I have a J D 212 with Kohler 301AQS. It starts and idles fine, but bogs down with throttle increase. Ideas?

John Deere 212 Lawn Tractor w/ 12 hp Kohler motor.

It was hardly running at all a couple of weeks ago. I changed the oil, and replaced the spark plug and tried it again. It idled smoothly after that, but still couldn't take more throttle. I rebuilt the carb, thinking that maybe it was gummed up. Put the carb back on and fired up right away, but still can't get beyond an idle. Whenever I apply more throttle it just starts running rough, blows black smoke and eventually dies. I have no idea what to try next, do you?|||When you pull the plus after it dies is it wet with gas or oil? If gas it is running too rich. Is the air filter plugged or the choke on? Is there a fuel filter? If so when was this last changed? So if starts and idles OK, it is not electrical so must be too much fuel or not enough air to get the correct air/fuel ratio.|||check for water in fuel....how old is the fuel, if old, drain tank and carb, and replace with fresh, gas has a limited life in these days with additives

How to replace a 35 year old kohler shower mixer valve?

You know, there aren't many things that I don't do for myself. This is one.

Call in a plumber.

.|||A lot depends on if there's access behind the mixer valver or not.

I cut a good sized hole out of the sheet rock behind my valve and could get a wrench back there. Oh yeah- I was working with CPVC plastic so I didn't have to worry about burning the house down with a torch for copper pipe. I think for copper pipe, I'd use a plumber!

Which are better, Kohler small engines or Honda?

I know Kohlers are supposed to be built strong, are they stronger than Honda? I personally don't like honda, but tell me what you think.|||If you dont like the Honda. Go with the Kohler with the cast iron cylinder sleeve. It wont let you down anytime soon. Not to mention the Price difference.|||a think a honda would be better|||the better one is the one that starts in second,dumbass|||Both manufacturers are adapting to new pollution control standard laws. So you might expect some problems from either one as they switch over to low polluting engines. Another factor is noise pollution. Communities are starting to appreciate engines that run with less noise. For example, leaf blower engines are starting to get bad publicity because of the noise they make in your community. Usually the design engineers don't get it right the first time around, so any brand new anti-pollution ("green") engine may have it's problems. I prefer a low noise engine, and Honda has produced some very low noise emergency power backup engines.|||Honda are the best, they run forever.|||Why would you not like Honda engines? They have few flaws and parts are easy to come by. Kohler is a good brand as well. They have the same ease of repair and spares are common, too. I would reccomend either for any project.|||I have Honda CR-V, it's 6 years since brought it in 2000. I told you that Honda are better than Kohler that Honda are made in Japan.

I think that Kohler are easily to breakdown and Honda are harder to breakdown..|||I used to sell both, the Honda is gonna be the top of the line when it comes to small engines. Kohler is a good engine as well. The only problem with Kohler engines is that when they breakdown it is harder to find parts or someone trained to work on them. Honda parts are easy to find and have someone trained to work on them.|||Honda rocks !!!!!!!!

Does Kohler or anyone else make a class 5, round seat toilet with center lift knob actuator.?

Which is better? Kohler Command or Briggs and Stratton Vanguard?

Buying a new ZT lawnmower and can get a pretty equal deal between the two mowers I have in mind. However, 1 is used (3 years old and 150 hours) and has a briggs vanguard and the other one is new and has a kohler command. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.|||My personal preference would be Kohler Command as i've used one before.|||The debate between Briggs %26amp; Stratton and Kohler can be summed up in another more common battle, Ford vs. Chevy. Some swear by them, others swear at them. Both engines are good, so don't let the engine be the deciding factor. My personal preference is the Briggs.

Why does my 15.5 hp Kohler quit when it get hot?

I have a John Deere LT155 with a 15.5 hp Kohler engine. The engine will back fire and quit after it gets hot. When it cools it will run again until it gets hot. Any idea on what could be wrong?|||the ignition coil could be getting hot and breaking down the coil windings. when the engine quits "when it gets hot" pull the spark plug wire off the spark plug and check the spark to see if it is a good blue spark if it does not the coil could be going bad|||Try taking the covers off the sides of the engine compartment; it will run cooler. It worked on mine. And check to see if grass or debris is packed around the engine. It only takes a little to block the free passage of air around it.|||the first thing i would try is replacing the spark plug.

Is the Kohler 1 Piece toilet a portable toilet? Does it have all the hook ups as traditional toilet?

No not a portable toilet -- You can get those at a camping supply. The one piece toilet installs the same as a toilet with separately attached tank,

Sears lawn tractor with 22 hp Kohler engine starts and then dies. What is causing this problem?

Well you know everything is working or it would not even run.

You are not gettting consistant fuel supply. You may have a loose clamp on the ends of the fuel filter. Sometimes the rubber line clamp gets loose or old and allows a small amount of air to get sucked in the line, this lessens the flow of fuel. Check the rubber line, and the clamps on the fuel filter.You also could have a clogged fuel filter. Take the model # of your sears tractor in to the store, they might have one in stock.

