Engine will start when gas sprayed in choke, but immediately dies, has new gas filter

With the limited information you have posted, no brand name or engine type .. here are a few possibilities: Out of gas .. Faulty 'electrical' fuel shut off solenoid on bottom of carburetor .. Faulty fuel pump .. Debris in fuel tank or carb .. Carburetor gummed up inside... Good luck!

20hp kohler enginewill not run exept when choke is pulled starving for gas

Very common problem! There are very small passages by the throttle butterfly that feed fuel to the engine. They must be cleaned and flowing. Suggest a very good and through cleaning of the carburetor, and this should take care of your problem!

Only runs with choke on Cub Cadet 19 hp kohler

Carburetor probably needs cleaning and carburetor rebuild kit installed. You need a local that can determine which kit you will need based on the engine model and spec number.

How to adjust carburetor on a 20HP V-Twin Kohler Engine, it will not idle properly

The problem is more likely that the gas has varnished inside the carb. Mine did the same thing and I cleaned the carb and it ran great afterwards.

Now I have the carb off again because someone dumped a bag of sugar into my gas tank and it got sugar all through the system and into the carb and engine. I couldn't believe how much sugar is in there. Now I'm trying to find a diagram or schematic to show the exact set up for reinstalling the choke and throttle linkage and the spring with the throttle.
