Guys ...you all have been a good source of info in trials and tribulations on here and I appreciate it.
I`ve been tearing up stuff since I was big enough to get in Daddy`s toolbox, I`ve rebuilt just about every kind of engine there are...outboards , auto,motorcycle...even made a livin` building Heavy equip for a while. I think I did one lawnmower way back there before they got too complicated. They are the last thing I like to fool with...mostly because of the governor stuff. I`m gonna have to get into this Kohler a little just to see if it will run soon.
Now a couple of question for now...I`m sure they`ll be more to come.
I pulled the sparkplug and it still feels like it has a compression stroke when you roll it around......I see a panel they call a crankcase breather...is this what is making it feel like it is doing a compression stroke....you can kind of hear it hissing from somewhere, This engine was repainted at least once before I got it and I`ve repainted it myself. Could that paint not allow it to "breathe" It almost looks like it supposed to have a gap between the outer cover and the block ?? Paint got it blocked /sealed up ??
Another thing is I`m finding a 2 -wire in a sleeve coming out from under the shroud around the front flywheel area I`m assuming is the stator...looks like it was suppose to come around the side where the starter is located....and I have single wire that looks like it coming from the same area but pulled to the opposite side of the engine. I`m not finding a good wiring diagram for the tractor and the Kohler has the diagrams with the setup for many different applications. Any help deciphering this or better diagrams than I am finding ...color codes would be nice but...
Thanks ahead !!
