The mid-range of values given would be: EX-.005, IN-.004,
but .004 for both would be fine.

Thanks, I found another place where they said intake 3-5 & exhaust 8-10. I set intake at 4 & exhaust at 8. Mower is already gone when you posted. It started & ran fine so I hope it will be ok.

For what it's worth for any future Honda overhead cam engines that you may work on, I don't have the service literature for Honda's but, for an overhead cam, I'd think that .008-.010" would be excessive and more inclined to think that .003-.005" would be best for both valves. Where did you find this info that you came up with?
