    i just bought a used toro dingo with a 20 hp kohler engine. We ran it all day a couple of weeks ago and it ran like a champ. Brought it in and cahnged the plugs and took it back out to finish job. Hasa not ran right since. Everytime you take the choke off, it dies out. Have since rebuilt carb, check fuel pump, changed oil, and replaced old plugs back in to no avail. Please help. Than-you:confused:

    Sorry to hear your troubles!
    Interesting senairio you have. changing the plugs than NaDa Bummer!
    Sounds like you have a carb problem now and if you clean the bowl and locate and clean the highspeed jet you be back having Fun on your Dingo Again!

    Run it in the dark. Look for arcing on the plug wires. You may have damaged one or both of the spark plug wire and now it is arcing out against the frame causing a mis-fire. I have seen this happen more than once.
