Kohler 16HP no start...Ignition module failure?
Model 2166 13A-254G100 Mfg. Code 1C310G 30042 16HP Kohler
This engine has all the classic symptoms of an engine out of time. It spits gas out of the carb and backfires out of the carb and muffler, but makes no attempt to start whatsoever, not even with starting fluid.
It only has 93 hours on the meter. Do these engines have known problems for electronic ignition failure?
Would I check the ignition with a timing light? and are there marks to do this?
Thanks for any suggestions.
