Re: Kohler 20 mystery
I'm just running down the list... For an engine to run (in this case one cylinder of an engine) you need spark, compression, and fuel...
Those do all have to happen in a reasonably proper timing, but right side timing seems correct so I would deal with timing, if need be, later.
I've heard these things run fine on one cylinder...
By the way, which model Kohler engine?
