My Garden Tractor will not start. It has been suggested the valves may need adjusting. It is a 917.274951 with a Kohler engine Model No. CV624-65577 does this sound like a common problem/fix for these engines

  1. Thank you for your question. A valve problem would most likely be the last possible cause of your problem. I suspect the problem is either gas or spark. I would suggest you start by removing the spart plug and see if you get any spark when you try to start the unit. You should also be able to tell if any fuel is reaching the spark plug. Start with the spark and fuel and then we will see if you need to talk about the valves.
