Has anyone ever used one of these replacement Kohler carbs from Amazon? Went ahead and ordered one for my 16 HP K341. The throttle shaft on the old one has so much play that I'm surprised the thing even runs at all. I've heard plenty of good reviews and also plenty of jeers claiming they are cheap and don't work as well. Looks like an exact copy of the Kohler carb. I guess we'll see for certain tomorrow when I get it put on...
Thanks for starting this section @nylyon and Mike @prondzy for suggesting it so with thanks given I would like to kick it off by seeing pics or comments on your favorite piece of shop equipment or tool(s). You know something that you couldn't work on horses without or that they would have to pry it out of your cold dead hands. It can be more than one thing of course! Pics of mine to follow.
So I just purchased a nicely running WH 212-6 (32-12 K601) and I am in the process of performing some maintenance on the tractor as there were a few TLC issues.
The carb is leaking some gas and I suspected it would be the main O-ring for the bowl and indeed when I opened it the gasket simply was not there. My main question is in reference to the float. The float is not level when removing the bowl rather it is tilted downward at an angle from the pin. Should the float be level once the bowl is removed?
If so what is the best way to remove the pin and the relevel the float.
There is a great diagram for the carburetor here:
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
