Problem with Kohler XT173-0326
First post here looking for some help. Just inherited a Speeco log splitter that has a Kohler engine with the spec # of
PH-XT173-0326. I found out that the prior owner had mistakenly put diesel in the machine, and it has not been run since. I have drained the tank, emptied the carb bowl, put in a new plug and filled with fresh gas but it refuses to start. I do have a spark. I'm considering replacing the carb next, and wondered if this is neccessary, or if anyone has any other suggestions? When I took the air cleaner off, the was definately some very gummy residue visible in the carb, and a very strong smell of lacquer
Any help and suggestions would be appreciated..
