    I am getting a lot of valve noise in my B&S 17HP OHV. Can someone please tell me the clearances on the valves? Also should it be at TDC or what?
    Been a long time since I adjusted valves. I already have a new gasket for the cover.
    Thanks in advance

    It is better to have numbers posted, But all single Briggs OHV engines in that size range use the same procedure and specs. which are listed below.
