Just one way they cheapened them up I guess. They did something similar with the STX's, but then again, they are entry-level machines. The hard starting seems to be a common issue with the Kohler Commands. This thing was getting plenty of fuel, air, and spark but it just wouldn't fire. Sure enough, a quick carb rebuild did the trick and it was probably the easiest carburetor I've ever worked on.Ata Boy. I have an LT160 that I like but it takes a long time to get started and the welded fenders seem like a design flaw to me.
Same idea. The work stand has the rear leg to lock the work surface in the horizontal orientation.Ray, that stand reminds me of something they had at a car dealership here several years ago. It was made of metal and they would drive trucks up on it and it tipped forward onto the front legs.
Yea, that would look a lot better. There is a red wire on the battery cable with a connector on it. Looks like the wire I’m using goes back to it. I'm sure that would be a better connection. I did find a kohler connector for the regulator, that will help to.You can run a wire from the center terminal on the VR straight to the positive post on the batt ( or to the hot wire on the solenoid for a more sanitary appearance ).
