If you attach test line to the fuel pump inlet and drop it into a fuel container. will it pump? If it does, the fuel suction, before the fuel pump, is not vacuum tight, and the fuel pump will not work. Check the tank outlet, and hoses, up to the fuel pump.

Thank you for your help
I got it to bring fuel to regain but now it's flooding the caburator what could be the problem

The carburetor needle valve and float are not controlling the fuel into the bowl, causing the flooding. The needle valve needs cleaning or replaced.

thank You for you advice, changed needle valve, and gaskets no more flooding. new problem carburetor not flooding bowls filling up with gas, gas is not not moving out of bowl engine wont start

Does bowl fill but no fuel to the cylinder? The bowl bolt and the passage it screws ito are the main jet, that is where fuel is sucked into the cylinder. I assume there is no solenoid in the base of the carburetor.

Has no solenoid its a kohler engine model number CH20S and spec number is *****

Check and clean the main jet!
