Very nice collection my wife would kill me but I'm sure on the farm I can hide them places haha. Yeah the pump is working. Is the fuel shut off fixable cause it's leaking out of there

Not really. Easier to buy a new one. Or take an elbow off an old carb and use that, and put a in line valve in

Easy way to see what's going on is get a spray bottle and shot some gas done the carb with the throttle 1/3 open. IF it fires it's a gas issue. If nothing it's a spark issue. Unless you have a stuck valve or something serious.

Hey Dayton what if she fires and actually stays running even though u only sprayed alittle. It's like it was enough to get the fuel flowing. It stayed running until I shut the key off. Would that be a bad fuel pump?

A lot of Kohler motors are gravity fed fuel system. Check the float level in the carb. Another suggestion would be the top fuel adjustment screw. Before removing it count the turns to screw it all the way in then remove it & clean all the ports on it. Reinstall it carefully to protect the tip. Screw it all the way in then back it out the number of turns. The common adjustment for this is 1 1/2 to 2 turns.

My kohler has a fuel pump it actually has a manual primer on it too. The float doesn't appear to be stuck. I can check the top screw though

The fuel pump is a mechanical pump. If it runs when primed I would think you need to check your choke and make sure it closes all the way

Your right the choke cable was moving but the screw holding it down was loose so the choke was never actually opening and closing. Is there anyway to adjust the governor everything for the throttle is working it's just no matter what the engine wants to run at full rpm

That I am not good with. There is a manual for the kohler you can download. It's a simple process from my understanding but I have not had to have done it yet.

I'll mess with it more when I get home. IT could just be the idle screw on the carb is not set right? And Noone told me these tires are expensive haha
