Hey guys got another deere here that i picked up for 200 came with a snowblower and some chains and weights. I plan to use it for my 216 if i can't get this one going.
Problem it had was the motor just turned over and kept on spinning freely. I can turn the key and attempt to start it everythint turns over but there is just no compression. The mower will keep on spin after i turn the key off, it spins like it's just free in there.
I was thinking piston and cylinder would be scorched, but after getting into it the piston and cylinder don't look bad. I did notice that the exhaust valve would just turn inside the head there. I mean i grabbed it with 2 fingers and could spin the exhaust valve. The spring didn't seem excessivly loose when i went to pull the keepers out, but I"m guessing I have an issue with the valve or the spring right? the intake valve is as it should be, it doesn't spin in the head like this one does.
Would it be worth getting a new valve and spring for this or could i have some more serious issues down at the bottom end? LIke i said the crank seems to spin just fine there is just no compression, unless something down there came apart and that's why it's just spinning? THe flywheel does spin when it turns over. When i picked this up there was no oil on the dipstick, that's what had me worried about it. There's no shards or anything that looks like it's been burnt up though.
thanks in advance fellas!
