Fuel Recommendations
WARNING: Explosive Fuel!
Gasoline is extremely flammable and its vapors can explode
if ignited. Store gasoline only in approved containers, in well
ventilated, unoccupied buildings, away from sparks or flames.
Do not fill the fuel tank while the engine is hot or running,
since spilled fuel could ignite if it comes in contact with hot
parts or sparks from ignition. Do not start the engine near
spilled fuel. Never use gasoline as a cleaning agent.
General Recommendations
Purchase gasoline in small quantities and store in clean,
approved containers. A container with a capacity of 2
gallons or less with a pouring spout is recommended.
Such a container is easier to handle and helps eliminate
spillage during refueling.
Do not use gasoline le over from the previous season,
to minimize gum deposits in your fuel system and to
ensure easy starting.
Do not add oil to the gasoline.
Do not overfill the fuel tank. Leave room for the fuel to
expand.
Fuel Type
For best results use only clean, fresh, unleaded gasoline
with the pump sticker octane rating of 87 or higher. In
countries using the Research method, it should be 90
octane minimum.
Unleaded gasoline is recommended as it leaves
less combustion chamber deposits and reduces
harmful exhaust emissions. Leaded gasoline is not
recommended.
Gasoline/Alcohol blends
Gasohol (up to 10% ethyl alcohol, 90% unleaded
gasoline by volume) is approved as a fuel for Kohler
engines. Other gasoline/alcohol blends including E20
and E85 are not to be used and not approved. Any
failures resulting from use of these fuels will not be
warranted.
Gasoline/Ether blends
Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) and unleaded
gasoline blends (up to a maximum of 15% MTBE by
volume) are approved as a fuel for Kohler engine.
Other gasoline/ether blends are not approved.
Engine Identification Numbers
When ordering parts, or in any communication
involving an engine, always give the Model,
Specification, and Serial Numbers of the engine.
The engine identification numbers appear on a decal
(or decals) affixed to the engine shrouding. Include
le er suffixes, if there are any.

Operating Instructions
Also read the operating instructions of the equipment this
engine powers.
Pre-Start Checklist
• Check oil level. Add oil if low. Do not overfill.
• Check fuel level. Add fuel if low.
• Check cooling air intake areas and external
surfaces of engine. Make sure they are clean and
unobstructed.
• Check that the air cleaner components and all
shrouds, equipment covers, and guards are in
place and securely fastened.
• Check that any clutches or transmissions are
disengaged or placed in neutral. This is especially
important on equipment with hydrostatic drive.
The shi lever must be exactly in neutral to
prevent resistance which could keep the engine
from starting.
WARNING: Lethal Exhaust Gases!
Engine exhaust gases contain poisonous carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, and can cause death
if inhaled. Avoid inhaling exhaust fumes, and never run the
engine in a closed building or confined area.
NOTE: If the engine develops sufficient speed to
disengage the starter but does not keep
running (a false start), engine rotation must
be allowed to come to a complete stop before
a empting to restart the engine.
If the starter is engaged while the flywheel is rotating,
the starter pinion and flywheel ring gear may clash,
resulting in damage to the starter.
If the starter does not turn the engine over, shut off
starter immediately. Do not make further a empts to
start the engine until the condition is corrected. Do
not jump start using another ba ery (refer to Ba ery).
See your Kohler Engine Service Dealer for service
assistance.
3. For a Cold Engine – Gradually return the choke
control to the off position a er the engine starts
and warms up.
The engine/equipment may be operated during
the warm-up period, but it may be necessary
to leave the choke partially on until the engine
warms up.
4. For a Warm Engine – Return choke to off position
as soon as engine starts.
Stopping
Cold Weather Starting Hints
1. Be sure to use the proper oil for the temperature
expected. See Figure 2 on page 4.
2. Declutch all possible external loads.
3. Be sure the ba ery is in good condition. A warm
ba ery has much more starting capacity than a
cold ba ery.
4. Use fresh winter grade fuel. NOTE: Winter grade
gasoline has higher volatility to improve starting.
Do not use gasoline le over from summer.
Starting
1. Place the thro le control midway between the
slow and fast positions. Place the choke control
into the on position.
2. Start the engine by activating the key switch.
Release the switch as soon as the engine starts.
NOTE: Do not crank the engine continuously for
more than 10 seconds at a time. If the engine
does not start, allow a 60 second cool down
period between starting a empts. Failure
to follow these guidelines can burn out the
starter motor.