Drain the fuel tank and make sure gas is flowing steadily out of the line. Check to see if gas line hose got kinked somewhere.|||Check the fuel flow to the carburetor. Make sure the filter and tank are clean. If that isn't the problem, it is most likely the carburetor. It will need to be cleaned.|||A plugged air vent can cause these symptoms as can many other things.|||clean your air filter, and your fuel filter, but I would bet your air filter is dirty.|||check your oil level?

Kohler generator runs only when start key is pressed continually?

Continually having to press the start key is either related to an over heat, low oil, bad fuel solenoid problem or blocked fuel filter.

I have a Craftsman 18 hp Kohler Automatic transmission. Where do I change the transmission fluid?

shouldnt have too..... ever.. but there should be a drain plug on the bottom or a way to refil it if you dont see either then you dont change it

How do I drain the oil in my Kohler Courage 25Hp engine?

You will have a drain plug somewhere on the underside or lower side of the engine.

Usually it is a 1/2" square plug. It is on the lower part of the engine so it will drain all the oil out. Take a flashlight and look for it. Most manufacturers of lawn mowers, and other machinery will make sure that the engine oil plug is in a area easy to get to.

Craftsman Riding mowers are really hard to get to. They have a plastic snap on cap over the drain plug. It is usually red in color and you have to uncap it and then push the special fitting back and turn it counter clockwise to open the valve so the oil will drain out.

Start up the engine once you find the drain plug (don"t drain oil out yet), let the engine run for 3-4 minutes to warm up the oil so it drains out easily. Then place a catch pan under the oil drain and then open the plug. You also should change the oil filter at the same time. It is usually black and about 3" in diameter. Unscrew it counterclockwise with your hand and a rag around it.

Check your manual for amount of new oil to install after you have drained all the oil out and change the filter and shut the oil valve off or install the drain plug back.

Fill with oil and check dipstick as you go to make sure you do not over fill the oil.

After you are done put dipstick back in, start up engine and let run for a few minutes and re-check the dipstick. Add a little oil if needed but do not overfill.

Use the correct grade of motor oil as manual says. Usually a mower engine is SAE HD 30 .

Can someone help me out with understanding Gestalt Theory and how Wolfgang Kohler was involved with it?

My craftsman tractor with a kohler 15 hp motor billows what appears to be white smoke when i first start it?

it an older lawn tractor model 917256552.........once its warmed up it runs good., no more smoke

not sure if its oil or raw gas seeping into the cylinder.....puzzled|||I think that it is oil. A rich fuel mixture usually causes black smoke that smells stronly of gas. Most likely the cause of the oil burning is the valve guides. A small amount of oil can leak past the guides and into the cylinder. If that is the only issue with the engine it will probably last a long time yet. Check the oil level in the crankcase and keep it near the full mark, never over and you should be good to go. I had a honda motor on a push mower that did that for years. Never used much oil but always had white/gray smoke on start up. Just kept running and didn't bother a thing.|||More than likely it is gas. Sounds like you are using to much gas on startup. It being an older model you may be able to adjust the carborator and should take care of this problem. Also if it has an adjustable choke you make be able to adjust that just for startup. Either way should take care of your problem.|||Possible that the engine is due for a rebuilding..............if not done so already, be sure to change the oil ( and filter if equipped ) every season, check/replace the spark plug(s), and adding Marvel Mystery Oil to the oil %26amp; fuel will help extend the life - that goes for any vehicle with en engine|||Could have too much oil in crank case and sucks it in around piston rings while cranking.

Kohler diverter reducing water pressure by 4-5 times :(?


I recently bought bath and shower faucet from Kohler.


After installing it, I found out that its reducing the water pressure by at least 4-5 times because which I am not getting any pressure in shower.

Then the water travels upwards, passes through diverter and reaches the shower point and it gets reduced to 2 feet if measured in same manner. This means I do not get any pressure in shower

How does the ignition system on a kohler engine work?

Almost all light engines use magnetos for ignition. A permanent magnet mounted on the drive shaft spins past a coil, inducing a current in it. At the right time, points open, interrupting the flow of current; the inductance of the coil, in resonance with the capacitor across the points, creates a high voltage which fires the spark plug.|||Which Kohler engine? I have a regular car 12 volt ignition coil on mine. The points are on the block and covered by a small cover. The 12 volts for the coil is from the battery.

Can i put a 18 hp kohler in to replace a 12 hp kohler?

Hello! I have a 2006 Grasshopper 223 Zero-Turn mower and there is pressure coming from the oil filler tube that pushes the dipstick out. Any ideas what this is?|||There is a breather flexible rubber hose from the engine that allows the crank case pressure to vent to the intake just after the air filter.

When the engine is running, as the pistons move up and down it creates pressure pulses inside the crank case.

