I've pulled bigger engines valves easily with my compresser and found the clips, etc. I can't seem to get the caps of these valves to pull down or together when I use presser on it. I can slip into just the spring and it will move, but caps just stay there. Look like lighter tinny ones, not the usual heavy metal. Do these just slide off, no clips? I can't seem to move them, but it is tight in there and I was tired and gave up for today. Guess I'll be pulling came out, just to be able to replace the PTO
side main bearing in case. I've never pulled them before. Looks like maybe a clip and push inside? Thinking I will be needing a crank, might be bent, plus messed up from rod. Loose anyway, doesn't look that scarred or nothing. I think someone messed with it, tried to smooth for a new rod, which it looks like it has and new piston, then just threw it together thinking it will be ok. It did run, but had knocking at diff times of loads. Is a crank for these smaller engines hard to find? Doesn't need to be new one, just good one. This piston says it is .30 over. That must be about the limit then isn't it? Gonna take to shop and have him look at all the parts and see just what is gonna be saveable or not. Not looking to good to me.
