Customer Question

We have a ARiens GT19, with Kohler 19 twin. My husband is a mechanic on heavy equiptment but not small engine. He is baffled by why he can't get this lawnmower to run right. He went through all wiring and carburator. He has been also working on the timing, but timing Marks and points seem to be doing the opposite of what it should be doing. Any thoughts.
