Have you experienced your lawn mower not stating or having low power? And when you or the repair shop checks into it you find that one of your pushrods has bent? In this video we show what causes a pushrod to bend and we explain what can be done to prevent it from happening again. REMEMBER, HEAT IS THE BIGGEST KILLER OF ANY INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE!! That is true with lawn mower engines, car & truck engines, motor cycle engines, boat engines, etc. Be sure to take the time to make sure your cooling system is working properly. This is even more important in air cooled engines such as the ones found in most lawn mowers. Take the time to remove the shrouds every year before you start mowing to make sure that no mice or anything else has got in there and built a nest or chewed through any wires or hoses. A valve guide coming loose and causing a bent pushrod is minor compared to having a mouse build a nest in your cooling fins and having fuel leak from the fuel line that they chewed through which could be absorbed by the mouse nest and cause a fire hen the engine gets hot. Bottom line is keep your engine clean and it will last you longer, cost you less money, and less headaches.
