Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
It sounds like you have tried just about everything that I might have suggested other than one thing. Try setting your points at .018 instead of .020 and see if that makes any difference. I have had better success with the .018 setting on the Kohler engines, the points seem to last longer and perform better.
