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

That's interesting because swapping parts you get same results. Is the plug in cyl 2 firing? If so, its gotta be something mechanical, although compression is good you said. I'm leaning on spark and/or timing issue.

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 [email protected] o’clock and cam mark @ 6 o’clock ) every 4th revaluation.

Last effort swapped injectors. Verified fuel pressure and same. Cylinder 2 not firing. Plug looks new coming out and no heat in cylinder. Sent it back broke. 😒😒 feeling defeated.

      I’m working on a 98 mule kaf620. The fuel pump failed. It was making a loud clicking noise and would not accelerate. I replaced it with the cheapest pump I could find on amazon. It failed after a few days. We bought another pump from fuel pump factory and installed it. It began leaking from the seam in the body after about 10 minutes. I contacted them and they sent another new pump. After installing it, same thing; leaking at the seam of the pump. I’m not sure how to move forward. Does this pump have some sort of internal bypass? Being an electric pump, it cannot run all of the time. What am I missing? 
      Any help would really be appreciated, as a grandmother uses this to feed her cattle and is using a red wagon until it is fixed.

      I generally use my challenger for light duty misc. use, and for plowing. The one thing I dislike about this machine is the difficulty in shifting. I've had it the shop and they adjusted the shifting lever, but I still have issues. Some times it shifts ok, but the problem is it is hard to get it to move the lever from high to reverse or low to high or from any gear to the other. Seems I always have to accelerate a little to get it to engage to what gear I need it to go to. This is definitely not normal.

      Hi I bought a project 2008 odes 400 utv. Does anyone know how the fuel hoses hook up and where does the fuel return hose connect to?

      Hi everyone, I’m new to the forum and was looking to get some help from anyone that has the same UTV as mine. 
      So I just picked up a 2016 Cub cadet challenger crew with eps. It’s needs work, the guy that I bought it from completely took the machine apart due to needing an engine rebuild, but he also took off some spare parts to keep for his other machine. So basically I’m missing a few electronics, I think I’m missing a relay box and ecu but I’m not sure. I’ve looked everywhere on the internet for some pictures under the hood and can’t find anything. I’ve found part schematics but some of the pictures are not clear.
      Can someone please open up their hood and post a few pictures of that area? There are a few bolt locations but I can’t find what goes there. It would really help me out.

      I have a Q-Link (Rhino clone) and the fuel injector won't open up and spray. The fuel pump is brand-new and kicks on and primes to the injector but nothing comes out.
      I've cleaned and dielectric greased the electrical plug and the ECU plugs but no change. not sure where to go from here. Any help?
