Hi, I just replaced the stator on my kohler. Now it takes a long time for it to start. The starter is turning the engine fine it will just not fire. After several tries it will finally fire up and then has no problems once its up and running. And sometimes I turn the key and it just fires right up. I have no idea whats going on, if you could share some insight that would be greatly apperciated by me and my overworked starter

If you had the flywheel off then you had the coils off, What did you set the coil to flywheel magnet air gap at ?

The thickness of most business cards is close enough to set them by for proper starting/running.....

You didnt post numbers, Im guessing since its a 25 hp it is probably a horizontal engine meaning you had to pull the engine to do the flywheel. If Im correct here did you adjust the choke cable properly when you put the engine back in?

I used a thin piece of cardboard so it might be too big. I will readjust them with a business card. I thought this might be an issue, but it runs fine once its started so i didnt know if it was the problem. I will readjust them and post the results
