Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Hey guys, thanks for the ideas on the rocker arm failure.

I forgot to mention its a Honda GC190 with overhead valves. I am not a very knowledgable mechanic, so I wouldn't even know how to check if the valve spring is binding. I had another engine where the valve stem was sticking in the guide, but that just left the valve hanging open and the motor not getting enough compression to start.

So hopefully my brazing it back together will hold. I added a little extra brass to the area to make it thicker and hopefully stronger.
