briggs and stratton 17hp ohv valve adjustments

barber2212September 2, 2009

I was wondering if anyone could give me directions on how to properly re-set the valves. My mower is having a hard time starting and after reading the questions in the forum it seems like that is the problem. Could somebody please help
