just got a few moments of connectivity here.  the engine is turnable by hand and it it not that difficult.  It turns pretty easily until it builds up compression, then it is very hard.  sometimes at this point, i turn it the other way.  when the plugs are out of it, it turns easier.  thanks, kpost

With the plugs out it should easily turn around and around due to the lack of compression forces.  If it 'grabs' or gets harder to turn at any point I'd suspect cylinder wall/ piston issues.  So if that is the case, pull the head off and inspect..

I still think it's the compression release, due to valves or otherwise.

Ok, now that i am back i have a few questions for some of you.  WNY tractor tinker, How do i find out if it is a cylinder wall piston issue or not?  How do I go about pulling it apart?  

Also, to toppop52, if it is a compression realease issue, how do i know and what do i do?  

 

At this moment, the tractor kinda runs(as long as i twinkle my ears etc, i can get it started), but i am a little nervous about taking it apart. This is a little confidence issue with me, so please tell me what it is that i should do first.   thanks in advance, kpost

Look at the Kohler engine manuals.
Yours will be close to the command in design (may be some differences)

Verify if your motor has solid or hydraulic lifters, all solids and some hydraulic lifters, require adjustment. The Manual should tell you if and to what specs they are adjusted. Even if they are non adjustable hydraulics, there is some mechanism for compression release that has to function in order for the engine to spin at normal starting speed. Everything you describe sounds like compression load on start up.

I just typed a whole bunch of data into this box and it all went some place.  Short story, I pulled the flywheel and put in a new pin,  It is working very well at this time. It did quit on me, but as of 20 minutes ago, it was starting up without all the otheIr things that i had to do.   I will keep you up to date if anything else goes wierd.  thanks for all the help.. kpost

Glad to hear the key was the issue.
Of all the issues, it was probably the overall easiest to repair.

Now, please let us know how you make out with Sears, getting a refund, and getting the letter of apology from that idiot.

Ironically, it was the Sears fridge repair man that suggested a few things.   He was there to obviously look at the fridge, so i picked his head.  He seemed to know more about it than the other guy.  kpost
