Still Looking

hey guys i know there is a lot of experience floating around out there and no one has been shy before about what they thought, i just need unbiased thoughts on the possibillities of this amount of grass and whole leaves getting through the screen and fan, these pics were taken about three days after an engine failure
REFER TO PICS IN LOOKING FOR EXPERT OPINION sorry i dont know how to repost pics it says they already exist and wont let me put them here

More info on your engine(looks like a Kohler) would help and what kind of engine failure did you have?

Im like 2 miles north of Pinellas county on the west coast.Or like 2 miles south of New Port Richey.

Now about the screen. I have a Kohler and have never gotten any grass or leaves behind the screen. I would love to see that in person. I would say theres a defect somewhere on that engine thats letting all that into the fan area.

click the link then zoom away. that will show you about where Im at.

well i thought it was that is what started this the dealer said it was not because i didnt blow the grass out of the cooling fins properly they said it was because of this grass i think they misdiagnosed and tried to cover up i just dont think it is physically possible for that to have happened also no pics of colling fins just a clump of green grass and leaves laying on top of the fan
