was born to pimp tractors
I was working on a friends lawn tractor today that has a vertical shaft 18hp Tecumseh V-Twin engine on it. My friend said it was only firing on one cylinder well after checking the basics I pulled the valve cover off... the rocker had popped off the pushrod but was still attached to the rocker arm stud... I pulled the pushrod out and see that its bent. what could make the pushron bend? could very low oil level make the pushrod bend cause the oil level wasn't even reading on the dipstick?
