What are the valve settings for my Briggs and Stratton engine?
by Manage My Life

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.

The intake and exhaust should be set to .004-.006". I generally set the valves to .004" and that takes care of any valve related issues.

You can also view the video at the link I've attached below. I adjust the valves the same way the guy does in the link I've attached and I know I've had success with it. Not knocking the other video that was linked, but I've never done them quite like that before.

What are air gap settings for the intake valve and exhaust valve for 18h Briggs and Stratton engine?
by Manage My Life 
April 16th, 2009
Manage My Life
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.

You are going to need to remove the cylinder head to access the push rods. From there you will be able to pull them out. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
