Question and Answers

Q:

runs rough SV7350016 Kohler Engine

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

You are probably right, the ignition module on the right side is sporadic and is not consistently generating spark, and you're only running on one cylinder. Kohler has discontinued the older style of ignition for a newer updated MDI system. This new MDI no longer requires 12 volts to function. 

The kit needed for this SV735 series Kohler engine is part number 32-707-01-S. It will include both modules, and everything needed to make the conversion. It should also include installation or conversion instructions. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

I had the same problem with my 917.287462 mower. Ordered the 32-707-01-S kit, installed it, and the mower started but then died after about 10 seconds. I tried it a second time with the same results, now the mower won't start at all. I double checked everything to make sure that I installed the kit correctly. Appreciate any advice/help.

I have a 917.287462 with a Kohler engine SV735. I need to clean the carburetor but I can't get the air cleaner base off, how and or what size wrench fits the screws?

Q:

clutch for blades won't engage 917289470 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Have you checked whether any power is getting to the electric clutch? If there is power there. To check, have someone set in the seat, turn the key on, (do NOT start the engine!), and pull up on the mower engage knob. You should hear a rather loud click from underneath. If at this point you can still turn the pully that drive the belt, the clutch will need adjusted. I think the clutch used here is basically the same used on automotive A/C compressors. This is normally done by removing shims from inside the two halves of the clutch. You can find out how this is done by doing a search a automotive air conditioning clutches.
