I wanted to check my valves on the 24hp Twin Valve Model

Customer Question

I wanted to check my valves on the 24hp Twin Valve Model 445677 engine. Can you tell me how I should check the clearances to make sure they are right. Engine runs but smokes in beginning unless I keep choke out and eventually after sometime can close choke. I get smoke when clicking the blade clutch on (short puff) and when going down a hill constant puff and when stopping engine. I rebuilt carb last year. Is it a possible valve problem?
