Prolly not from a motor failure. Mayhaps a warped valve plate.
You're on a roll...2 in a row..
Replaced the valve plate and orings...its still runninng today...

If you can't wait for my secret BBQ sauce...
Pick up a bottle of Bullseye original....put masking tape over the label...
And with a black chisel tipped marker...write...SlapperSauce...
That's my secret....

Yeah, you can tell right off when bits of metal/trash get caught up in the plate, usually makes them little end slots about twice as long!

QUESTION AND ANSWER TIME.....
For these failures the engine is a Kohler Command CV25.standard ignition..
1)....Battery no charge..blows fuse when key turned on..doesn't blow fuse when regulator unplugged...
2)...Engine only runs on 1 cylinder until you apply the choke...then runs fine..
3)...Engine is leaking or using oil..While replacing the valve cover oring you find what looks like a piece of a metal guitar pic...

Not bad...
1...shorted stator....usually crunched by loose flywheel magnets..
2...intake gasket leak...every once in a while clogged carb..
3...broken reed valve..
See if I can warm up some of them CyberRibs.....
