I have an older poulan pro 18 hp ohv.kohler engine. Tried adjusting throttle linkage to get more rpm. the throttle /carburator linkage plate has adjustment also. In what order do you start adustments


The Kohler is design for 3600 Max rpm with it developing peak torque at 2200 rpm 42.5 N·m (31.4 ft. lb.)

If your trying to go above the 3600 rpm then your only risking damaging the engine plus causing unnessary wear and tear on it.

this sounds as if you have a bad cable/connection or starter relay has some dammaged contacts to be responsible for voltage drop
sometimes the wire comes loose from back of connector

The easiest thing for you to do is look at another mower that has a single cylinder Briggs at how the linkage is set up. They will all be the same linkage from 12 hp- 20 hp.

Hard to shifet my poulan pro and wont go into reverse


Try loosening the belt tension to the transmission a little bit. Some of these are just stiff and you have to slip the clutch a little to rock them into gear.
