Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
What could cause the inlet valve pushrod to keep bending,it is a kawasaki 15hp engine,valve does not appear to be sticking as you can push it in by hand. does anyone have any idea what it could be ?
It is one of two problems - your engine uses a cam with a plastic gear - this gear has a tendency to move - it will probably need replacement . there is also a chance that the valve seat is coming loose (overhead valve ) which keeps the valve open - check the distance of the valve stems to make sure they are both out the same distance if they are not then when you put a new pushrod in and adjust it the valve will be pushed too far and hit the piston in turn bending the pushrod
