valve adjustment B&S 16.5 OHV

do you adjust the valves on a B&S 16.5 HP OHV with the nut or the center torque head screw

Both. You loosen the torx screw, then adjust the valve clearance with the nut, then tighten the torx screw to lock the adjustment. Recheck the clearance after locking it in place, sometimes it moves a little.
