Kohler starter problem

Recommended Posts

richp
I have a Tractor with a Kohler K532 twin that has a starter problem. Sometimes the starter gear gets stuck at the end of the starter shaft. The starter shaft spins, but not the gear. If I turn the flywheel by hand, the gear returns and usually works for a while. Any ideas? I have to pull the motor to get starter out.

Rich it may just be dirt binding the starter gear. If you can get to the gear and shaft with the nozzle on a spraycan of cleaner you might be able to flush it out and get by for a few months. I've had good success with this.
