Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi Doug, having an issue with a Kawasaki FC540V. Replaced mine on JD GT262 (1996) with one from a JD 185 (1988-90). Using my original ignition system and fuel pump. It ran a few seconds on first try then will not start. Seems engine turns over hard was thinking of switching the OHV head from my original engine. Any thoughts on this idea?
