blowing oil

Recommended Posts

i have a 1962 4hp horizontal, replaced the head gasket today, it looks like the oil is getting past the valve seals, is this a do it your self job or are there special tools , i have nothing but time and could get the parts at the local mower shop. i really want to keep the original motor,every thing else seems good. thanks

Thanks to Terry9 for his long distance diagnosis,the exhaust valve was so carboned up that it didn't seat,the oil was being drawn up the valve stems by intake stroke vaccuum.
