Carbs aren't fun in the Kohler Twins. Just not. Are they easier on the Vanguards?
Double checked and no specification either way for hot or cold. If it were mine, I'd set them hot, or add a little to that spec and do it cold (easier). Better to have a little rocker noise than a burnt valve
I have mad respect for the Vanguards, haven't owned one myself though. I like the Commands because they are a very leak-free engine, very well sealed (with the exception of the oil drains). I like the sound of the Vanguard more. It has more of a growl to it
