Engines don't "pull" fuel to carb , it either gravity flows (tank over top carb) there or its pumped there , I do believe the kohler engines from 8 hp thru 25 hp use a vacuum activated fuel pump (three hoses on it) these do go bad over time and need replaced , also there are fuel filters on all these engines that need to be replaced seasonally they are not cleanable there disposable

    I disassembled the carburetor and found the fuel reservoir over floated. The to floats were obviously up and closing gasoline from getting in carburetor. I submerged it in carburetor cleaner for two hours and clean nozzle orifices. Assembled and installed back. Now it runs smooth and a lot better.

My kolher engine on my rototiller will not start.I can put a little bit of gas where the spark plug goes and it will start for a few seconds but won't keep it major?

No what the problem may be is the gas tank filter may be stopped up or the carburetor has varnished gasoline in it? In the future use an additive called stabil can be found at most auto parts stores or Walmart has it in automotive around the gasoline additives! It gasoline from varnishing and becoming gel like in the winter when you store your mowers weedeaters and tillers! Try getting gasoline to be pulled up by making sure gas flows from fuel lines first! If you don't have a primer button then you more than likely have a choke on the carb? Close the choke you can use ether sparingly to ease in pulling the rope frequently or a rag soaked with a little gas will allow vapors to get sucked in the carb assisting the engine to start

My welder revs up but wont put out full power

We need a better description of what is happening. I see many engine driven welders that when loaded up heavily the engine rpm drops because of needing a tune up or complete engine overhaul. Since the engine can't run at designed r.p.m. the welder won't put out "full power" With a better description of problem, Such as engine is not slowing down but will only weld at 100 amps experts here could help you better.

Low voltage at recepticials

If the front DOES NOT say "chopper technology", then the fine control knob MUST be turned all the way up for full aux power. Low engine RPM can also cause this issue. If your meter can read frequency, it should read a little above 60 Hz at full speed with no load.

This is paul at Paul's Outdoor Power Equipment. I have a lincoln ranger 8 with a bad Onan engine. Is there a Kohler spec engine I can usne to replace my engine with.

Hi Paul,
I know that you want a Kohler CH18S but I can't find the spec number you need (Kohler web site won't work with my browser), your Kohler engine deal ought to be able to look this up for you.
