If you have a 24 hp briggs stratton intek v twinm here's how.

There is an adjustment nut on the valve rockers underneath the valve covers remove valve covers, and spark plugs, do one cylinder at a time, turn engine over by hand until top valve is completly pushed open, you can now adjust the lower"closed" valve, use a 13mm wrench and #30 torx, loosen jam nut use torx driver and set valve to .004 thousands with feeler guage, hold adjuster in place and tighten jam nut. recheck clearance, then rotate engine till lower valve opens completely and adjust top valve the same way, repeat on other cylinder, there is a good video on youtube or go to www.smalleng
