Troy Bilt with honda 160cc valve cover (Question)




I am trying to learn how to adjust the valves on my Honda
160 cc lawnmower engine so I took the four small bolts off the valve cover but it seems to be stuck or still attached somewhere, I was hoping someone would be familiar with this situation and maybe share some advice. I am attaching a photo of the engine I have. Thank you

They often stick. A gentle tap with a rubber or plastic hammer or the plastic handle of a screw driver will pop it loose. Don't hit it so hard to cause a dent or deform it. If that does not work you can also use a flat blade screw driver between the cover and engine to gently pry the cover loose. Make sure you don't tear the gasket or scratch the cylinder housing.

They are attached with Honda bond a type of silicone Honda recommends that the cover be replaced if removed.
