburator problem and I just need to have some patience and get it tuned in or it's a governer adjustment. Could this just be a break in thing that will eventually go away?
