    I have a 14hp Kohler pull start that will run great if I spray it with starting fluid, but when I shut it off something inside keeps spinning. It's getting good spark and compression, could someone advise me as to what the problem might be?

    Spraying with starter fluid to get it cranked could possibly be a throttle cable adjustment (choke butterfly not closing all the way). Something spinning when shut down you will have to explain a little better.

    Thanks for the reply, I will double check the choke not closing. When I shut the engine off something keeps spinning inside for about 15 seconds. I am going to try to take the cover assembly off to check if something is rubbing.
