Valve adjustments have to be done right in order for the engine to run properly. Since this information is model number specific please submit the model number for the tractor. Just click on reply to continue the thread. The engine number you provided does not seem to bring up any information, you may want to re-verify that number. Expert response time is 24-48 hours.

The settings will need to be between .004-.006 on both intake and exhaust. I have always set them at .004 when the engine is warm and rarely have any issues doing so.

I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a nice day!

Both the intake and exhaust valves should be between .004-.006 (4 thousandths and 6 thousandths).

It is generally best if you can get the engine to start to let it run for a couple of minutes then do your valve adjustments. If you cannot get the engine to start beforehand, set them to within those specs then start the machine and let it warm up and do the adjustments again once it's warm.
