15 Kohler evil starting beast!
When I have been trying to start my exmark with a 15 Kohler I find that it will pull once or twice, then I will pull with all my mite, and the cord does not come with my hand. You know, the powerful pull that rips your shoulder off. I can then overcome the pull with a long hard slow pull, then pull a couple more times with no start, only to find that the engine is siezed again. Any thoughts on what is going on here? I figure I am having a choke problem, but would this cause the engine to sieze? This is like when Oil gets in the carb of my 21 and the engine siezes up. Any suggestions, ideas are much appreciated.
