Briggs & Stratton

Hello Folks, I have a 12 hp B&S engine,its on a statesman riding mower. This engine has quit running 4 times,,each time its the same problem,one of the valves keeper comes of & the pring has no tension so valve quits working. I know someone else must have seen this problem & Im hoping they can tell me how to fix it. I put it(the keeper) back on & it will run for a month or all summer. I put a new one on it one time & it lasted longer than any other but still failled! HELP!!!

It sounds to me like the valve itself may be the problem. If the "catch" on the stem that the keeper catches on is worn, it will eventually let the keeper pop off.
