  9. Gerd Beckmann, PhD says:

    Hello I am doing an upper end rebuild on my 20 HP John Deere C20H engine. It sucked in the bolt that holds the air filter .

    Only a bent push rod resulted. Didn’t get past intake valve luckily and didn’t bend or damage valve seat. Checked run out and all good so lapped valve and bought new push rod and gasket kit

    Can anyone help with various bolts , and also I read conflicting information as to the head gasket embossed numbers up vs down toward piston. Appreciate specs and any advice on rebuild. Plan to replace both shaft seals and relocate oil cooler to frame by having a local hydraulic company make me swaged oil lines to/from oil cooler.

    Thank you.
