    Kohler k532 engine trouble

    Today I got a coil to try from a garden tractor parts guy I know. Ran it for a bit with the old coil and still acted up. Put the (new) used one on and it ran good. I don't know hope that was it!! The model thrower I have on mine is a model 50. 46" wide. I know a guy that may have one.

    Kohler k532 engine trouble

    Has a single coil unit with both plug wires coming off of. Muffler is a couple years old and has good flow. I appreciate everyone's help so far!!

    Kohler k532 engine trouble

    Yes it will start acting up after load is applied I will check. Mine is a single stage thrower. The 400 is a black sheep and the frame width is different from all the other John Deere garden tractors I don't think I'm having icing issues. It has side shields and makes good heat under the hood.

    Have not had points cover off. Runs really good until load is applied. Have let run for 15 minutes wide open(no load) and don't miss a beat.

    Doesn't backfire at all. Have not put a gauge on to check compression but will blow your thumb out of the plug holes.
  14. Have a John Deere 400 with the kohler 532. Started having trouble throwing snow. Engine starts right up and runs fine. Running at full throttle it runs fine until you make the motor work throwing snow. Then it starts missing and running crappy. It will still run crappy if there is no load on engine. If you back off throttle to half way it runs nice again. You can then push it to wide open and still runs good until you start to load motor and then problems start over. What I have done new plugs, carb cleaned,good fuel flow from pump,new condenser My next step is to check the governor and the timing advance What do you think?? Thanks
