Hi 1st remove the rocker cover and spark plug
hold a long skinny screwdriver down the plug hole and wind the engine by hand until you get top dead centre (NOTE WATCH ROCKERS) first the intake valve will open then close when it closes the piston should be coming up to top dead centre and both valves should be closed and the rocker loose setting should be 0.004 thou you need to undo the locking screw down the centre of the adjusting nut then you can adjust to setting, (DONT FORGET TO DO THE LOCKING SCREWS BACK UP) reassemble

If it has a float type carb, open it 1.5 turns. If it has a diaphram open it one turn. If it has a Walbro carb, there is no adjustment. Once you get the engine started you may adjust the carb to fine tune. Open until it begins to lose RPM's then close until it starts to lose RPM's. Return to a point between the two. Good luck...Lee

I believe this does have comression release. Make sure you're rotating the motor in the correct direction, as I think the compression release only works in one direction. Adjust the valve to .004 with the piston at TDC make sure it's on the power stroke. Turn the motor till intake opens, then when you continue to rotate crank, unitl valve closes and piston gets back to TDC. Adjust both valves to .004. Then do the other cylinder the same way.

The 24-valve overhead system is a "low-maintenance"
design. Routine adjustments are no longer
necessary, however, measurement should still take
place when trouble-shooting performance problems,
or upon completion of a repair that includes removal
and installation of the valve train components or
injectors.
(1) Disconnect battery negative cables.
(2) Remove cylinder head cover (Refer to 9 -
ENGINE/CYLINDER HEAD/CYLINDER HEAD
COVER(S) - REMOVAL).
(3) Using the crankshaft barring tool #7471-B,
rotate crankshaft to align damper TDC mark to
12:00 o'clock position.
(a) If both number one cylinder rocker levers are
loose, continue to next step.
(b) If both number one clylinder rocker levers
are not loose, rotate crankshaft 360 degrees.
(4) With the engine in this position, valve lash can
be measured at the following rocker arms: INTAKE
1-2-4 / EXHAUST 1-3-5. Measure the valve lash by
inserting a feeler gauge between the rocker arm
socket and crosshead (Fig. 32). Refer to VALVE
LASH LIMIT CHART for the correct specifications. If
the measurement falls within the limits, adjustment/
resetting is not necessary. If measurement
finds the lash outside of the limits, adjustment/resetting
is required.
VALVE LASH LIMIT CHART
0.152 mm ( 0.006 in.)
MIN.
0.381 mm (0.015 in.)
MIN.
0.381 mm (0.015 in.)
MAX.
0.762 mm (0.030 in.)
MAX.
note:
If measured valve lash falls within these
specifications, no adjustment/reset is necessary.
Engine operation within these ranges has no adverse
affect on performance, emissions, fuel economy or
level of engine noise.
(5) If adjustment/resetting is required, loosen the
lock nut on rocker arms and turn the adjusting screw
until the desired lash is obtained:
² INTAKE 0.254 mm (0.010 in.)
² EXHAUST 0.508 mm (0.020 in.) Tighten the
lock nut to 24 Nm (18 ft. lbs.) and re-check the valve
lash.
(6) Using the crankshaft barring tool, rotate the
crankshaft one revolution (360°) to align the
damper TDC mark to the 12 o'clock position.
(7) With the engine in this position, valve lash can
be measured at the remaining rocker arms: INTAKE
3-5-6 / EXHAUST 2-4-6. Use the same method as
above for determining whether adjustment is necessary,
and adjust those that are found to be outside of
the limits.
(8) Install the cylinder head cover (Refer to 9 -
ENGINE/CYLINDER HEAD/CYLINDER HEAD
COVER(S) - INSTALLATION).
(9) Connect the battery negative cables.

Need to find out how to adjust vavles


If your engine is an overhead valve Briggs. You need to:
Remove valve cover
Locate rocker arms. Upper is exhaust, Lower is intake.
Loosen the lock screw in the center of the adjusting nut.
With engine at TDC and both valves closed adjust both valves by turning the adjusting nut to obtain proper clearance. Once set, tighten the center lock screw.
Valve adjustment specifications vary from model to model. Would need more engine information to get you that or it can be found online.
Reinstall valve cover, make sure gasket did not get damaged.
Adjust valves on a "cold" engine.
