The Kohler service manual calls for a . 040″ plug gap.
Ignition Spark Plug Gap 0.76 mm (0.030 in.)
The gap setting is different for each vehicle but most are somewhere between 0.028″ and . 060″. Consult the owner`s manual or Champion ® catalog to find the recommended setting for the vehicle you`re working on.
Symptoms: As the gap begins to close beyond some rather broad limits, the engine will start to misfire under hard acceleration. As the gap closes even further, the engine will start to miss at normal road speeds.
Back in the day, cars needed regular maintenance on the ignition system. The process was referred to as a “tune-up,” and it nearly always included changing the points, plugs, and condenser. “When everything is working exactly as it should, the points should be changed every 8,000 to 10,000 miles,” Nobles said.

Lawn mower cranck but wont start…
ANSWER : Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.

Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.

Can i replace a 17.5 hp mower engine with a 18 hp engine?
ANSWER : You will need to shop carefully. That is not too much of a power jump to worry about ruining axles, gears and the like. BUT, do be mindful that you have to shop an engine to match two very important criteria:Bolt patterns and spacing: This is how the engine will attach to the mower’s deck/chasis.Output shaft length, diameter, taper and if it’s keyed or non-keyed.If looking to just replace a tired old iron horse, similar make and model to the original with slight power upgrade cannot be helped – but the bolts and shafts will be pretty much spot on.

I have trouble starting a toro walk behind mower
ANSWER : All, I thought my carb was shot, so I replaced it. Still, start but no run (and had to use starting fluid). THEN!!! I noticed the spring to the “rev limiter” (just below and towards rear of carb) was not “tight”. The stupid bracket that holds the end of that spring had been bent down ~1/16″ and that caused all this heartache. CHECK YOUR REV LIMITER!!!
