Question about John Deere Garden
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. These torques are from the Kohler Service manual for the
There are 5 bolts.... as you look at the bolts there should be 3 on the left side
Bolt 1 is the center (offset bolt)
Bolt 2 is upper right
Bolt 3 bottom left
Bolt 4 upper left
Bolt 5 lower right.
Torque them in the sequence above... to 15 Ft lbs. or 180 inch lbs
reset your torque wrench and then torque them to 30 Ft lbs or 360 inch lbs.
Rocker arms center nuts (called mounting screws) are first torqued to 55 inch lbs then to 100 inch lbs.
Then to set the valve lash you back off the set screw lock nut torque and set the valve lash to .003 - .005 final set screw lock nut torque is 65 inch lbs. Engine must be at TDC i.e piston all the way to the top to make the correct adjustments.
Thanks for using FixYa.
