Briggs valve adjustment

I'm trying to fix an oil leak on my roto tiller. B&S 121412 0152 E1. 6.5 hp

I thought it was just a valve cover gasket, but there is a thin plate under the gasket, then another gasket between that and the head. I believe that second gasket is my leak. Looks like I need to remove the valve springs and whatnot to do so, so I'll need to adjust the valves. If anyone knows the spec and or procedure please let me know. Anything else you can think of speak up! I tried searching for a repair manual and came up empty handed.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks, she's up and running with no more leak. I could see where the bottom gasket was smashed. Cleaned the cooling fins while I was there, boy they really get filled with dirt when you have an oil leak!
