Kohler lh775 missing on 1 cylinder


Recommended Posts

OK here goes.  I have a cub cadet volunteer with a fuel injected Kohler lh775.  This was brought to me from another shop since they couldn't figure it out.  

Here's their story.

came in for a water pump.  tech pulled the intake and a few other misc parts and replaced the water pump.  Reassembled and the motor was missing on cylinder 2.  replaced several parts and just couldn't get it to run on both cylinders.

 

So in my shop we checked compression 155ish on both cylinders at wot.  I can get the motor to start if I hold the gas pedal in just the right place but at low RPM's it very rough.

Pulled side cover and verified timing is correct and key ways are not sheared

turned over motor with injectors out and they spray evenly and the same. best I can tell by eye

installed new plugs and got motor to start and held it at higher RPM's for a few seconds.  cylinder 1 plug is dark cylinder 2 is still new and seems  damp with gas

switched coils from 1-2 installed new plugs again and same test with same results.  

The other shop replaced the ECU and harness.  No matter what parts I switch from cylinder 1 to cylinder 2 the problem stays on cylinder 2.  

 

Any thought or ideas would be greatly appreciated

I agree I have had a spark checker on both cylinders during the checks. Both coils are firing. I have also had 3 new plugs in cylinder 2. The first I changed to run the motor and read it and ever time I ran it with cylinder 1 parts.  So  kinda got to rule out spark. 
 

when I had the motor out I checked timing and key ways. All are good. I even turned the motor over by hand several times and watched the valves in regard to piston stroke. All is good. Piston goes down intake valve opens. Both valves close piston comes up for comp stroke then exhaust valve opens. Did this on both cylinders probably 10 times. Timing marks (crank mark@12 o’clock and cam mark @ 6 o’clock ) every 4th revaluation.

      Got it running. The 4wd gets 12v power but does not engage. The posi traction (rear end) does not engage also.  Any one have experience / ideas on fixing these items?

      I have a Bennche 700 EFI Bighorn. I’ve recently been unable to get it to start. After a little troubleshooting I realized my fuel pump was not pumping fuel. This weekend I emptied the gas and replaced it with new. I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel injector. I also replaced the battery, spark plug and made sure all my fuses and relays were good. I have confirmed that the float on the fuel pump is not obstructed. The UTV is about 12 years old and has less than 100 hours on it. It has not run in over a year.  Not sure whats going on?!? After doing a little reading I'm leaning towards it being an issue with the ECU or perhaps a faulty wire in the wiring harness. Anyone have any ideas on where to start looking or what I could be dealing with? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

      hello everyone, i just joined this forum to try my luck, few days ago i bought an old (dont know exactly), 2011/14 hi sun 500cc ""carburated"",  was not running at the time, but i fell was a good deal and decided it to bring it home to play with it, this is the issue, i bought and installed a new carb, and pump, i repositioned the battery location and upgraded to a "car batt", reconnected the fuel lines and started it, but it only runs with the choke ON, i checked the bowl, it does have fuel,but for some reason wont inject it to run, i came across a video that say that ""the body small tank had to be connected for the cart to run" (was deleted when bought), sure enough i got it to run sporadically , but the so called ""small body tank'' often runs out of fuel and wont refill itself , i had to couple times do it manually, so how does that small tank works ?..what does it do?..and why if  bypass it , the cart wont start?....any help?..thanks so much!!!

      starts up you have keep rpms up for 5 minutes till it warms up then runs fine. But if it stalls wont start unless you unplug fuel pump and hold it to the floor till it starts then plug pump back in and run it till it warms up then it is fine all day.
