Exclamation Strange Kohler CV23S question

I have a John Deere L130. I took the air filter off my Kohler CV23S and found a small silver ball bearing inside it. It is about 1/4 inch in diameter. Obviously it came from inside since the cover is sealed. Has anyone got any idea what happened?
Thanks!

Was this in the center of the air filter or between the filter and housing ?

I took the wingnut off the filter then removed the fiter. The ball bearing was lying inside the filter. It would be like setting a ball bearing in the back of the filter and then putting the filter back on.

You don't have any enemies do you ?

There is nothing in this engine that big I can think of can get in there, It would have to been put in there.

The engine runs fine right ?

The engine doesn't come close to starting, it just cranks endlessly until the battery dies.

This bearing fits into the hole in the spit back cup. You'll see what looks like a spot where a hose would fit in the center on the piece that bolts on right over the throat of the carb. This bearing should be pushed all the way into this tube, blocking it. It's not really necessary and you can remove the bearing and leave it out.

That was my first thought and I started to put it in there but it was kind of tight and I didn't want it to get stuck. There was no mention of it in the disassembly diagram. Thanks a lot!

No problem. It's not mentioned in disassembly, or even in a parts diagram because it is supposed to be permanent, and a part of the spitback cup. It's supposed to be stuck in there and never come out, but some do.