That pressure needs to be vented. If the breather filter is plugged, the pressure pulses will try to vent to the next weakest point.

Check the breather tube for kinks or pinched and filter for obstructions.

If that seems OK, you may have a broken piston compression ring, or a hole in one of your pistons.

Are you able to remove the spark plugs and do a compression test on the cylinders?


The other posibility, is a blown head gasket.


Read this:

with 60 hours on it started blowing bluish smoke and ran thru a quart of oil in 10 mins. Called Warranty Repairs, as soon as the Tech came out he went right for the right side of the engine (right side looking from driver's seat)and pulled the plug out. Badly fouled. Head gasket blown. He replaced it and the 4 bolts. He told me this is a KNOWN issue with these particular engines. Told me Kohler used the wrong bolts and after heating and cooling the bolts on the right-hand side "stretch" and cause the gasket to fail. Also said Kohler had redesigned the head and eliminated 2 bolts, making the head almost impossible to torque down evenly onto the gasket.

I am livid. I know this engine had to reach unacceptable temperatures when it blew a quart of oil out, yet the Tech tried to reassure me by telling me there wouldn't be any other damage to the engine from the failed gasket and low/overheated oil.

Needless to say, I am now on the warpath and Kohler...

1) water level: sit on toilet backwards and on your left is a shaft that has a lever at top and a black cylinder on it. the cylinder has a c clip which you squeeze and move to adjust. The adjustment lines are on the piece to your right.

2) your flushing handle is attached to a chain and then attached to a flapper valve. when you pull on the handle the flapper valve needs to come up far enough that it floats. if not the suction of the water leaving the tank will pull it back down before it can properly flush. Adjust the chain.

For a boy.|||I love it, every kohler I know is good-looking and nice and funny, I really love the name x|||It's a last name with zero appeal as a first name, IMO. It sounds more like a brand name than a person...for some reason I'm thinking of water faucets. Just not good.

ETA: I was remembering right...Kohler is a company that makes bathroom fixtures (sinks, tubs, toilets, etc.) So a ton of people will see/hear his name and remember seeing it on a toilet.

Some better ideas with similar sounds:



Conrad (you can also spell this the German way, Konrad)

Casper (or Kaspar)


Christopher (or Kristof, Kristofer, etc. - there are a lot of foreign variations)

Craftsman riding lawn mower with a kohler engine?

my moms riding lawnmower sat over the winter time and when i went to start it up last week it would crank all day long but not start and run has gas in tank getting gas to carburator... new battery didnt do trick either however there is no spark to the spark plug. i unscrewed it with it attached to plug wire and crank engine but there is no spark.. ive exhausted all my options on where to diagnose now.. any suggestions thanks|||You're going to have to ground the plug while you watch for a spark in the spark plug gap.

Any idea as to what I should check or fix? Thanks all!|||The most common problem is the drive belt being worn and slipping. Does the engine rpm stay the same and the tractor slows down or does the rpm drop like the engine is lacking power? If the engine is slowing down and lacking power I would say that it needs a tune up and maybe the carburetor cleaned. That would be air and fuel filters, spark plugs, valve adjustment, oil and filter change. I would first look at the drive belt. Also if it is an automatic transmission there is a purging process in the owner's manual.|||Don't know which mower you have but could be a loose ,stretched belt or if it has a rubber wheel disc drive the wheel has to be replaced.

I viewed the full cast and crew of the movie on IMDB but I didn't see his name, on other movie review sites too. Is he in the movie? If not, why is he not shown?|||Wow, I just looked it up in IMDB and you're right.

The move is not an exact re-creation of the novel. The screenwriters/director/production team chose not to include him.

It is common for them to do this sort of thing a famous recent example is eliminating Tom Bombadil from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He was perhaps the 4th most popular character in the trilogy, but he was not in the movie

Perhaps it is because the legal team wanted to eliminate the possibility of litigation, It is one thing to say there were some scientists that worked at CERN, but anoother to say the Director of CERN

or it may be because he simply didn't fit.|||I first looked on IMDB too -- and I couldn't find him! I wanted to know what actor they could ever find to play that character. Kohler was a great distracting character and I wish they had kept him for the movie. Ah, Hollywood. Can't live with 'em; can't live without 'em.

Kohler one handle shower/tub faucet - how to change water temperature?

I just moved into a new home that has one of these single handle shower/tub faucet, but everytime I use it, I only get really hot water. Behind the single handle is a strange stainless steel cone that you can adjust as you would a screw (left loose, right tight), but it does nothing either. And the handle seems to only control the pressure but not the temperature...

Does anyone know how to control the water temperature on these tub faucets?|||Have you tried turning knob to right in one direction bec temperature should adjust toward your comfort level...where turning knob back the other way might turn water off.

Otherwise recommend going to KOHLER website bec Kohler is high quality plumbing manufacturer and even should have 1-800 Customer Service telephone number to walk you through steps...

For a new bathtub, American Standard or Kohler?

