Kohler Engines

Do Kohler Engines normally have noisy lifters or is it just me? I have had my Toro 52 ZTR in the shop 3 times for them to find a problem and they say they cant't find anything.

Most of the Kohlors I have owned have had noisy lifters. The dealer in my area says it's just the way Kohlor's sound. I have noticed that I don't hear the lifters after using 100% synthetic oil.

I use 15w40 Mobil1 and it runs great. Once i added some prolong and that relly helped quiet the motor down too. <br>My dealer recommonded that grade and brand of oil for the kohlers and even the kawasakis. synthetic oil is worth the extra money. It queits and cools the engine better in my opinion.
