Most of these small air cooled engines don't have a lot of compression but off course it does need some. During my time in repairing these all i would do would be to remove the flywheel screen and one plug at a time. Using a piece of stiff plastic or a hammer handle give the flywheel a very hard flip in the opposite direction to it's original travel, if it brings up and bounces back in the proper direction it would normally turn then the compression should be sufficient. Then repeat this procedure again by re installing the spark plug and remove the other one. You can check each cylinder one at a time with this procedure. Normally i don't think the manufacturers give the specs for the compression ratios in psi.

Have you tried pouring a little fuel into the plug hole and try for start? If it runs for a short time, you have fuel delivery problems. Check the fuel filter for plugging. Look under the carburetor bowl for a small solenoid that commonly sticks in one position. I'm not aware of an automatic compression release on these engines. As this is a 4-stroke engine, it's possible that one of the valve clearances has closed up during use. Check this with the piston at top-dead-center on the compression stroke. Hope some of this helps!

SOURCE: when does 25 command kohler fire on magnet

It fires when the left edge of the magnet is precisely aligned with the left edge of the left leg of each coil. (When viewed from the flywheel and looking straight on at the coils.)

Hope this helps,

Have you checked for a bad head gasket?

Check the intake valve springs or the intake valve shafts to be sure they aren't stuck open. Another cause could be excessive carbon build up on the intake valve causing them to not seal.

If you've gone this far, you could try a compression leak down test. If you still have the push rods out, you can use or get an adapter that will allow you to pressurize the cylinder(s) with air by removing the spark plug. Apply 70-80 psi air directly to the cylinder (the cylinder may go to BDC (bottom dead center) but if you don't have any push rods, the valves can't open.

Listen carefully - if you hear air leaking out of the carb, it's a bad intake valve. If you hear air from the exhaust, it's an exhaust valve. If you hear air from the crankcase breather, it's piston rings.

SOURCE: how much compression should a kohler 25 hp engine

hi there

there are no published compression limits for kohler

the prefered method is to have the cylinders leak tested , because of the decompressor action built in while trying to compression test

but off the top of my head most machines would run best with a minimum of 100 psi or better
given that these have a compression ratio of 9:1

you could work it out

9:1 X 14.7 PSI ( 1 amtmosphere ) @ sea level = 131.00 psi

compression ratio = swept cylinder volume + clearance volume (@ tdc) divided by clearance volume

Lincoln ranger 8 and kohler engine command 20. engine does not pull gas to carburetor. Putting little gas directly in carburetor; machine runs until finish gasoline inside carburator.


engines don't "pull" fuel to carb , it either gravity flows (tank over top carb) there or its pumped there , I do believe the kohler engines from 8 hp thru 25 hp use a vacuum activated fuel pump (three hoses on it) these do go bad over time and need replaced , also there are fuel filters on all these engines that need to be replaced seasonally they are not cleanable there disposable

What to do? I have a craftsman GT 5000 with a 25 HP Kohler and it will run for about 10 minutes and then start cutting out and die. I have changed the fuel filter with no resolve. What should I look at...


Make sure the choke is coming off. Check the compression.Many times the head gasket may leak when the engine heats up. Also check for spark sometimes the magneto can heat up and quit after running a while. See if it will run if you prime with a little fuel, if so ,some of the Kohler engines this size have a fuel pump that could be failing. Check for vapor lock. It takes air and fuel properly mixed, spark and compression any of these missing the engine dies.

How to set timing on 25 hp kohler enging


most of the timing on this type of engine requires the alignment of the dots on the cam shafts with the dots on the crankshaft. Only other timing required would be the coil leg gap to the flywheel magnets. Most of these require approx 12 thousand clearance.
