B&S 1982 3 1/2 HP Vertical Model 93502-0343-01 Valve Guides
Hi, I have the above engine apart and I want to get the valve guides right. I do not have the tools and I can not find a dealer who wants to work on this engine. I would not call it worn out, as the bore is near perfect; I just want to be certain the guides are good (or good enough). I can move the valves a slight amount side-to-side with the springs out. I do not have enough experience with these to tell if this indicates wear significant enough to warrant renewing the guides. Mu gut feeling is they are good enough for the purpose as this is a "restoration" of a Yazoo mower will will be lightly used if that. Please advise if you can.