Have been shopping at Home Depot and Lowes for a new standard white alcove bathtub. Lowes sells American Standard americast porcelain tub. Home Depot seems to have more Kohler, which are either acrylic or cast iron. I wonder if the cast iron is very heavy and if it is harder to install. Anyone know anything about bathtubs??|||They are practically equal. I install both frequently and they are the choice of custom home builders/owners. Neither scratches easily and both will last for many years. I have never seen any case of a porcelain tub warping or cracking tile.

If I had to choose, I would go with the Kohler. I've installed more of them and never heard any complaints. (Never heard anything bad about the American Standard tho either.)

A standard size Kohler cast iron tub weighs 330 lbs. w/crate. We carried one up 2 flights of stairs last week. The porcelain is heavier.|||As you have narrowed your selection down to two of the best manufacturers, I believe you can let desired features make the choice. If they both provide the features you desire, let price make the decision for you.|||There are not many practical reasons for installing cast iron tubs anymore, the new materials are very durable, however, I can't attest to the Americasts quality, and the Kohler has always been overpriced. For someone who has never installed a cast iron tub, it could be a nightmare. I would look for another alternative.|||Cast iron is heavy but there are good things that come with that. They keep the water warmer longer and do not flex like acrylic tubs do. If you do go acrylic, make sure you use a mortarbed under it. The acrylic flexs and this tears the caulking from the wall. It also can cause cracking. I like American Standard products but have heard a lot of bad things about the Americast tubs. One of the main concerns is the finish going bad in less time than it should. Ask if it is "actually" cast iron as I have heard it isn't. Good luck.|||Kohler has a good track record regarding the environment.

We've been looking to install a new tub or spa, and I found the information listed below:

"Drop-in tubs are made of lightweight acrylic or fiberglass-reinforced plastic--these are susceptible to scratching and dulling--or of enameled cast iron, which may require structural reinforcement."

Good luck.|||I either go with a one piece fiberglas unit that includes the walls or a cast iron tub. Forget that Americast crap. That's a steel tub with plastic baffling.

Ihave a 27 hp kohler engine and it seems to loose power when mowing?

Next time you lose power check the spark on both cylinders. If one is dead you may have a bad coil.|||You may have dirt/debris in the gas tank, or the fuel filter.

The spark plug might be dirty. Remove the spark-plug, and clean the bottom of it with a wire brush.

Anyone ever been to the American Club in Kohler, WI?

I see that it's super expensive and was wondering if it was worth it.

Thanks.|||It's beautiful...one of the only 5 diamond resorts in the midwest; "worth it" is all relative compared to what you have to spend, though, isn't it?

Just down the road are the Blackwolf Run golf courses and River Wildlife (semi-private hunting preserve)..a few miles away are the Irish and Whistling Straits courses that have hosted/are hosting premier PGA tour events.

The village of Kohler itself has some neat shopping, the Kohler Company Design center (think every whirlpool, shower, sink, toilet, you could ever imagine, all on display), the Kohler Company does tours of the manufacturing plant, sports Core Health Club (owned by Kohler Co) is right down the road, "Waters Spa", etc, etc,

Lawn mower with Kohler 23hp engine quits with gas still in tank?

I have a Ariens 48" zero turn lawn mower with a Kohler 23cv engine. I have replaced the air cleaner, spark plug, fuel filter, and fuel pump and no change. When mower quits there is still gas in the tank. I fill the tank to the top and it runs fine again, but it still won't run through a full tank of gas at one time. Any suggestions!!|||I am guessing that the engine quits with the same amount of fuel in the tank each time. The fuel pick up line in the tank is above the bottom and won't drain the tank completely. When it quits and you refuel does it start right back up? If so, you are just running out of gas. If it quits with different levels of fuel in the tank I would look at the filter and the fuel pump. If it quits and doesn't start right back up when you put fuel in it, you should also check the ignition. Coils will fail when they get hot and work when cooled down. It is easy to check for spark at the plugs.|||How much fuel is still in the tank when it quits?

If you only see 1/4 to 1/2 inch, that may be below the fuel pick up tube. You may just have to shut down and fill the tank more often.|||When the engine quits, check for spark at the spark plugs.

1992 14hp kohler tractor eng runs perfect for 15 min, then dies. After an hr, starts & runs 15 min, what's up?

I am going to take a shot here. It could be the ignition module. On my kohler, it would run ok and than when I shut it off it wouldn't start again for at least an hour. I checked the spark when it wouldn't start and of course there wasn't any. When it cooled there was spark and it would start. If you replace the module look around on the internet. There is a huge difference in price. I think that Pat's small engine was the best price. They run as high as $118.00. Pat's had one for $49 plus shipping.|||Although it could be an electronic component overheateing, it could also be a lube problem or bad bearing. When a worn bearing gets hot, it expands and causes the engine to bind up.|||check to make sure that the vent in the gas cap is open. in order for gas to come out of the tank air has to be let in or it causes a vacuum.|||Bad coil.

