Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
good afternoon Dan my name is John
that's a bad deal you got on your engine. I called a couple of my small engine contacts and they all said the same thing.... they are still to new yet for Honda or briggs to have a replacement. there are newones out there as you have seen I'm sure.
my suggestion would be to contact Kohler and ask for some help. 112 hours isn't very much for that engine and I would think they would want to stand behind that somehow. very sorry I couldn't give you better news but that is where it is at this point. have you contacted your local dealer to see if they had any desire to help you out?
