Hard Starting Kohlers
Posted December 16, 2010 - 08:27 PM
Does anyone have any tips on starting your Kohler in the winter? My K341 is very stuborn in the cold months of winter. I had couple guys tell me that they put a petcock in the head to get the piston to move easier...not sure about drilling a hole in the head. Does anyone know if there is a high torque started availible??

As for your engine, Does anyone know if the k341 has a spark advance or compression release for starting? If so, it may not be functioning correctly.

Sorry steve, just noticed in old manual that early Ks had auto spark advance, but could not find ser, or spec no. break. Could still be spring broke or off. But first, I would try the synthetic oil, block heater thing.