Is there some way the fittings can be universal and we can purchase say, a Fontaine brand faucet even thought the plumbing out of the wall is Kohler brand? HELP!|||First I will state that I am a licensed plumber. Hope that's not a shock to some of you yahooers to see a lowly plumber here on the boards....Anyway, now that's out of the way i shall continue....

They way you have your terms set you seem a bit confused in regards to your plumbing fixtures. You mentioned the "rough in" plumbing but you never mentioned what "rough in". Was it a 1st rough, 2nd rough, 3rd rough or final rough? These matter to help answer your question. Typically, with the 1st rough the only plumbing that is being done is underground work in the basement, etc for your house's drainage. The 2nd rough brings the drainage piping up out of the basement floor and to the approximate locations of where fixtures and where kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, etc should be in the house. The 2nd rough is done completed before any fixtures are set. Once the 2nd rough is completed then the plumber doesn't return to the house until the house is nearly finished. This becomes the 3rd rough, where the plumber sets bathtubs and pipes the drain lines to the exact location of sinks, toilets and tubs. Once that is complete the plumber leaves and other contractors complete their work. The plumber then comes back for the final rough. In this final rough is when the fixtures are installed. when i say fixtures, i mean sink bowls, vanities, toilets, etc.

So what i'm trying to tell you, as long as the plumber hasn't completed the final rough of the house, you can change whatever sink, faucet or toilet you like (there are some exceptions to this, but those exceptions are minimal) for the most part you are not limited to just one manufacturer like Kohler If the building subcontractor gives you a hard time, just say that you know better because you spoke with a reputable outside plumber who steered you in the right direction.

On another professional note, I would highly recommend Kohler to you. They make a very nice and very durable/lasting product line. They are American made products which means when it does come time to repair a faucet or toilet that parts are readily available to fix it. I can't tell you the number of times i've shown up at someones house to fix a faucet or toilet and it was some German made one. People tend to get mad when you tell them that since its foreign that parts have to be ordered and it'll take a week or 2 for parts to come it. So once again, Kohler makes a great product line.....so does Moen. So that's something to think about.

As far as those talking about going to Home Depot or somewhere similar, you should really do your homework first. Home Depot and places like that have zero knowledge of specialized fields like plumbing.....again ZERO! FYI, it takes 4 years of plumbing trade school to even apply to take the state exam, 4 years that bozo's at home depot don't have to take to claim they know what they're talking about....anyway, and from professional experience, call around to your local plumbing supply stores (places that only deal in plumbing parts). Usually they have showrooms 2 times the size of what home depot or lowes has anyway, they're more designed to accomodate what you're looking for.....and here's the shock that no one knows.....they're cheaper 90% of the time (the only time they aren't really is if you want some foreign made fixtures).

Well sorry for the long rant, hope my 2 cents helps.

Good luck|||who told you that? plumbing fittings are standard so you dont have to buy a new sink when all you need is a new faucet..My suggestion is to drop by your local home depot and take a look for yourself.|||go to your local plumbing shop and ask them, not the folks here.|||Sounds like your plumber is trying to sell you top of the line fixtures, so his cut will be that much more. He's feeding you a line of bullsh*t. All fittings(at least in the U.S.) are universal.

The only thing you have to take in to consideration is the size of your faucets, so they fit your sink. They usually come 4", 6" or 8" on center.|||My exe and dad are plumbers, but I'm not sure. It might be as you say, but I doubt it is a concrete rule. I don't know what it would cost to convert. Call a plumbing supply or plumbing service. They both hate Kohler because they are such pains in the butt to repair... Now what he might be saying is that in the rough out, the measurements were done for Kohler brand stuff, so that might be the deal.|||No, you don't. We just had new fixtures put on two of our sinks, replacing the Kohler with some I liked better. :)|||You can buy any brand you want, it is all standard. As mentioned faucets have different centers but there is a wide selection in all sizes by many manufactures. I would not use the plumber who said you HAD to use Kohler. If he is not trustworthy.

42 inch cut riding mower, John Deere with B&S or Cub Cadet with Kohler?

I'm planning on buying a brand new riding lawn mower but im thinking about a JD or CC. The only thing that's turning me away from CC is that Ive read somewhere that Kohler has been having problems with their lifters.|||buy what you are most comfortable with|||Well I mean John Deere's are the standard by which all others are measured.... if you have the money for a Deere, Id highly recommend that you get a deere! "Nothing runs like a deere".

Briggs and Stratton has been around forever and are quality engines... I too have heard of problems with Kohler motors, especially the hydrostatic ones. Cub Cadet has a great Zero-Turn mower, but Id go with a Deere for a ride on lawn tractor.|||My Dad has the JD and I have CC 2500 shaft drive. The only problem I've had out of the cub is the plastic hood broke off after about 20 hours...The Kohler in my cub runs well, but I only have about 60 hours on it. No problems out of the JD that I've heard of.