1. Remove the load by disengaging all PTO driven
a achments.
2. For Engines without a Shutdown Solenoid:
Move the thro le to the slow or low idle position.
Allow the engine to run at idle for 30-60 seconds;
then stop the engine.
For Engines Equipped with a Shutdown
Solenoid: Position the thro le control between
half and full thro le; then stop the engine.
Battery
A 12 volt ba ery is normally used. Refer to the
operating instructions of the equipment this engine
powers for specific ba ery requirements.
If the ba ery charge is not sufficient to crank the
engine, recharge the ba ery.
Operating
Angle of Operation
This engine will operate continuously at angles up to
25°. Check oil level to assure crankcase oil level is at
the FULL or “F” mark on the dipstick.
Refer to the operating instructions of the equipment
this engine powers. Because of equipment design or
application, there may be more stringent restrictions
regarding the angle of operation.
NOTE: Do not operate this engine continuously
at angles exceeding 25° in any direction.
Engine damage could result from insufficient
lubrication.
Cooling
NOTE: If debris builds up on the grass screen or other
cooling areas, stop the engine immediately
and clean. Operating the engine with blocked
or dirty air intake and cooling areas can cause
extensive damage due to overheating. See
Clean Air Intake/Cooling Area.
WARNING: Hot Parts!
Engine components can get extremely hot from operation.
To prevent severe burns, do not touch these areas while
the engine is running, or immediately a er it is turned
off. Never operate the engine with heat shields or guards
removed.
Engine Speed
NOTE: Do not tamper with the governor se ing
to increase the maximum engine speed.
Overspeed is hazardous and will void the
engine warranty. The maximum allowable
high idle speed for these engines is 3675 RPM,
no load.

performed within the limits allowed by the
cap.
1. Idle Fuel Adjustment: with the engine stopped,
turn the low idle fuel adjusting screw in
(clockwise) until it bo oms lightly. See Figures 16
and 17.
NOTE: The tip of the low idle fuel adjusting screw is
tapered to critical dimensions. Damage to the
needle tip and the seat in carburetor body will
result if the needle is forced.

Troubleshooting
If engine troubles are experienced that appear to be
fuel system related, check the following areas before
adjusting the carburetor.
• Make sure the fuel tank is filled with clean, fresh
gasoline.
• Make sure the fuel tank cap vent is not blocked
and that it is operating properly.
• If the fuel tank is equipped with a shut-off valve,
make sure it is open.
• If the engine is equipped with an in-line fuel filter,
make sure it is clean and unobstructed. Replace
the filter if necessary.
• Make sure fuel is reaching the carburetor. This
includes checking the fuel lines and fuel pump
for restrictions or faulty components, replace as
necessary.
• Make sure the air cleaner element is clean and
all air cleaner element components are fastened
securely.

2. Preliminary Se ings: Turn the adjusting screw
out (counterclockwise) from lightly bo omed
2-1/4 turns.
3. Start the engine and run at half thro le for 5 to 10
minutes to warm up. The engine must be warm
before making final se ings (step 4).
4. Low Idle Speed (RPM) Se ing: Place the thro le
control into the idle or slow position. Set the low
idle speed to 1200 RPM* (± 75 RPM) by turning the
low idle speed adjusting screw in or out. Check
the speed using a tachometer.
*NOTE: The actual low idle speed depends on
the application – refer to equipment
manufacturer’s recommendations. The
recommended low idle speed for basic engines
is 1200 RPM. To ensure best results when
se ing the low idle fuel needle, the low idle
speed must not exceed 1200 RPM
(± 75 RPM).
5. If proper operation is not restored a er adjusting,
carburetor servicing by an authorized Kohler
Engine Service Dealer may be required.
Models with Governed Idle System
An optional governed idle control system is supplied
on some engines. The purpose of this system is to
maintain a desired idle speed regardless of ambient
conditions (temperature, parasitic load, etc.) that may
change. Engines with this feature contain a small
secondary spring connected between the governor
lever and the lower adjustment tab of the main bracket.
See Figure 18.
The system requires an additional procedure for se ing
the idle speed. If speed adjustments are required
proceed as follows.
Governed
Idle Spring
1. Make any necessary speed or control adjustments
following the appropriate instructions covered in
this section.
Tab
2. Move the thro le control to the idle position. Hold
the governor lever away from the carburetor, or
hold the thro le lever so it is tight against the idle
speed adjusting screw, to negate the governor
activation. See Figure 19. Check the speed with a
tachometer and adjust it to 1500 RPM.
Figure 18. Governed Idle Spring Location.
3. Release the governor lever and allow the engine to
return to the governed idle speed. Check it with a
tachometer against the equipment manufacturers
recommended idle speed. Governed Idle Speed
(RPM) is typically 300 RPM (approximate)
higher than the low idle speed. If adjustment is
necessary, bend the adjusting tab on the speed
control assembly to set. See Figure 18.

Troubleshooting
When troubles occur, be sure to check the simple causes which, at first, may seem too obvious to be considered.
For example, a starting problem could be caused by an empty fuel tank. Some common causes of engine troubles
are listed in the following table.
Do not a empt to service or replace major engine components, or any items that require special timing or
adjustment procedures. Have your Kohler Engine Service Dealer do this work.

2. Change the oil and filter while the engine is still
warm from operation. See Change Oil and Oil
Filter on page 8.
1. Clean the exterior surfaces of the engine.

