I need your advice again. I have a GT 6000 that was neglected which I picked up at a great price. To get it going I had to replace all the fuel lines, filter, and have also replaced the carb with one from another engine. Last week the tractor stalled while on a hill, I thought I was out of gas but was not. Back on level ground it started right back up. Yesterday I went to start it and it took forever to start but wouldn't stay running. The only way to get it to run for even a few seconds was to leave the choke on.

Any ideas of why it would be starving for fuel? The filter is still clean.

Could the fuel pump be bad?

I am not familiar with Kohler engines so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Dave

I'm not familiar with your tractor or engine but it could be a fuel pump, a hose could have clogged or maybe it's just one little speck of dirt in the carb bowl clogging it up.


That's where I would start right now.

Edit: it could also be water in the bowl as well, I had a similar problem with my hh120 Tecumseh, would run but die shortly after because the water would clog the jet.
