I'm sure there are people here who can help you. Describe the problems you are having and some one will probably have a cure for them.

They like to blow out right where the push rods run next to the cylinders, and thus making excess crank case preassure forcing oil into the carb/airfilter.

that is what I will look into 1st, now I just need to find a parts manual for the motor and give it a go.

If you have an air leak down tester it is a good tool for testing for a head gasket or bad rings. You can get a manual at the Kohler site.

Just had the same problem on a Briggs. Sure enough, blown head gasket.
