That's an L-head engine, valves are effectively non-adjustable.... One grinds the stems or pushrods... Usually not the issue. First would be to check for spark when it is hot. Otherwise, I'd suspect the mixture is a touch lean perhaps. J

I have a push lawn mower with a B&S engine 123K02-0185-E1. It is 13 years old but I maintain it very well. Starts right up when cold. And it runs fine. However I have an awful time starting it again when it's hot. Sometimes takes 5 or 10 minutes

If they are just gummy you should be able to clean. If the plastic sleeve in the coil has worn or warped then you are probably out of luck.

Double bed, she would get between us and with her back on one of us, push the other with her feet. We are both on the edge , barely. Nice bed warmer in winter, however.

What she said, but my experience has been that once they get gummy, it is time for a new one. They just never seem to work right after attempting a cleaning.