What is the difference between a walker mower and a scag cougar. they are both 48" and 20 hp kohler but iwas w?

wondering which is better for leaf cleanup like sucking up the leaves? walkers are a lot of money and this one scag i found is 3000 $ in working order. will the scag do the same job on leaves as the walker will do? THanks|||Walkers are more versatile than a scag. Walkers can maneuver through a yard with grace and ease. They are lighter, quicker and can turn on a dime. They are easier to maintain and fix. IMO I would choose a walker.

How long will my Kohler 12RES generator run on 100lbs of LP?

I am running at about 50% load, and I don't want to run out before power is restored since this is running my sump pump, keeping my basement from flooding...|||Propane is less efficient than gasoline. I'm not sure how much it will burn.

I do know this. Air cooled engines aren't made to run constantly, 24/7. If your engine is air cooled, change the oil after 100 hours.|||100 lbs is roughly 23 gallons. If that 12 means it's a 12kw running, and you are running it at 6kw load, you can expect it to last *about* 2 days. Depending on the actual load, efficiency of the engine, etc.

Your generators manual should have a fuel burn map in it.

What type/weight oil should I use in my 34 year old Kohler K301a?

I have been using Pennsoil SAE 10W-40, the 10w 30 seemed too thin.|||i have a 27 yr old Toro and the book says straight 30 wt|||I would say stick with 10w-40 because that is mid grade.

:-)|||Please do not use a multi-viscosity oil in a small engine! It is not designed to hold up to the increased temperature that small engines produce. So many people have been in my shop over the years with failed engines due to 10W-30 and 10W-40 oils that failed to lubricate properly, and factory warranty will not cover this type "customer abuse". Stick to the manufacturer recommendations, use a good 30W oil. It can stand the pressures of small engine life.

What can i do to my 12hp kohler engine (K301) to make it have more power/torque?

This engine is currently in a Cub Cadet 125 hydro-stat rider mower. Its rated at 12hp but i need a little more horses working for me, or at least some more torque. How do i do this? any help is much appreciated.|||There isn't much that you can do except keep it tuned up and maintained. I guess that you could put a smaller pulley on the front or a larger pulley on the rear. But that small engine will always be the same. Why not go for a larger engine? Bypassing the governor will lead to quick engine failure.|||Unless you want to race the thing (yes, they do this) best to leave it alone.

If you feel the need to embrace the inner Tim Allen in you....

Maybe check and see if your throttle is opening all the way (check the cable adjustment.)

There might also be a governor you could bypass...

How can I clean/freshen up my Kohler "brass" faucet?

It looks corroded. I am not absolutely positive that it's brass (probably not). Thanks.|||Nevr-dull wadding polish works unbelievably well, isn't messy, is inexpensive, and keeps almost forever in a sealed can. Here's a link to a can for five bucks but you can buy it in many hardware stores:

http://www.properautocare.com/nevrdull.h鈥?/a>|||Ah yes, brass.

It is probably not real brass but a coating.

It looks pitted right? Brown spots?

I never seems to get them clean and this is why I do not buy brass faucets anymore.

I get the brushed chrome look. Ours so far lasted many more years then the brass.

If you have the box, or receipt, most have a warranty on it. It can range from 1yr or 5yr manufacture warranty.

If you bought it from Home Depot or Lowe's, they may actually even take it back and exchange it.

:-)|||i used to work for lowes call kohler they have a llt warranty fashion/function they might replace for you.....

How well do Pegasus brand kitchen faucets perform compared to moen, kohler, etc?

also, any problems with installation?|||From personal experience, my husband and I bought an old house that has been partially renovated. All the sinks were recently replaced with Pegasus fixtures and sinks. But, all the showers still had older Moen fixtures in them. The faucet in the kitchen sink has already broken twice - and currently, it's beyond repair and needs to be replaced. We've never had a problem with the old Moen faucets, in this house and in other houses we have renovated.

I haven't completely sworn off Pegasus faucets, because they have a good reputation, and they are generally comparable to Moen and Kohler in looks and price. If it were up to me, I would probably buy either a Moen or Pegasus and most of my decision would be based on the price and looks of the faucet, since both products are outstanding.|||Moen is the best. All other brands have provided me with untold strife over the years and wasted coin. Moen costs a little more at time of purchase but then it gives you years of operation with little to no hassle.|||Most faucets "perform" well, for a period of time. I like being able to get parts if a failure happens. Moen offers lifetime parts replacement. Kohler has a good warranty also. Much of the quality comes from sturdy materials used when making the product. One such thing is "plastic" chrome coatings that wear off or dull in short time. Solid brass bodies are another.

To test spark on a Kohler command twin engine what is the minimum rpm?

Straight from Kohler website. Hope this helps. RPM 550-600 rpm.

Test for spark.

1. With the engine stopped, disconnect one spark

plug lead. Connect the spark plug lead to post

terminal of spark tester (see Section 2), and

attach tester clip to a good engine ground.

