SOURCE: need wiring diagram for kohler 12.5 engine and

A FREE download of the entire Kohler Service Manual for your engine is available as of 1-29-2010 on the net in the form of a pdf. I don't know how long it will remain available but as of today you can still download it allowing you to reference the area of your concern using the address; This pdf contains the entire Service manual for your engine. However, it is 147 pages long and if you don’t start with at least a half full cartridge it may drain your black ink cartridge. I downloaded this Service Manual for my Kohler 12.5 engine to help me fix a charging problem and it was a bargain because the download was FREE except for the ink and 147 pages of paper.

make sure you have the correct plugs for it. spark plugs that are too short will cause a condition like that. make sure your air filter and fuel filter isnt clogged.

The hard to pull, will not spin the engine issue could be because you need a valve adjustment. A valve adjustment is critical because it enables the built-in compression release on the Briggs OHV engine to function correctly and enable an easy start; plus of course, smoother running. Remove the valve cover and adjust those valves at 1/4" down past TDC on the power stroke. You WILL see a difference in the engine once you do the adjustment.. Here is a Briggs spec chart which has those values for their engines. Yours should be listed in the OHV engine section.

Here is the Briggs recommended tutorial on HOW to adjust those valves. Scroll down this page to "Adjusting Overhead Valves"

How do i fix my ariens lawn mower

Does sound like the the throttle control govener linkage is either in need of adjusting, The throttle control govener linkage is the part that connects the throttle to the internal engine part a mechanizum that will activate the throttle when the engine is put under a load, to keep the engine from stalling and to increase the RPM Rotations per minute of the engine when their is a load on the engine, by advancing the throttle control in the intake manifold . Or the linkage is binding and not activating properly ! Check to see if the throttle plate does move freely and is not stuck.and that the wire type linkage is connected to the throttle plate !

Coleman powermate plus 1750, changed gasoline, spark plug, oil. cannot get it to start/run

check the carborator see if the butterfly valves or closed, than see if the govener can move back and forth and than go farther and if you move the throttle will the govener butterfly valves move. if that is stuck move it or use some lubricant and there should be 2 linkages, 1 inbetween the throttle and the govener, and 1 inbetween the govener and the carborator.

Can the govener be removed from the engine

For most newer vehicles, it is programmed into the ECU (computer). Look into a performance chip or Apexi controller to unlock your car's true stock potential.
