I rebuilt a 5 hp Briggs last year. Had to pay the local mower shop $40 to cut the valve seats because I didn't have, nor could I find, the cutting tool required for the job. So, the question is, where can I purchase the valve seat cutting tool?
Thanks for the advice on lapping. I am familiar with the procedure and have the compounds and lapping tool for the job as I've done it many times on automotive engines. However, in this case the condition of the exhaust valve seat required a more aggressive approach. A buddy of mine has a complete set of valve seat grinding stones and pilots but since they are designed for use on larger (auomotive) engines, they were too big for the Briggs.
I to do some small engine work,and race jr dragsters with modyfied alky briggs style 5hp engines, thanks for a new place for small engines, also you may check ebay for the seat cutters just search for neway thats the brand name. see ya Ron Herndon
