This has the k181 Kohler engine.

I bought it for fairly cheap. It runs and works but the engine skips and pops at higher RPM. I replaced the carb on it as that was old and it was cheap. I noticed the fuel pump is relatively new as well as the points on it. The points as best I can tell are set correctly and not corroded, they appear to be new as well.

I removed the fuel cap to make sure it wasn't due to a vacuum on that side. I need to replace the spark plug but it is gapped properly and while has carbon fouling doesn't appear to be in horrible shape so I suspect the issue is somewhere else.

The fuel lines are old on it and I've not tested the pump yet. The only other thing is the coil for the points and I'm guessing it has a magneto coil on the flywheel for the ignition that could be a cause as well.

You might get more help for this in the Small Engines section.
