Re: Kohler Command help needed
Hey Rudy.... This would go along with the "fuel line overheating" idea but from a different angle. Earlier the carb solenoid was mentioned and I said something about the muffler explosions on these things without that solenoid working. If this has happened to you at least once in the passed 14 years the muffler could have separated on the left side. (moderately common issue) This heats up the left side frame rail which is the side the fuel line is on. Fuel line can get superheated from this.
Another tell tale sign of the muffler being separated is the paint burns off the left side front frame rail and it then surface rusts. To actually see the muffler split it needs to be removed and the heatshield taken off... But if you've got that surface rust it's a dead giveaway.
