I replaced my intake valve pushrod on my craftsman 17.5 HP tractor. It was working fine but stopped because the pushrod bent.
Now it won't start because it won't spin fast enough. The battery is practically new and the starter motor was working fine before.
Anyone have any clue as to the cause of this problem?

First, why did the rod bend, stuck valve? That needs to be investigated and rectified, then the valve clearances correctly adjusted.
