hey guys! checking in again because I've got problems,
JD 155C with briggs 25hp model model 445777 engine,
This is a flood rehab
I received a 2006 JD 155c from my mom in Houston. it had a briggs 25 HP 445777 engine Unfortunately it was involved in the flood there last month. It ran fine before the flood but was not run or attempted to run since (the battery was dead) I'm a novice at best so any information please...
it's been running great the last few years, an occasional slow cranking that normally I can jumpstart through and get it running,
without the spark plugs in, it spins fast, this weekend I decided to try to adjust them again, this is the third time in about 5 years,
I adjusted the valves to .004 (the manual said .005) at 1/4" past TDC,
it did attempt to spin a revolution or two before stopping but no start or even close to fast enough to start,
Wondering if my cam lobe is shot, I don't see the momentary engagement that is shown on some you tube videos of the rocker dropping for a second, ??
any other advice, not really experienced enough to tear the engine down to confirm the cam lobe,
