My father in law's JD 420 lost a screw holding the air cleaner housing to the carb.  It got sucked into the intake & lodged under the intake valve.  I took my JD 430 to him today, then brought his 420 to my place so he could mow while I got his tractor fixed.  His air cleaner housing was also all busted up where it bolts to the carb, so I have a good used housing to replace it.  The valve & seat suffered no damage at all from the screw under the valve, as my FIL shut her down as soon as it stopped hitting on that side.

Its a good thing your father in law cut the tractor off, since a screw down in the cylinder would have really beautified his engine!

Yes, and it did no damage at all to that engine either.

I was worried about that 'loose screw' issue on the GTV so I made a small screen (out of metal window screen) to fit. Don't have to worry about the engine swallowing a screw now!

I guess those screws should be checked and some removable grade thread locker put on them. Pretty sad when a 2cent screw  lunches an expensive engine!

I use star tooth washers and blue Loctite myself and never had an issue.  You might notice the engine has been upgraded to a 24hp Onan Performer.  Rain coming in, so may not get to put my sawdust in the stalls.  Darn, might have shop time!  :smilewink:

Well, looks like definite shop time if it lets up enough to run down to the shop!  Pouring right now.  The red line has scooted over me since the screen shot.  Literally pouring!
