    Out of the blue, My Toro Z (25hp) won't start. It will crank like usual but will not fire, it is getting fuel when choked, and replaced the spark plugs and blew out the fuel lines and filter. Both spark plug will are on securely. Why will it not fire, please don't say it is a internal problem. Tomorrow is a busy day so I hope I can get it going, Thanks yall

    It sounds like the magneto may have failed.

    it could be one of many things and yes they are all time consuming to fix
    first off how many hrs on that engine? if you have more than 600 you need to look at compresion do a test and see if there is any major differents in the two cyld. those kohlers are bad to blow head gaskets,intake gaskets and such.
    and of corse ck for spark for many years kohler had a problem with the coils,
    and the s.a.m. other than that i realy need to know what year and how many hrs are on that unit. hope this helps john wilson
