Open Question

I have a simplicity legacy tractor with a 25hp kohler engine. after changing oil and filter a few hours later I started hearing a noise like a bad lifter. It is more noticible between 2500 and 3000 rpm. Is there an adjustment to the lifters or is this something else ?

SOURCE: Lifter clicking sound in 4.6 engine

it could be your tensioner. it sounds like a clicky squeak. sometimes it may go away but it always comes back. thats what mine is but i havent fixed it yet. i doubt you can grease it, you probably need it replaced. not expensive, at least the part should be under 100 bucks

On the bottom of the carb., there is an anti-after fire solenoid, take it off and make sure that it is working with the key switch, it should retract when the key is turned on and go back out when the key is turned off, if it doesn't check the red wire to make sure it is still connected

Kohler Command 14 OHV, Simplicity, riding lawnmower. oil is mixing with gas and blowing out valve cover breather tube and into air filter chamber. What's wrong?

The needle and seat in the carburetor are not sealing. If you don't want to have the carburetor rebuilt what you need to do is change the oil and install an inline fuel shut off valve in the fuel line so you can turn the gas off when the mower is not running or in use.

Oil change

Take the old one out and get the numbers off of it or take it with you for reference. The amount of oil is probably 3 quarts but that can be looked up on cub cadet site.

Simplicity riding mower with 16HP Kohler engine stalls after about 15 minutes. Acts like it isn't getting any fuel, but it will run again later.

I have seen this problem a few times and this may not be the solution however, check the fuel filter. It may have melted and partially closed off the fuel supply. The routing of the fuel hose will cause the inlet end to bend slightly if it gets too hot under the hood.

Craftsman DGS6500 Garden Tractor 24 HP Kohler engine. Messages says CH6 Oil - what does it mean? Oil is full and new.

It means change the oil. It will come on every 50 hours regardless when the oil was last changed, then go off after a few hours.
