Reaction To Worst Buy Report About Bending Of Push Rods In A Briggs & Stratton Engine
Herman Vander Vos, Bozeman, Mont.: “Thanks for printing my ‘worst buy’ report in Vol. 39, No. 6, about the bending of push rods in a Briggs & Stratton engine. Here are some suggestions I received from FARM SHOW readers:
  “1. Run engine at full speed when working. A slow engine overheats. 2. Use synthetic oil because it keeps the engine cooler. 3. Check valve guides. They sometimes work loose. 4. Don’t use fuel with ethanol in it because it can gum up valves. 5. Don’t use stale gas because it can also gum up valves.
  “Thanks to all who responded. I will take their suggestions seriously.”
