Just bought a used Toro with a Kohler 20hp Courage motor and am having some problems. My son was mowing and it just quit. I have tried to start but it just spins and spins and sometimes it will pop a time or two just to tease me.
The motor has about 20 hours but is a rebuilt short block. I sprayed fuel in the carb and nothing. The spark plug is dry and is sparking. I took the seal off the fuel shut off solenoid to make sure I was getting fuel to the carb,

any help will be appreciated.

Thanks for the welcome. I have been reading a few forums and this seems to be the most knowledgeable.

I last night I took the spark plug out and noticed it was not wet. I thought with all the spinning of the motor it would be wet and it was completely dry.
I also tried some starting fluid and got just a few pops to tease me.

I took the valve cover off this morning and the intake rocker arm was off the push rod and the push rod was flopping around. Unbelievable ! Anyway, I tightened everything back up and it runs like it should.
