Head bolt torque

Could someone tell me the head bolt torque on a Briggs OHV model-31Q777. The best I could find is 165 in-lbs or 13.75 ft-lbs but this doesn't really seem to be enough!

Let me ask you another question- I am replacing the head gasket on this engine, and I noticed the exhaust push rod comes up approx 1/4" but the intake push rod comes up approx 1/8''. Is this normal?

No, it should move more than 1/8 inch. It should be about the same as the exhaust.

Thanks Cheese. I think I'm going to have to disassemble the engine so I can find my trouble, The engine was hard to turn over however it would start and run O.K.. It's a model 31Q777 B&S on a cub cadet. It was blowing oil all over and it had some positive pressure on the crankcase. I pulled the head off and found the head gasket in bad shape between the cylinder ond the valve cavity. I also replaced the breather reed valve (which didn't seem bad).
