I just bought my first Wheel Horse. She's a c-175 Automatic. Sounds like I stumbled onto a Crappy example of a Kohler as it has a KT17 series 1. The previous owner said "She was running when I shut her off" That was around 2010. So she's been sitting for around 10 years. The fuels system is a total disaster!! I drained what looked like dark maple syrup from the tank. I'm thinking about buying an ultra-sonic cleaner from Habor Freight for the carb work. First - Won't crank It took a while just to get her to crank ,(I have a tendency to go through the butt hole to work on the tonsils) I checked all of the safety switches (PTO, Seat, Brake) and found them to be good, then found the ignition wire "OFF" the solenoid. Plugged it in....Cranks great. NEXT - No Spark I have power to the coil when the key is on. I pulled the flywheel expecting to check the points...ahhh...none there. Found a series of very dirty magnets that I suspect make up the charging system. I cleaned the magnets and put the flywheel back on....No spark. Then my dog got out and I didn't get back to the shed. Hoping to get back out there today.
