Hi, Thanks everyone for the valve specs. This is the push rod problem. When my friend took the engine apart the push rods fell out. One is aluminum and one is steel and he does not know which is intake and which is exhaust. Thanks again, Dave

intake is alum push rod actually u should put it in backwards as the alum rod wears thin in one spot and bends - so if you flip it backwards, it lasts twice as long. Valve gap is critical for the compression release to work otherwise she wont crank, wears out the drive gear and you think its got a bad battery or starter problems.
