The gas just pours out of the engine when you try to start it?! That is a serious problem.... can you see where it is coming out? Is it just dripping out or literally pouring? There is some gasket or valve that has cracked inside the engine, or worse :(... I need to know more though. Regardless it is going to need some major service. Call Poulan to find out how you can get it service: 1.800.849.1297

I have an older poulan pro 18 hp ohv.kohler engine. Tried adjusting throttle linkage to get more rpm. the throttle /carburator linkage plate has adjustment also. In what order do you start adustments

The Kohler is design for 3600 Max rpm with it developing peak torque at 2200 rpm 42.5 N·m (31.4 ft. lb.)

If your trying to go above the 3600 rpm then your only risking damaging the engine plus causing unnessary wear and tear on it.

Poulan ride on lawn mower will not run by itself--if you pour gas into the intake it will run until the sm amt runs out

It could be your fuel shutoff solenoid is not working or is stuck from gum, varnish or rust in your carb bowl. The fuel shutoff solenoid is located on the bottom of your carburetor. To check it, have someone, or yourself if you can reach the ignition switch, turn the key to the on position and back off several times while you listen by the carb. You should hear a click each time. If not, the carb will have to be taken off and cleaned and checked. You will probably find water and/or rust in your bowl plugging up the main jet. Best to take it to a shop.

Try to start mower and turns over but wont start unless you pour gas in carb then it will start and run fine. 1648s scotts mower with a kohler motor.

Does it continue to run after you start it by pouring gas into the carburetor or does it die again?

If it continues to run, it sounds like your choke is not working. Probably disconnected -- check linkage.
