I have a Kohler cast iron 14 hp engine that this season has developed a
peculiar quirk. It is an old kohler with no oil filter and gravity feed
from the gas tank. The problem is it wants to go dead when I turn
sharply to the right or am on a hill sideways where my left side and the
left side of the mower is downhill. It didn't do this in previous
years. Any ideas?
If it has a low oil cutoff switch it would be located near the base of the
engine, threaded into the casting. Yes, it shuts off the engine. From your
description that sounds like a good place to start.
Thanks for the reply RBM. I will check that out when the sun comes up.
I have a feeling it may be fuel related though as when this happens if I
can get to the choke quick enough I can keep the engine from going dead.
Guess I should have stated this in the original post but I was fishing
for ideas. :) Still am. ;)
