Question about Kohler Electrical Supplies
My Kohler marine generator runs but it stopped flowing seawater so I must shut it down after a few seconds? I have replaced impellers twice trying to fix, but it will not **** water from lake. I know the shaft turns; but I cannot be sure that it engages with the impeller to force the impeller to turn? If I connect a water hose right in front of connector to impellor compartment, it works fine. It may be the pressure is so high that it pushes around the impeller. What are possible causes? Could I have a leak in the prime somewhere, or could it be that the shaft has a mechanical problem to not engage impeller?
Go over board and check that the inlet end for the pump is not blocked with plastic sheeting or debris

OC stands for Over Crank. How long does it take before the genset starts?

This overflow can be caused by:
1. The float sticking
2. Gas inside of the float air chambers
3. The needle and seat have debris in them or a r damaged.
It is not a difficult fix but it does mandate removal of the carburetor float bowl.
You could probably do this yourself. It is much easier if you place the generator on a high work area so you can see the float and needle once you have the float bowl removed. Just make sure you do not drop the float assy so far that the needle comes out of the seat unless you have to remove the hinge pin SCREW for the float to clear the debris near the needles' pointed rubber head.
Thanks for using FixYa

SOURCE: Kohler 5E, initially water pump
You did not say what fuel you running the motor on??? It sounds like it may be LPG or Propane.... is so then it seems as though you do not have enough surface for evaporation...
