Valves out of adjustment is not likely, the starter needs to be getting 12V when cranking, if its not getting full voltage then you can not expect it to crank at full speed. If the starter spins faster when the solenoid switch is jumpered the solenoid may not have good electrical connections or it may be bad. Do not adjust the valves at this time for this symptom. Valves should be adjusted by a pro at about 250 hours of operation.

My kubota GS 160 need both valves shaved. Apparently Briggs use .010 on both and tecumseh use one at .008 and one at .012 so I'm assuming that's roughly within the guidelines as can't find specs.
