you can replace the valves without removing the engine by removing the head first. The valves will come with it, however, the mechanical clunk isn't usually indicative of valve issues. I would remove the head, and push on the piston to see if you threw a rod instead. Sounds like the connecting rod was knocking, then gave way, and now the piston isn't moving at all. Another way to tell, is just to put a screwdriver in the spark plug hole, and turn the engine over by hand and see if the screwdriver moves. If not, you need to tear the engine down and fix your rod issue. If you're lucky, you may find the the end cap bolts came loose, and you can put it back together without too much issue. Otherwise, your engine's probably done.

How do I adjust the valves on a Briggs and Stratton Intek V Twin


Remove the valve covers look up your valve clearance specs turn the engine by hand until the piston is at top dead center then go 1/4 turn past that and then put a feeler gage for the valve clearance you need for that valve and snug up the adjustment nut. Check your oil when your done some oil will spill out when opening the valve cover.

Have a 20hp vanguard on a go-devil long tail motor. engin runs at idle speed then when i put the propeller into the water it stalls. if i pull the choke and give full throttle it will run some and backfire


These engines seem to have problems maintaining the correct valve lash settings. try taking the valve covers off and checking the valve/pushrod clearance.on tdc compression stroke it should be .001-.003 clearance. then check exhaust stroke tdc on exhaust stroke. clearance should be same on the other valve then. hope this cures your problem.