3. The fuel system must be completely emptied,
or the gasoline must be treated with a stabilizer
to prevent deterioration. If you choose to
use a stabilizer, follow the manufacturer’s
recommendations, and add the correct amount for
the capacity of the fuel system. Fill the fuel tank
with clean, fresh gasoline. Run the engine for 2-3
minutes to get stabilized fuel into the carburetor.
Close fuel shut off valve when unit is being stored
or transported.
To empty the system, run the engine until the tank
and system are empty.
4. Remove the spark plugs. Add one tablespoon of
engine oil into each spark plug hole. Install plugs,
but do not connect the plug leads. Crank the
engine two or three revolutions.
5. Store the engine in a clean, dry place.
Parts Ordering
The engine Specification, Model, and Serial Numbers
are required when ordering replacement parts from
your Kohler Engine Service Dealer. These numbers are
found on the identification plate which is affixed to the
engine shrouding. Include le er suffixes if there are
any. See Engine Identification Numbers on page 5.
Always insist on genuine Kohler parts. All genuine Kohler
parts meet strict standards for fit, reliability, and
performance.

KOHLER CO.
FEDERAL AND CALIFORNIA EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEMS
LIMITED WARRANTY
SMALL OFF-ROAD ENGINES
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Air Resources Board (CARB), and Kohler Co. are pleased to explain the Federal
and California Emission Control Systems Warranty on your small off-road equipment engine. In California beginning in 2006 "emissions"
means both exhaust and evaporative emissions. For California, engines produced in 2006 and later must be designed, built and equipped
to meet the state’s stringent anti-smog standards. In other states, 1997 and later model year engines must be designed, built and equipped,
to meet the U.S. EPA regulations for small non-road engines. The engine must be free from defects in materials and workmanship which cause
it to fail to conform with U.S. EPA standards for the first two years of engine use from the date of sale to the ultimate purchaser. Kohler Co. must
warrant the emission control system on the engine for the period of time listed above, provided there has been no abuse, neglect or improper
maintenance.
The emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel injection system, the ignition system, and catalytic converter.
Also included are the hoses, belts and connectors and other emission related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, Kohler Co. will repair the engine at no cost, including diagnosis (if the diagnostic work is performed at
an authorized dealer), parts and labor.
MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY COVERAGE
Engines produced in 2006 or later are warranted for two years in California. In other states, 1997 and later model year engines are warranted
for two years. If any emission related part on the engine is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by Kohler Co. free of charge.
OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES
(a) The engine owner is responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in the owner’s manual. Kohler Co. recommends that
you retain all receipts covering maintenance on the engine, but Kohler Co. cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for
your failure to assure that all scheduled maintenance was performed.
(b)
Be aware, however, that Kohler Co. may deny warranty coverage if the engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper
maintenance or unapproved modifications.
(c)
For warranty repairs, the engine must be presented to a Kohler Co. service center as soon as a problem exists. Call 1-800-544-2444 or
access our website at: www.kohlerengines.com, for the names of the nearest service centers. The warranty repairs should be completed
in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact Kohler Co. at 1-920-457-4441 and ask for an Engine
Service representative.
COVERAGE
Kohler Co. warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that the engine will be designed, built and equipped, at the
time of sale, to meet all applicable regulations. Kohler Co. also warrants to the initial purchaser and each subsequent purchaser, that the
engine is free from defects in materials and workmanship which cause the engine to fail to conform with applicable regulations for a period
of two years.
Engines produced in 2006 or later are warranted for two years in California. For 1997 and later model years, EPA requires manufacturers
to warrant engines for two years in all other states. These warranty periods will begin on the date the engine is purchased by the initial
purchaser. If any emission related part on the engine is defective, the part will be replaced by Kohler Co. at no cost to the owner. Kohler Co. is
liable for damages to other engine components caused by the failure of a warranted part still under warranty.
Kohler Co. shall remedy warranty defects at any authorized Kohler Co. engine dealer or warranty station. Warranty repair work done at an
authorized dealer or warranty station shall be free of charge to the owner if such work determines that a warranted part is defective.
Listed below are the parts covered by the Federal and California Emission Control Systems Warranty. Some parts listed below may require
scheduled maintenance and are warranted up to the first scheduled replacement point for that part. The warranted parts include the
following if they were present in the engine purchased:

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR REQUIREMENTS
The owner is responsible for the proper use and maintenance of the engine. Kohler Co. recommends that all receipts and records covering
the performance of regular maintenance be retained in case questions arise. If the engine is resold during the warranty period, the maintenance
records should be transferred to each subsequent owner. Kohler Co. reserves the right to deny warranty coverage if the engine has not been
properly maintained; however, Kohler Co. may not deny warranty repairs solely because of the lack of repair maintenance or failure to keep
maintenance records.
Normal maintenance, replacement or repair of emission control devices and systems may be performed by any repair establishment or
individual; however, warranty repairs must be performed by a Kohler authorized service center. Any replacement part or service that
is equivalent in performance and durability may be used in non-warranty maintenance or repairs, and shall not reduce the warranty obligations of the
engine manufacturer.
