I HAVE A 24 HORSE Poulan riding lawnmower pro that keeps bending the rods and it has no power. I was wondering if this could be a timing problem.


It a design problem. Where you adjust valves it happen. You need correct valve adjusted, check valve seats they can move. I've had mine 17 years. One problem, adjusted one valve to tighen. Bent a pushrod

What causes push rods to bend on left bank of a 20 HP V- Twin


Here's some generic answers, not relating to this engine specifically:
  • The timing could be off, so the piston is hitting the valve.
  • A loose pin in the piston could be allowing it to extend too far, shoving on the valve.
  • I guess the valves could need to be adjusted so there's a gap.

Remove the top engine cover and check that the aluminum flywheel key is not sheared, then remove the valve cover and ADJUST the 2 overhead valves. They have to be adjusted periodically on ALL small engines with overhead valves.

Briggs straton ohv on tiller , govener will not work, runs at high speed all the time, starter rope has become extremely hard to pull, will not spin engine.


The hard to pull, will not spin the engine issue could be because you need a valve adjustment. A valve adjustment is critical because it enables the built-in compression release on the Briggs OHV engine to function correctly and enable an easy start; plus of course, smoother running. Remove the valve cover and adjust those valves at 1/4" down past TDC on the power stroke. You WILL see a difference in the engine once you do the adjustment.. Here is a Briggs spec chart which has those values for their engines. Yours should be listed in the OHV engine section.

Here is the Briggs recommended tutorial on HOW to adjust those valves. Scroll down this page to "Adjusting Overhead Valves"

Valve adjustment


To adjust the valves on your Ironhead, the engine must be stone cold. You want to adjust the tappets so that you have zero backlash on the cold engine. As the engine heats up, the cylinder and heads expand upward creating valve lash in the valve train. This is why you want zero lash with the engine cold. If you get the valves set too tightly, it'll hold a valve open ever so slightly and make starting difficult.

To adjust the valves, bring one piston to TDC on the compression stroke, both valves closed with tappets in their lowest position. Pop the pushrod covers loose and loosen the lock nut on one of the tappets. Adjust the top part of the adjuster outwards until the pushrod can no longer be turned with your fingers. Turn the lock nut down but don't lock it yet. Gradually turn the top adjuster downward until you can spin the pushrod with your finger and finish locking the lock nut. Recheck the pushrod to see if it still spins but has no up and down movement. Do the same with the other pushrod on that cylinder. Remember, if's better to get the pushrods adjusted slightly loose rather than slightly tight. It might rattle a bit more but it'll start easier as well. Put the pushrod tubes back together and then do the same thing with the other cylinder.

On any pushrod engine you have to make sure that the timing is correct or nearly correct when first firing it up, if you had the cam in the wrong position the pushrod had no place to go when the cam lobe came around=bend push rod.

Bent push rods are a function of the valve guide coming loose in the head. The valve binds and you end up with a bent pushrod. Fix: Replace head. $94.00
