Kohler running good(updated)

Recommended Posts

Well guys I am having a little trouble with the 12hp Kohler in my 7112. First off there is a good amount of exhaust coming out from the breather at all times. Second when the engine warms up it lacks for power. I have changed the carburetor to rule that out as a power problem. Any and all help is welcome. Thanks guys.

No she starts very easy, and yes I am still running points. At times under a load she pop and spits and sputters and I have to turn the mower deck off and start over when she gets up to rpm's.

I agree with the compression diagnosis. The rings would be a fair start point, possibly can avoid valves sometimes. Check for breather proper function also(not a cause but can contribute to symptoms).

Well I changed the coil, condenser, and points last night and the old 7112 came back to life with plenty of power and no spitting and sputtering. She runs like a top now. Thanks for all of your help guys.
