HotWiredGSP :

3.5 VALVE CLEARANCE
• Intake — 0.15 ± 0.02mm (cold), (0.006" ± 0.0008" inches)
• Exhaust — 0.20 ± 0.02mm (cold) (0.008" ± 0.0008" inches)
After the first 50 hours of operation, check the valve clearance
in the engine and adjust if necessary.
Important: If feeling uncomfortable about doing this procedure or
the proper tools are not available, please take the generator to the
nearest service center to have the valve clearance adjusted. This is
a very important step to ensure longest life for the engine.
