Hi, thanks for reading this.
A friend of mine is repairing a:
Briggs & Stratton 14.5 HP OHV
and he needs valve specs and info re. push rod positions
Thanks in advance,
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.
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
