Default honda generator question

I bought a used EX2200 a few years ago for our hunting camp. Anyone know how to do a valve adjustment on these? Thanks!

Just like any motor, you need to turn motor to TDC(top dead center) of the compression stroke and then adj. the valve clearance.

How, and to what spec?

The only valve adjustment I've ever done was on a '88 Bronco II 2.9l V-6 and all the info was at the library in the Mitchell manual.

Not sure, depends on specific motor. I think you should be able to find out from any shop that does service on that model generator just by calling and asking what the in. and ex. valve clearnaces are. I'm not sure about my generator but I noticed the other day that on my Foreman it has a sticker with the clearances right on it.

The only shop around here (a mom&pop hardware store) that sells them won't give out info cause they want you to bring it in and pay them to do it or at least buy a service manual from them. I try to avoid them as much as possible. I got the specs from a guy on a snowmobile forum, now I just have to get back out to camp to do it (before it gets much colder).
