Jeff’s Little Engine Service demonstrates HOW TO ADJUST VALVES on a NOISY HONDA GC 160 5.0 HORSEPOWER Engine. The Honda GC160 motor is on a Pressure Washer that was found at a junkyard. I will be using this engine for a mini bike and do not plan on using the water pump. This is why you see me run the engine without a water supply to the pump. ~ Jeff

  1. The engineers at Honda have thoughtfully provided timing marks on the belt driven wheel to easily find TDC, so there's no need to stick a screwdriver into the cylinder. Also, I've never heard of a combustion stroke before. It's the power stroke. You want to make certain that the engine is cold when adjusting the valves, and that the piston is at TDC on the compression stroke.

  2. LOL.. well the good new is the valve tick is fixed, the bad news well I seized my motor up from running it dry.. Perhaps a PSA is in order, telling people, YO it's a bad idea to run for more than 30 secs without water running through the engine. Afterall, it is what cools the motor.

  3. Gees man chill you bent the hell out of that I just pried on it lightly all around it and it came off good I have a mikuni 35 mm carb on mine an a mother cycle exhaust on it it’s a beast be careful adjusting those there is a compression release in the cam so think about that

  4. Vale Adjustments are critical,,  if too tight, you will burn the Valves ….. Please USe Correct Tools, and  have the Correct alignment of Pistons ..    Also you have to have water for Power washer  when starting ………… D Grade Video

  5. Honda GCV160 on newer 217 push mower. Pull rope is very free and blade spins below as if nothing else is moving inside engine. Blade spins several times longer than if a normal crank. Nothing happening. Could this be a broken cam belt? There is no noise from any moving parts. Thanks.

  6. I have the same exact motor on my mini chopper but it would not start up keep coming up with the video you you know what you're doing
