This is a really old engine (from the '60s)? If so, remove the valve cover on the side of the engine, then using a briggs valve spring compressor, you can compress the springs to get the retainers off and then pull the valve out.

Old is right April 12, 1965 and it is a 3 hp, not a 5. The trick is to slip the jaw of the compressor between the spring and the retainer, when the retainer loosens flip it off the valve stem with a small screwdriver.
