I will have some carb questions coming soon but for now I was wondering if someone could enlighten on checking the valve clearances. I was told by a local mechanic that they are set from the factory and they don't need to be adjusted. Is there truth to this? If not any insight on how to check the valve adjustments would be great. Thanks!
The valves don't move much, but they should be checked once in a while. I don't remember what the manual says, but I know it's in the schedule.
p.s. Don't take it to that mechanic.
