Customer Question

Kohler 7000 I think 26 hp runs about and hour and acts like it is running out of gas.
Let it set a minute and it will run again for a few minutes.
Replaced fuel filter and it seemed to fix it for one mowing and now back again.
It usually takes me about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to mow

Engine comes with an electric solenoid in the carburetor. This solenoid may be closing off the fuel supply. When cold, listen for the click of the fuel solenoid as you turn key on and off ,when when it quits, flip key on and of, listening for the click No click, no fuel. This solenoid has to have 12 volts as long as the key is on. It Plugs the main jet in the carburetor.
