I got a JD 214 that I am restoring. It was a rust bucket.
Got the rust and paint removed and repaint.
I started working on the K321 hp 14 motor. Took the head off the the intake valve was stuck up. Tapped it lightly and it was free. Clean the outside of the motor, then removed the breather and look at the springs.
The exhaust looked okay, but the intake spring is broken into several pieces.
What would cause the the spring to break into several pieces?
I have worked on several Kohler motor and this is a first for me.
I have not removed the intake valve at this time, so I do not know the condition of the valve.
but it does move freely. the valve looks like it like it does sets okay, so I think the valve is not bent.
Thanks for your ideas and input.
