    LT150 with valve noise

    I bought a LT150 with the Kohler 15 hp CV15 engine. It has a loud ticking noise which sounds like a loose rocker arm adjustment. I removed the valve cover and there is no adjustment. There is .032 clearance on the intake. It appears the lifter could be bad. Has anyone had experience with this and Can I just pull the head to replace it?

    Thanks
    Greg

    I too am unfamiliar with this engine. But, I'm sure somebody here on the forum will be able to shed some light on this!

    Post Maybe this can help

    I did a JD parts lookup on an LT150 and came up with this.

    I doesn't really show if taking just the head off will give you access to the lifter.

    The LT150 is the replacement for the LT155, both having the Kohler Command 15 hp engine. I have the TM for the LT155, shoot me a pm with your email address and I will send you a copy of it.
