Kohler kt735-3012 runs fine for a few mins then runs rough and burns rich


Ron, Try new plug/s first, sounds like the carburetor has dirt in it, you will probably have to remove carb. and clean/rebuild. From manual, other causes from your trouble shooting guide ,
? Faulty carburetor. ? Faulty cylinder head gasket. ? Faulty or misadjusted choke or throttle controls. ? Fuel pump malfunction-vacuum hose clogged or leaking. ? Intake system leak. ? Loose wires or connections that intermittently ground ignition kill circuit. ? Quality of fuel (dirt, water, stale, mixture). ? Restricted fuel tank cap vent. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Mts 5500 tractor


I have a Sears MTS 5500 tractor, 24 hp, 48" mower, bought new 2008 but used very little; only 127 hours on it. Soon after starting, tractor emits a heavy white smoke. Tried changing the oil, no help. The engine is B & S Extended Live Series, twin cylinders, total displacement .725 liters. Any ideas of what is causing this?

You should be able to push it forwards as well as backwards. I had a similar problem (engine stalling) with mine. I found out if I half choke it, it will stay running. Transmission may still have a problem.

Craftmen tractor w/ Kohler engine stalls out continually


Sounds too lean.
Can you cover the air intake with your hand 90% or use the choke a bit and then load the engine to see if it runs better?
If you ever find a carb with manual high and low mixture adjustments that will fit yours......put it on and keep it on.
You can usually get then from older tractors.
