Question about Ford Tractor 8n Front Emblem

1 Answer

Have Exmark 52 LazerZ with Kohler ch25 engine. Engine stalled in heavy grass. Tried to re-start; engine turned over several times at lower RPM but stalled almost immediatly (PTO switch disengaged & deck lifetd out of the grass), then... nothing. No response to ignition switch, no clicking nothing. Checked starter by applying power directly to it. Starter cranks but engine does not start. Checked fuses; 2 X 20amp fuses located behind to ignition switch. One bad, partially melted. Replaced this, tried to start engine & new fuse blew immediatly. The wiring connector to the ignition switch is badly corroded. I cleaned this & replaced the switch; did not solve the problem. Had an earlier problem starting - similar symptoms. Noted no or little fuel in the fuel filter but it started eventually after several tries. Engine started fine for 5 or 6 weeks, now this.

Try looking for a broken wire or a wireing harness shorted to ground, the fuse blowing in the harness will lead you to it if you are able to see where the wire goes. you have a short somewhere may be the fuel pump, too

You might check with a Harbor Freight store either locally or on the web. They have several engine sizes available (with overhead valves) that are Chinese made, but the prices are certainly reasonable. You may have to do some adapting to get one to work. Hope this helps!

Hello, I need to know how to adjust engine timing for Kohler Command, 22hp engine, manufactered in 2007 on a Cub Cadet 2544 Heavy Duty tractor. Thanx, Rick

If you have what i think you have. The only timing adjustment as such would be in the coil to magnet air gas. Which is usually around .125 thou.

The other timing is done internally, when you line up the marks on the cam gear with the marks on the crank gear. good luck and be careful
