    I installed an enginaire kit on my 25hp Kohler. I used the mower for about 5 minutes and it started sputtering a blowing black smoke. I took the air filter off and it ran like normal, put it back on same problem. I worked on this for several hours. Has anyone ever had this problem? Any solutions? Thanks!

    sounds like you will have to re-jet the carb or if you can adjust the air fuel mixture. the extra filter has change your air flow , it sounds like its running rich . jeff
