I think he was talking about the diagram with the overhead cam that was posted up!!
Yeah I saw that after my post. I have a habbit of scrolling past anypost that are written by topsites!
I am talking about topsites diagram picture. I don,t see lifter or push rods. This is some kind of overhead setup. Yes what this original poster has posted is a push rod type motor. He didn't post what type of motor it was so I don't know what kind of lifters it has. It is either hydralic or a solid lifter set up. I do know about engine as I used to build race motors.
That's a good one!!
I took off the head. Looks like the exhaust valve is stuck, but I don't know why. It doesn't look bent. Any ideas what I should do?
For the curious folk, Kawasaki 17 HP FC540V-FS15.
Here is an image...
I took the valve out. Valve looks fine, but the area that the valve is broken.
Will I need a new head?
Dont know if I have ever seen that one before but yes you will need a new head.
Nah, just use a die grinder to smooth it out, ream the guide and knurl the valve! Then sell it with the description, "fresh valve job".
The valve wasn't bent at all????
Or... ya could heat the head up and drive out the old guide and install a new one. Prolly need a new valve and cut the seat, or you might get by with just lapping......good as new!
