Customer Question

I have a cv725s kohler on a 2554 scotts mower. It will start and run for a few minutes and then die. I have put in a carb. kit and checked the fuel pump. The solenoid is operating. Do I need a new carbureator or do I have a weak spark from the coil. Plugs looked good but have not done anything to them. Just bought the mower.

When it dies , how long before it will restart? With twin engine, not as likely to be loosing spark , more likely a fuel problem. You say fuel solenoid is good?It is not dropping out and killing engine?
