Kohler K91

Kohler 91 RT Serial # 622351 Spec # 31600A




Poured new gas in the beast, opened the 'T' thing and the glass sediment bulb filled up but then leaked around the top of the bowl. After about 5 tries of this I removed the 'T' thing, needle valve? Let gas run for a few seconds then screwed it back in.

Not sure why that worked but the bowl doesn't leak anymore and it started after maybe 10 pulls and now runs like a top. Went out today and it fired on the first pull and started on the second.

Question: on the needle valve is a small gasket near the end, and it felt quite crumbly, dry. Could I just slip a small O-ring on there and the same on the top of the sediment bowl? I've found a carburetor kit but nothing about the bowl and needle valve.

Thanks

I can't say for sure without looking at it, but usually o-rings don't work well where regular gaskets are normally used.

On the bowl I think that is a gasket, it is pretty hard and brittle. On the needle valve it may have been a O-ring, not sure.
