A few days ago when using the Pk to pile up a bunch of branches the Kohler would run a bit ruff and sometimes there would be after fire, this happen last summer and it turned out to be a lose mounting bolt that holds the coil and condenser found it by noticing the sparking at the bolt tightened it an all was good. Well Friday  I got the PK into the shop to change oil and service it first I used the FEL to move some stuff and it started the ruff running more and more, so while changing oil and servicing the tractor I cleaned the fuel filter cleaned the airfilter & pre-filter cleaned ckd the gad and tested the S plug I could see by the soot on the plug that the engine wasn't running lean, checked the plug wire the coil end was a little corroded so installed a new wire core wire started the engine and it ran the same, it was supper time so that evening I was thinking about it and wondered if the condenser was the problem  so Saturday I installed a new condenser and now it runs like new again have run it about 45 minutes no problems.

You maybe know about the issues with the k361 running hot. Be sure the cooling fins are clean.

Hi LilysDad, oh yes I'm aware of that and watch it close, mine is a good running one and I don't want anything to hurt it.
