    You're on a roll...2 in a row..
    Replaced the valve plate and orings...its still runninng today...

    If you can't wait for my secret BBQ sauce...
    Pick up a bottle of Bullseye original....put masking tape over the label...
    And with a black chisel tipped marker...write...SlapperSauce...
    That's my secret....:waving:

    Yeah, you can tell right off when bits of metal/trash get caught up in the plate, usually makes them little end slots about twice as long!

    QUESTION AND ANSWER TIME.....
    For these failures the engine is a Kohler Command CV25.standard ignition..
    1)....Battery no charge..blows fuse when key turned on..doesn't blow fuse when regulator unplugged...
    2)...Engine only runs on 1 cylinder until you apply the choke...then runs fine..
    3)...Engine is leaking or using oil..While replacing the valve cover oring you find what looks like a piece of a metal guitar pic...

    1. Bad regulator or shorted/grounded alt.
    2.Air leak at man./head joint
    3. Out to lunch breather valve/reed.

    Not bad...
    1...shorted stator....usually crunched by loose flywheel magnets..
    2...intake gasket leak...every once in a while clogged carb..
    3...broken reed valve..
    See if I can warm up some of them CyberRibs.....

    1. cook ribs.
    2. refrigerate/freeze the ribs.
    3. procure styrofoam box.
    4. install ribs into box.
    5. top with dry ice.
    6. tape securely.
    7. prepare address label and affix to box.
    8. mail them suckers to me!!

    Let's try this again...time to earn your keep...
    Question #4....Kohler 25 with DSAM...

    Installed 2 new coils..sequenced DSAM with tester...checks good...
    Condition...coils have slight misfire until engine warms up...then runs fine...
    Name That Failure...
