Question about Honda Quincy 17 - Gallon Air Compressor with 5.5 Hp - G15H17PC3B
How do you Install push rod guide on Honda 5.5 160GX Motor?
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...
