Have john deere d120 ride single cyl B&S 21hp they are prone to head gasket failure after 50 hrs.Would having the head retensioned reduce this happening would valve clearances need rechecking. Thanks

has the head gasket failed already or are you surmising that it will happen soon
having the head studs re-tensioned would help reduce the possibility of it happening as the studs are small in diameter and can stretch and loose tension
it would be advisable to check the valve clearance as B&S valves tend to stretch and that makes start when hot difficult

Depending on hrs used and with all ohv engines check valve clearance. If they are hydraulic valves then no need. I don't understand why the owner manual doesn't always tell the customers that needs to be done. That will cause loss of power and other issues.

Just maybe, since this is an OHV engine, the valve lash needs adjusting. Your are possibly seeing the results of poor clearance when the machine heats up and the metal valve train expands, Then after cooling, the train is within tolerance again, allowing the engine to start and run. Check into adjusting those valves.
