Blown head gasket, loose head bolts, are some possible other reasons. I picked up a 10hp Kohler for free...the owner thought that the rod was broke because it spun over so easy (he bought a 7010 6-speed for the transmission). I took it and opened it up and found loose head, just overhauled with a 10 over piston and std rings sm00. And this engine did spin like it had no piston going up and down. I put the correct rings in it and it is now in my rototiller tractor (710 hydro with hydraulic lift).
