This is an engine I just put together two weeks ago. Was having a lot of trouble with not having any power and over heating badly. 14 hp kohler. So tonite found out the points had closed from the setting I had them at. Reset them to proper setting, adjust the carb and went and cut some grass. Wow did it ever work better. Push on the hydro and the power would set you back in the seat. I figured, great its fixed, then all of a sudden I saw smoke from the front of the engine, so got off and oil every where. First thought was front oil seal, then broken block, then realized it was gushing out and shut of engine. Drain plug fell out. Why do these things happen to me. Noel
Needed to change the break in oil any way, I guess, and wont have to cut the grass there for awhile. Hot oil! Good thing no environment people around!!
