    Kohler CV490, Type # 27508


    17HP Kohler...Push throttle lever to start, choke closes, starts like a charm. Back throttle off to run position and runs smooth for a few minutes. Then the throttle lever assembly on the side of the engine starts floating back and forth pusing the rod to the carburetor...giving more, then less gas...finaly it just floods it out or something. It never closes the choke during this..just pushes the throttle rod back and forth until she dies...
