Product Information
Description:
This aluminum OEM push rod is found in your lawn mower. It operates on the camshaft and pushes the exhaust valve open during the exhaust stroke. If you notice that the push rod is bent, it needs to be replaced. A damaged push rod can cause unusual clicking, tapping, or knocking sounds to come from the engine. It can also lead to improper valve operation, resulting in engine misfiring, loss of power, or uneven running. To replace the push rod, you will need to locate and access the valve cover. It is advisable to gather a screwdriver, pliers, a socket set, a wrench set, and a torque wrench for this repair. Please note that the replacement part is sold individually.
