Remove spark plug
Remove cover from engine that covers the flywheel
Remove rockerarm cover or valve cover
Find TDC (top dead center) by rotating the flywheel by hand and your finger over the spark plug hole as you rotate the flywheel you will feel pressure against you finger at some point then stop.
This is the compression stroke it is called now find a long slim round piece of plastic or plastic ink pen to stick in the spark plug hole (If you are careful a slim screwdriver can be used ) and find the piston top, then slowly rotate flywheel again (cw) as the piston is moving up pushing the plastic up as you rotate the flywheel slowly.
a max. piston up or tdc as you turn you will feel and then the piston starts to go the other way,at that transition this is tdc (piston is on top of stroke) leave it there,,both valves should be closed at that point.
Have a feeler gauge and set the exhaust valve at a loose .002 and the intake a loose .004 be sure engine is cold when valves are adjusted
Feeler gauge goes in between the rocker arm tip and valve stem top for each valve setting.
Note the rocker adjustment at the push rod side of each valve by tightening and loosening to make adjustments,lock your adjustments in place and rotate flywheel a few times and recheck settings

Tory bilt lawn tractor replaced with new battery


What most likely happened is the diaphram in the carberator has burst. It is a simple fix if you take your time, use reliable resources and be patient. The parts can be picked up at the local hardware store.

Troy-Bilt Briggs & Stratton 550 restarting


Troy, Unless you are using old fuel (it breaks down after 1 week) it sounds like you have a faulty spark plug. Replace this first, drain any old fuel and replace with fresh fuel (premium unleaded). A faulty plug will work one minute but then fail like you have described.

I need a diagram to adjust/level the Deck on my 2006 Troy Bilt Lawn Tractor. Do you know where I can find one? Model 13AN77TG766


The adjustment is on the left rear deck hanger. Loosen the 1/2 lock bolt in the center of the large nut, then turn the large nut with a adjustable wrench or socket, if you have one that big, clockwise or counterclockwise to raise or lower that side to equal the right side height.

Need a fuel tank for a Troy Bilt mower


You won't find the fuel tank on MTD's site because it is part of the engine. MTD makes the mower, Briggs and Stratton makes the engine. Get the model and type number off the engine and search Briggs and Stratton's site or post it here and I will tell you the part #. Dwain
