Question about Garden

1 Answer

I changed all the fuel lines on a 12.5 kohler and the fuel filter. The motor runs fine for about 20-30 min and then i need to start advancing the choke. I have drained the gas and used carb cleaner. I have taken the fuel line off at the carb and there is gas coming out when i turn the motor over. After i do that it seems the motor will run good for another 20min and then it does this all over again.

I would check your spark plug and then the points on your mower.

Replace fuel filter after cleaning tank thouroughly, to clean tank remove fuel line at carb. Drain all fuel then leave line loose until you flush tank with carb. Cleaner then blow out tank with compressed air. Now install new fuel filter and check your fuel can for trash and water better yet just add fresh fuel.

When you had the fuel filter off, did gas flow freely from the hose? Sounds like maybe the tank has dirt in it blocking the fuel line. Other than that, maybe there is dirt in the carburetor bowl.

Starts but won't stay running


It sounds like you are getting a vapor lock.
Try getting the fuel line and fuel fillter away from the motors heat.This will cause the fuel to boil and give you trouble. Check all your electrical connections for that clicking problem. Make sure everything is clean and tight. Check your spark plug gap.

Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.


Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps
