Tecumseh 16hp o-rings on push rod tubes?

Post  Bearcamp on April 9th 2009, 3:11 pm

I have the 16hp apart doing a valve job and it states in the manual where to place the white o-ring. All I have is a round one and another one that's like beveled on one end. Which one goes on which push rod tube or doesn't it matter? Can I just use o-rings from the hardware store cause I can't find the original ones?

I was wrong, it's the chamfer that goes under the valve spring retainer. They say in the manual the white teflon o-ring goes under the valve spring retainer on the exhaust side and the black one under the retainer on the intake side. Well when mine cake off it had 2 black ones, one was a regular o-ring and the other is like beveled. No black and white. If I need these, where can I get them?

That would be a big help but I didn't see them when removing the springs and don't know which goes where. Like I said,,,,One looks like a regular o-ring and the other has a bevel on it. Thanks for the help.
