I take it that this is a CV or CH type motor with hydraulic lifters. If so, then torque the bolts on the rocker arms to 100 inch lbs. Everything else should be correct.

Cant find carby kit for 20hp tecum ?

Get your engine numbers off your mower. This would be for the engine itself, not the mower. They are usually on the side of the engine or maybe on the engine shroud or valve cover.
try a search on Amazon using these numbers and the word carburetor. Good luck.

How do I remove the starter from a Kohler Courage 20hp vertical engine?

go to and look up the engine model.

You will get a nice breakdown.
I believe it is held on by 2 screws towards the top.
You should not have to remove the engine, just the upper housing.