NOTE: If two testers are available, testing can be

performed simultaneously for both cylinders.

However, if only one tester is available, two

individual tests must be performed. The side

not being tested must have the spark plug

lead connected or grounded. Do not crank

the engine or perform tests with one spark

plug lead disconnected and not grounded or

permanent system damage may occur.

2. Crank the engine over, establishing a minimum of

550-600 RPM, and observe tester(s) for spark.

3. On a twin cylinder engine, repeat the spark test

on the opposite cylinder if cylinders are being

tested individually.|||if your looking to test for spark ,just the rpm from the electric starter is good

How do I remove the faucet handle & bonnet from Kohler facuet model 15593-P-CP?

I just finished installing a new faucet a friend gave me, and in the instructions it states that after installing I can adjust the water pressure by first removing the faucet handle %26amp; bonnet; but, I don;t think it is possible, (the picture w/instructions is a different look then what was in the box...) |||Hi, the bonnet should be removable by hand. First pop off the blue and red cap, then take out the screw and remove the handle. The bonnet should then be removable by hand. Then you can adjust the limit of the handle range, thus limiting the temperature. Also, if you get stuck, Kohler has excellent technical service at 1-800-4-KOHLER.|||According to Kohler you can adjust the maximum water TEMPERATURE!

What are the major differences, besides hp, of the Kohler CS4 and CS6?

I am attempting to replace the motor on my rototiller and can get a CS6 for much cheaper than the CS4. I was already told it will bolt of to my frame just fine, but my worry is if there is enough weight difference to make my tiller top heavy.|||As long as you plan to till on flat ground, it should be no problem. If you are going on a hillside, it may make it pull down the slope a bit more than normal. Also, depending on how your tiller is set up, you may not be able to do a one-handed thing like you can with a Troybilt.|||Thanks! I went with the CS6 and it seems to be just perfect. A little more power than I'm used to on this tiller but it works well.

Have you read the book Cracks by Sheila Kohler or seen the movie with Eva Green?

Could you please tell me what happened to Fiamma, and give me a plot synopsis in as much detail as possible? I borrowed this book from my friend but had to give it back before I was finished. Thank you!|||I saw the movie, and from what i hear, the details differ from the book

I suggest u borrow/buy the book OR see the movie

But heres the spoilers:

Im not sure up to which point u read up to. Im assuming u were at least up to the part where Miss G becomes fascinated and dangerously obsessed with fiamma. Miss G tries very hard to befriend fiamma but fails. She soon realized fiamma embodies who shes been wanting to be instead of her reality, pretending to be worldly. Fiamma slowly and subtly uncovers the persona Miss G has created in the school is fabrication which drives Miss G mad. There was a point where Fiamma becomes accepted by the other girls and they decide to have a dorm party called the Midnight Feast and dress up as characters. I think this idea was Fiammas from one of the books shes read. Miss G gives for them permission to party and eat all night (against the rules) At one point in the night Fiamma drinks much wine and passes out and drops the bottle making a loud sound. Miss G comes to check on them and sees Fiamma's state. She takes Fiamma to her bedroom and tells the girls to clean their dormitory. And the turning point: Miss G cant help herself because her brain cracked and unfortunately violates poor Fiamma while shes passed out. Di happens to peek through the doors to see Miss G kissing Fiamma. I think in the movie, Di mistakenly thinks they are having a love affair. The next day Fiamma threatens to tell the headmaster about wat Miss G did to her. In the movie they show Miss G following Fiamma, tryna ask her to not tell. The other grls see from afar how Miss G is upset and Fiamma running away from the area. Miss G tells Di that fiamma will tell lies about her and get her fired...im not sure why but i thnk that Di still wants to help Miss G. Di rounds up the girls, finds fiamma in the woods and they all begin to beat her. Fiamma says she didnt want those advances from Miss G but to no avail they still beat her (Fuzzy was in protest) At one point Di rips Fiammas inhaler from her neck and throws it on the ground. Fiamma too is on the ground wheezing heavily and then the grls realize something is wrong. They send for help and of course Miss G comes to Fiammas side....they are alone at this point. In the following events, Im sure the book is different from the movie but from my google searches im not sure how different (the book is more horrid apparently) But in the movie Miss G purposely fails to give Fiamma her inhaler and lets her die in her arms. Miss G was all creepy about it too, by kissing the dying grls head and whispering u "werent meant for this world" or some mumbo jumbo. And then she lays fiammas head back down to the ground from her lap and strategically puts the inhaler into fiammas dead hands...and Di sees this from afar, shocked, and Miss G then sees her too....(in the movie this scene was great acting) and by then the other teachers have ran to the scene to help fiamma. So fast forward Di tells the grls about Miss G murdering fiamma and they decide to tell the headmistress. On their way they took a detour to Miss G's room. THey all take their red sashes off and leave them at Miss G's feet. (in the movie they were worn on the waist of the grls to show they are part of the same team or something) Di tells the headmistress the real deal about the molestation and murder and then the headmistress says dumb things about the schools reputation and no criminal charges against Miss G but she will "Take a leave of absence to travel the world to cope with this recent tragedy" Oh injustice. And then the last scene in the movie is of Miss G all alone in her rented apartment, looking depressed, trying to decide which 5 trinkets she should place on her night stand (in the movie the school had a rule that only 5 things can be on ones nightstand) So that goes to show Miss G is following the schools rules even out in the real world. The real world is something she never even encountered. And shes really nuts The End.

