I have worked on many gx160 engines and have found that the most economical way to repair an engine with worn valves/guides is to replace the complete head with a clone usually available on ebay for around 60 bucks or so. A honda gx runs perfect with a new clone head. To repair the head properly you need special tools to cut/shape re-seat etc. Then when you consider the cost of honda parts and the chance of making an error, well even the best small engine mechanics make bad calls. However on the other hand, there is great pleasure in rebuilding an engine that has given you great service. Small engine parts/supply outlets like Rotary inc. sell valve guide cutter kit that comes with instructions. You should also use new valves and cut the valve seats.(another kit) If all you want is a great running motor, consider the clone head. Good Luck on your project.

Do you want to replace the valve guide or push rod guide?

If its the push rod guide, loosen the 10mm nut on top of the 14mm nut and remove both of them and the valve rocker...now get a long deep 10mm socket and remove the valve rocker stud on both valves.remove the plate take note of which way the plate goes, reassemble in reverse and reset the valve clearance to .15mm intake and .20mm ex. make sure the piston is at TDC and the valves are closed if you dont know if they are closed turn engine over slowly and you will see the valves rock (intake thenex straight away) then turn engine over 1 turn....

keep the valves clearance correct and you wont have this problem..Check the rocker for wear on the part that pushes the valve open it should be flat if not the valve may be US as well...

Install push rods


Hi Anonymous, assuming yor stock push rods are still in the engine, remove the clip at the top of the outer push rod tube with a screw driver. Lift up the spring cup and squirt some silicone spray or WD-40 on the o-ring, then take needle nose pliers and slide down the inner push rod tube, do this to all of them. Next you can either remove primary cover to access crankshaft extention bolt or jack up rear end to clear wheel, remove spark plugs, and put tranny in high gear to facilitate turning over engine. Rotate engine so that the RE (rear exhaust) push rod is all the way up the remaing three should spin freely. Lift up the bottom of outer pushrod tube, of one that spins, as high as it will go and secure it with a clothes pin. With some bolt cutters break and remove stock push rod. Repeat process for the other 2 that spin freely, then rotate the engine so RE pushrod is at it's lowest point and spins freely then remove it. I don't know what brand your adjustables are so lay them out on your bench, they should be all the same length with the adjusters all the way in. If you have two that are longer these would be exhaust push rods and the two shorter ones will be intake pushrods. Refering to manufacturers instructions you should be able to install new push rods as one piece with adjusters all the way in, or you may have to disassemle and install piece by piece, it happens sometimes. Refer to instructions for complete turns, it's either 3 or 4 usually 4. Since the RE lifter is all the way down as far as it will go on the base circle of the cam start with that one first. WARNING!!!!! before you install any push rod make sure there is an o-ring in the head and one in tappet block. Slide push rod into tube and install, back out the adjuster until it just starts to touch the lifter then with wrenches back out an additional 3 or 4 turns, if you are not sure about the number call the manufacturer. Lock the jam nut and wait a few minutes until the lifter bleeds down and you can spin the push rod freely. WARNING!!!! never attempt to rotate engine unless the push rod you are installing spins freely. OK now lets move onto the next push rod the RI (rear intake) rotate engine so lifter is at it's lowest point on the base circle and install and adjust the push rod, wait for it to spin freely and then do the other 2 in the same manner. When you are finished some push rods will spin freely while others won't depending on cam position this is normal. Now rotae engine slowly 2 or 3 complete revolutions to make sure you have no valve to valve problems or valve to piston problems. If you do re-doo the adjustment on the offending cylinder. When you are comfortable every thing is ok extend inner push rod tube and install clips, replace spark plugs take bike out of gear and repace primary or lower the bike. With fingers crossed and a silent prayer to the Harley Gods fire it up, there may some slight lifter tick in the first minute or two but will eventually stop when you take it for a test ride. When you get back check it for leaks. Thus ends my modified version of War and Peace. Good luck

Replace window motor on 1997 del sol


Remove the door handle with one #2 phillips screw, push forward. Push the 2 plasic clips on the release handle and the lock rod by rotating them away from the open end of the clip (clockwise for drivers side, counterclockwise for passenger side). Pull the lock rod and relese out of the clips. Remove the phillips screw in the bottom of the door grab handle. Remove the small black plastic piece on the upper forward corner of the door panel. Remove door panel, should be aproximately 10-12 clips. Once off, you'll see the window motor. Remove the outer window trim. Yes, you WILL break all the clips. I've not had much sucess no matter how careful I am. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the window from the window regulator. You'll see 2 white plastic wedges with 10mm head bolts in them. Pull the window out of the track. If needed, loosen or remove the rear guide track. There also are two 10mm bolts holding the guide rail in. Remove the windoe regulator and motor assembly with (I believe) 3 10mm bolts. Once on the bench, remove the motor from the regulator and reinstall!

Briggs motor bent one push rod


This is a vary commom problem with an Intek engine, I have a similar 21HP engine with similar issue. The valve is sticking in the valve guide, the valve guide usually slides in or out. If out, the guide can jamb against the keepers and not allow full valve opening, thus bending the rod. Fix the loose guide and tight valve before you put in another rod, or you will soon be putting more rods in. I think B&S should help everyone on this one. If the guide goes in, it can cause the valve not to close fully and cause a no run condition.

Honda GX160 Valve Guide Displaced


You may not need to replace the head but a new valve guide may be called for. That will require the proper tool for installing it, so it runs in line with the valve stem.

24 hp engine. one bent push rod, second rod missing lost some power, no other problems


This happened to me,the engine sat for some time and the valves were varnished with stale fuel,they stuck in the guides.This bent the push rod and it was only running on one cylinder.The missing push rod worked its way into the crankcase through an oil passage . I took the engine sump of and found the push-rod. I cleaned removed the head,cleaned the valves and guides replaced push rods and gasket and it ran fine after that.I use fuel stabilizer now,it keeps the varnish from forming.

  • The front seat back head restraint is adjustable from its normal position to a raised position of approximately 25 mm (1 inch).
