My kubota GS 160 need both valves shaved. Apparently Briggs use .010 on both and tecumseh use one at .008 and one at .012 so I'm assuming that's roughly within the guidelines as can't find specs.

I have a qustion regarding Mercury Tracer 94 1.9l If timing belt breaks does teh vaulve have clearance or no clearance. Thank you for your help.. Alina

Hi Alina,
From what I've been able to find, there were two versions of this engine. One had square teeth on the belt and another had round teeth. If it is the one with round teeth on the timing belt, it is an interference engine and the valves most likely will be damaged if the belt breaks.
Hope this helps,
