I have a Tecumseh LEV 100, manufactured in 1998. The camshaft sheared off about 1/2" from the intake lobe. I wonder what caused this- if there was some stress on the metal or if the metal just gets old and weak. There was plenty of new oil, RPMS were right, valve was not stuck; it just sheared off when running normally.
Thanks for any help.
