    I have a John deere 165 w/ 12.5 hp kawasaki engine. The model # on engine is FB460V-BS00. The serial # is FB460-115408. I bought it and it came w/ a new carb. I put the carb on, put new fuel in, and it wont start. I checked and have a good strong spark. The carb is getting fuel. Im wondering if someone can tell me what the compression should be and if anybody has any ideas for me as to what might be wrong.
