What?? I assume you mean you put in a new rod, piston, and crankshaft? And the lifters are now holding the valves open? To start with, what engine do you have?

Sorry about that , it is a ch730 off a scag turf tiger. And yes rods, piston and crankshaft are new. I actually even put newer heads off of a 20 hp but it did the same thing. we cleaned lifters and i also tried some diferent lifters , though they werent new ones. same thing still.
