Ya need to download a shop manual from the Kohler website!
Yes, Bottom of the carb..... It's a faint click, Put your finger on it then reach over to the key and switch on and off.....
Problem solved! It was the fuel shut off solenoid. Mine was mounted horizontally on carb. It wasn't clicking w/key on so I guess the stars were aligned just right last night, 'cause I tapped on it then viola, the little bugger started to work. Then she fired right up.
Thanks for all the help, hopefully I can return the favor in the future.
Now lets get the plows ready.
(If it's got boobs or a key, it's eventually gonna give you trouble!)
You should pull the solenoid and clean the debris, etc. from around the pintle, they have a tendency to get gunked up.
If it totally craps out you can cut the pintle off and screw the solenoid back in.
Sounds like a great idea, a good winter maintenance project.
