The C-160 just wasn't running right. Started with new points, plug, filters. I had put an aftermarket carb on it but had found a good Carter N in the correct size so I rebuilt it. Got it started this afternoon and had it running at about half speed to warm it up so I could make the final adjustment to the carb. It purred along for about 4 minutes and just quit. First thought was "out of gas". Looked in the tank and sure enough it was really low so I filled it up. Tried to start it again .....NOTHING Went and rechecked everything ....NOPE Got out the can of starting fluid...NOPE Pulled the plug and noticed the gap was ZERO. Re-gapped and tried again. Same thing again no gap. Pulled the head. Looked normal. When I cycled the engine I noticed that the exhaust valve didn't fully retract. Was able to remove the exhaust valve with two fingers!!!!! Guess I am in the market for a new set of keepers and a few gaskets. The guys at McHenry's Small Engine Love Me
