Can the overhead valves on a 16hp sears craftsman with a kohler engine be the reason why it won't start and if so, can I adjust them

Valve clearances will also effect the decompression valve in the engine, if they are too wide the valve lifter will not work and the battary will not have enough energy to crack the engine.

How do i fix my leaky faucet?

You will need to shut-off the water valves underneath the sink and remove the faucet handle(s). Once you do this, you will see the rubber "seats" which need to be replaced. Just pop them out and replace them with new seats and replace the handle(s). Turn on the valves underneath the sink and your faucet should be all set!

I have a 1993 suzuki katana 600, it has high km's. the valves make alot of noise, people say to do re torque the valves, would you know how tight I sould torque them too?

Either your friends are playing with you or they have no idea at all what they are talking about. There is no such thing as a re-torque of the valves. The valves are not screwed or bolted in place. How can you torque a screw or bolt that does not exist? The valve gap , aka valve lash, may need to be reset but no torque on the valves is possible. If resetting the valves, set the gap at .006 intake and .011 exhaust. There will be a lock nut, (not shown in diagram), on each of the adjuster screws. Your bike has two exhaust valves and two intake valves per cylinder. tombones49_184.gif

Find tdc and adjust valves on a 325 i

With the tappet cover off, rotate the engine in the normal direction of rotation until you see #4 cylinder valves rock - open/close in succession. This will be TDC on #1 - set the valve clearances. Turn the engine until your see #2 valves rock, set #5 valves, turn the engine till #6 valves rock, set # 3 valves, turn the engine until #3 valves rock, set # 6 valves, turn engine till #5 valves rock, set # 2 valves, turn engine till #1 valves rock, set # 4 valves. Once you have located #1 TDC (the second mark in the pulley should be lined up with the cover mark), it is only 60 deg. to get to the next cylinder to set. If you accidentally go past the setting point, go back and approach the setting point again in the direction of engine rotation. When you come to setting # 6 the TDC marks should be aligned again.

I have a 2001 sv 650 it sat for a year i cleaned the carbs out and it till will not start it has a brand new battery

If it sat with the valves or a valve stuck in an open position then the valves will need to be freed up before it will start and run.You can remove the valve cover to see if they are working correctly.

Definitely carb problems. Dieaphrams need to be checked and the carbs need to be synced.