I hope that helped, Please let us know if u need more details and if that made any sense. Im curious to know if the movie details are the same in the book ( red sash, 5 trinket rule etc.)

Kohler Cast Iron kitchen sink?

Does anyone have the Langlade Smart Divide Kohler Cast Iron Kitchen sink? How do you like it? Does it scratch easily?|||Kohler's cast iron surface is "fire polished" to obtain its vivid color and deep gloss. The thickness of cast iron makes its surface resistant to acids, and provides outstanding protection against chipping, scratches and dents. Like any kitchen sink though it can scratch through use. Kohler offers basin racks and baskets to fit their sinks to help protect them.You can also purchase their Cast Iron Cleaner which is great for marks that can be left behind from your pots %26amp; pans.|||Plumbers do not like cast iron.

Some kitchen sinks weigh 350 pounds!

Between the two lawnmower engines of Briggs and Stratton and Kohler, which has the better quality?

Please give your opinion why.|||i believe kohler is higher quality ,and would last the longest.but it usaully costs more and repairs or higher.briggs is good and cheaper to repair.if buying a rider i wanted to really last i would choose a kohler.|||I think that both make good engines, it would depend upon the horsepower and fitness for the particular purpose that you want. For the higher horsepower engines (over 20 hp) Kohler is the largest Cast Iron engine manufacturer in the world and made in the Good Ole USA. Briggs is also made in the US but I think that they are using more imported parts and assemblies, but they make a fine engine, especially in the lower horsepower range. All things being equal I'd buy the Kohler to keep our neighbors in Wisconsin working.|||When I bought a Sears Lawn tractor, the seemingly knowledgeable older salesman said that I could get either, and asked if we had any hills in our yard. I said that we did and he then said we should get the Kohler engine because it had a full pressure oil system like a car engine.

Spray on heavily, let sit about 5-10 minutes, while you clean the rest of the bathroom, then scrub away.

Once the stain is gone, prevent it from coming back! Use liquid lemon oil furniture polish on the sides of your tub and shower stall. Never let it get in the bottom of the tub, you'll break your neck. Just wipe on and buff off. Keeps soap scum and dirt from sticking. You can use car wax, too, just be careful.

First, check the oil and be sure that it isn't something minor like that.

At first it started bogging it down, but the longer it went without fixing the worse it got.

Put a washcloth in the tub drain so you won't lose any parts you

didn't see when the water blows itself out of the valve body. Something comes

out your in luck , just put it back together and voila no leaks. Now if it has to

do with the valve body itself look for sharp edges or broken areas of plastic

or metal where the valve mechanism will find it's home. These little snags

can often rag out a valve seat or spring in no time at all. Clean these

surfaces up if you can. If they are the old type valve stems check the

washer surface for cuts or flattening, and then check if you see this situation

the actual valve seat for damage. No problems put it back together make sure you

replace any springs or seats observe if any o-ring seals are missing

replace them if necessary, put it back together and your good as gold.

I want to buy the KOHLER Revival庐 Toilet Tank ONLY because the elongated bowl is too large for my bathroom.?

The bowl extends out too far and there is only about 2 feet between the bowl and my wall. Therefore, not much room from knees (when sitting) to the wall. Does Kohler have a round bowl that is smaller that is compatible with the Revival Toilet tank.|||great idea -order it.

How to adjust hot water on Kohler anti scald faucet?

I recently moved into an apartment and the shower does not get hot at all and i need a hot shower. I was told that i have a anti scald faucet. Is there any way i can adjust the temperature myself? Please Help. Thanks|||First, try a regular faucet and see if the hot tap there is hot enough. The HW heater may be turned down. There's often a set screw or some other ring that limits the travel of the interior shower cartridge to limit the maximum temperature. Not knowing exactly which Kohler model I can't tell you more. Take the knob off (again it depends on which one you have how you do this, often the center cap pops off exposing a screw) and see what you see inside.|||go online to Kohler and they can explain it. Basically you take the shower knob off and there's an adjustment you can make, They will explain which way to turn it etc.

Mine (Kohler) have an allen head screw that limits the valve handle rotation at the hot end. The center front trim unscrews to release the handle/trim and expose the internal adjustments|||You should have a cover plate on the control knobs. Remove it and look for a slotted screw ahead of an indicator for adjusting the temperature.
