Hi all, bought a bolens 1556 a few weeks. has the tecumseh HH150, it's my understanding that is the early designation for the OHV150?..i'd been unable to get this thing started, checked spark,,did carb rebuild...took of the valve spring cover and noticed the exaust valve lifter was flopping around in there, not enough tension on the valve spring/rocker arm to keep the lifter in the holder on the end of the rocker arm...took the head of..bingo:yelclap:..valve seat had come disloged from the head and was just sliding up and down the valve itself....here is my question...is there a way to get that seat in without a press?...i'm thinking about sticking the valve seat in the freezer for a couple of days and then try to tap in place with a socket and mallet:smilewink::confuse:....any suggestions?...thanks, Joe

I have heard of that working, however, If it came out once there must've been a reason. I'm by no means an expert which is why I'd probably have someone, a professional, look at it...but that's just me. I'm sure there will be more comments soon by more knowledgeable folks than I. Just my $.02
