You can measure the valve springs to check for length and theat they are in spec. On an old motor, you can also Lap the valves to ensure they seal nice.
Check your manual or the B&S web site for the specs.
Other than that you can't do much adjusting.

There are adjusters on the rocker arms for adjusting the valve vlearances. You can adjust them easily via the procedure in the link provided.
