Another Valve lash question

A friend of mine told me how to adjust valve lash in my B&S 14hp OHV model # 287707 Type 0227 01. I did it and now I has no power and will barely start. After searching the forum, I realize I was obviously told wrong. Can anyone tell me the proper procedure and clearance settings for this model? My grass is getting out of control. Thanks Ron

Put the engine just past top dead center (use a pencil or something soft in the spark plug hole to feel when the piston gets to TDC, and then go a little past that, rotating clockwise). Then using a feeler guage, set both valves at .005". It might take a few tries, since it sometimes changes the lash adjustment when you lock the nut in place.
