14hp kohler hard to turn over
A friend of mine is having trouble with his riding mower. He got it about 6 months ago, was running and starting fine. Last week he goe's to start it after letting it sit for a month. Didn't want to turn over so he pulls the plug, it turned over but was stiff. After cranking it a while with no spark plug it loosened up a bit. He put the plug back in and got it running. Now it starts and runs fine when warm but when its cold, it has a hard time turning over. Any thoughts about what may be the problem? The battery is good. Starter appears to be ok. I think the model of the engine is a K321. Any ideas as to what the problem might be?
