Question about Kohler OHC 16, 18 HP Service Manual TP-2480
My mower was sitting at idle and then stopped. Since then, I can't start it again however if I turn the key to "Start" and hold it, the motor runs and as soon as I let the key go the motor dies.

If the engine is running rough then this could mean that you have weak spark or valve adjustment. When an engine runs rough it will not burn all the fuel, which will create excess fuel in the air cleaner housing. Also, make sure the the float is closing in the carberator.

Sometimes there is rust on the crankshaft and the magneto can not pick up the signal. Leave the sensor on the engine, try cleaning the rust off the crank damper and then run a clean rag between the sensor and crank. The gap varies but a old fashion matchbook seems to work in case the sensor is loose. Good Luck

The woodruff / flywheel key is likely partially sheared. Pull off the air housing, remove the starting clutch, to get to where you can see the flywheel key. I bet you will find that the key has distorted. Easily replaced once flywheel is pulled. Make sure to use the correct key when replacing it.
