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

Engine will not turnover

Is it a Briggs or Kohler motor,and since it is a 24 hp I take it it has overhead valves.

3 thousand on the valves semms awful tight unless it has hydrolic lifters.

I always set both intake and exhaust at 5 to7 thousand. will it turn over by hand with no plugs in ?

does it lock up when using starter ? (look at starter shaft bent)

I know this sounds stupid but are both pistons moving freely or is connecting rod blown.

You could have a bent valve stem.

check the connecting rod to the tranny. follow the gear handle and you should find a rod connecting the handle to the axle make sure you're in neutral and adjust the rod until the handle starts to move

This 24hp 48 inch deck craftsman rider was diagnosed by repair facility and said #1 cyl had a bent valve...sounds uncommon. any input, also said was a $400ish repair job

If you are looking to spend about $400 on a repair to a B&S engine you may want to buy a whole new motor instead. I had bent valve push rods, which is very common B&S problem. The parts cost me about $30.00, and a 6 pack to my handy-dandy neighbor to do the fine adjusting. Anyhow before finding the actual problem I was googling around and I was surprised at how cheaply you can buy a new engine. Does not seem to be much of a market for rebuild/exchange on these small engines.
