so i was adjusting the valves on my bolens g14 with the teccy oh140 and i broke a rocker arm. the intake valve rocker arm. does anyone know where i can find one new or used for a decent price? it had a little valve tap i was addressing and i dug my own grave.

1st Welcome to GTt! JB will not work on a rocker arm Sorry. Quick question what are the numbers for your oh140? If it is 160018B then the arms are part# 33485, and so far Sears parts direct has them for $50. If you get me #'s I will do more searching for you. :smile1:

ill get them in the morning. theres a whole setup on ebay for an OH 160 and he says it fits many OH and HH engines. so if the price doesnt go crazy ill bite the bullet and redo everything. plus my one push rod is slightly bent i think.

yeah hopefully the seller isnt heckbent on a high price for it and buys it at the end with a second account. i think that happens alot especially when you see the same item posted a week later from the same seller.

yeah my friend does it. but 100 is a bit too much for me to spend when i only need 1 maybe 2 parts in the package. if i needed a head and a few parts id probly go for it.

tgguy, I know your pain, I did the exact same thing on my H14 two weeks ago, called a guy and he gave me a junk motor he had. rocker arms are good. I only needed the one. Have the other one if you still need it. Free to me,free to you. PM me and we will work out the shipping details

ok well i installed the rocker arm. it has a different design then mine but it still works great. i used my new feeler gauge set to adjust everything and i took her for a joy ride in the snow. what a machine.
