912 Running Poorly

Recommended Posts

JimV
My 912 (Kohler engine) runs awful, in fact, won't run much at all without the choke all the way out. Any ideas? I put in fresh gas, checked the plug, but still no better performance. I was trying to blow snow, but it is not that cold here (20's and 30's).

Hi Tim. I just had the same problem with my Kohler. Go to page 3 of this discussion board and look for the post I made named "Kohler starved for fuel." After I pulled the main needle and sprayed the carb out with Gumout the second time, it seems to have solved the problem, although I believe that I am still short on power. With this last snow everything seemed to be OK. I have been told that there is a rebuild kit for that fuel pump thing, I may have to buy one. Next year I am going to blow snow with my 7016, it has a Briggs!

Dollars to do-nuts,the carb. has debris/water or both in it plugging up the main jet.That's why the choke is needed to make it run! Gonna have to clean the carb.AND fuel tank AND fuel line I suspect. dlc

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
