    you could have water in gas or carb prob.. make sure you don't have any slop in your butterfly's. i have 2 14hp @ a25hp,had the same problem with one of the 14hp engines

    i mentioned in another post, that i experienced a similar problem although power loss was only evident when i started to cut. plugs were the problem. although, i did change the fuel filter and gas as well.

    another idea..........i have a 20 horse kohler on a walker ...older version.....similar symptoms............the fuel pump is vacume operated not mechanical and some of the vacume lines where dried out ......replaced these lines and problem went away
