I have a 316K with the K341 Kohler engine. It recently started surging pretty badly off & on. It seems like the governor is hunting. It had been sitting a few weeks before this started. We cleaned the carb up & shot some cleaner thru it & then my brother adjusted the carb with the air cleaner off & it seemed to go away, but as soon as we put it all back together it started doing it again. After sitting another week I finally got back to it & now not only is it surging, but it also only runs with the choke most of the way out. I'm leaning towards taking the carb bowl off & making sure there isn't any junk floating around plugging things & changing the fuel filter as the next move. Does that sound reasonable? Any suggestions? Thanks!
