When do I need to have a valve adjustment? You should have your valve lash inspected at manufacturers recommended intervals. A sure sign that it`s time for a valve lash adjustment is if your engine is making a loud clicking or tapping noise when starting up or if you experience a loss in engine power.
To do that on a four-cylinder, eight-valve engine, use the rule of nine. Counting from the front of the engine if number eight valve is fully open, subtract eight from nine and the answer is one, so adjust the clearance on valve number one. If number six is closed, then adjust number three and so on.
The generally accepted piston-to-head clearance for steel connecting rod engines is 0.040-inch although there are many instances where builders have tightened this clearance to as little as 0.036-inch.
Piston-to-valve clearance criticality is exacerbated by high-compression pistons, large-duration cams, and high rpm. For these reasons, it`s imperative to check piston-to-valve clearance whenever an engine is built, or either the cylinder heads or valvetrain are changed.
To do that on a four-cylinder, eight-valve engine, use the rule of nine. Counting from the front of the engine if number eight valve is fully open, subtract eight from nine and the answer is one, so adjust the clearance on valve number one. If number six is closed, then adjust number three and so on.
Rule of nine

With any given valve open, count what number valve that is from the front. Subtract that number from nine. Whatever number you`re left with is the valve you`re in position to set. So, with number 1 rocker opening its valve, you`ll be setting clearance on (9 minus 1), number 8 valve.

Position the dial indicator on the top of the exhaust-valve retainer and zero the dial indicator. Next depress the exhaust valve. Note the distance traveled. Now subtract the difference in the gasket thicknesses and you should have an accurate measurement of the piston-to-valve clearance.

24 HP B&S ENGINE HAS compression lock up when at first turn over. I have to turn the flywheel by hand past compression . DO i have a decompession valve problem and how do I repair this ?
ANSWER : Usually a valve adjustment will remedy this problem. The compression release is built into the valve train. If the gap is too great, the compression release will not function properly and you will be trying to start the engine under full compression and the starter motor will not do that. Without knowing the model no. of the engine it is difficult to determine what the valve adjustment is for your application. You would be safe to set both at .004? You may want to contact a local dealer or Briggs website once you get the engine model no. to get the exact specs. I will say that in worse case scenarios, the compression link brakes on the camshaft and no matter how you adjust it, it’s not going to help, but again that is rare. That problem of course involves replacing the camshaft. Hope this helps in some way.

HOW TO SET VALVES – Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor
ANSWER : If that’s a Briggs & Stratton engine, try this:Valve adjustment for 28 and 31 Series B&S OHV engines done with engine cold.The best thing to do is buy an Overhaul Manuel for this series of engine,between $15 – $20..Remove the valve cover. Remove the spark plug and turn the engine to TDC(Top Dead Center). Now some people will say that there are 2 TDCs on 4stroke engines. While the piston does come to top twice per combustioncycle, the TDC referred to in all 4 stroke overhaul manuals, whether auto orlawnmower, is when piston is at the top after compression stroke. Turn theengine in the normal direction of rotation, watch the rocker arm action todetermine when the Intake Valve, the bottom valve, has just closed, use a screw driver in sparkplug hole to feel when piston is coming up and then at top. (A better ideais a long pencil with an eraser, put the eraser end in spark plug hole) Per B&Sinstructions, continue turning engine until the piston has receded ¼” downpast TDC. To do this, put a mark on screw driver (or pencil) ¼” above highest pointreached to tell when piston has receded ¼”. You will need a torques headscrew
driver bit for the locking screw on tappets. I would check to see that
the Rocker Arm Studs are still tight in the head, they sometimes work
loose.The proper setting is Intake Valve – .003 – .005″, Exhaust Valve – .005 -.007″. Use a flat feeler gauge between the Rocker Arm face and the ValveStem.
These settings are critical as the Intake setting controls the
operation of the Compression Release. I usually have to make 2 – 3
attempts before I am satisfied with the setting. When you think you
have the proper clearance, take a hold of the Rocker Arm and move it by
hand, side to side, etc, as much as you can and recheck the clearancesetting. The nut must be held while Locking Screw is torqued to 60 inchlbs. I recheck the clearance setting again here. I would re-torque the head bolts while you are there.I recommend removing and reversing the Intake Valve Push Rod when adjustingthe valves. If you remove the Aluminum Intake Valve Push Rod, you will see aworn area down a little ways from the Rocker Arm end. This is from riding ona fiber support rub block and the aluminum push rod will eventually bend orbreak. Both ends are the same and reversing will prolong the life of thepush rod.Note: IF you remove the push rod or any other rocker arm components, thereis a cap that sits on top of each valve stem, take care that you do notdislodge and lose the cap. It is between this cap and the rocker arm thatyou actually take your clearance reading but you will not notice there is acap normally. (Apparently, from the Overhaul Manual, ALL engines do not havethis cap)Replace valve cover with new gasket, torque valve cover to 60 inch lbs.,replace spark plug.

Ran out of fuel just as tractor came to a stop in the yard. Have tried to bleed lines but pump lever doesn’t seem to make any difference or have any resistance behind it. What do you think?
ANSWER : When a diesel runs out of fuel … my friend … it takes a lot of effort to get the air out of the lines. Keep doing what you are doing … keep grinding on the battery … don’t kill it or the starter … and, as my daddy told me, ‘let this be a lesson to you … don’t let your diesel run out of fuel!’

I’m sorry you ran out of fuel … it will rujn again.
