Adjust valves on 18 HP Craftsman

I have an 18 hp Craftsman LT mod # 917.273404. It will hardly turn over alone. When I turn fly wheel it will try to spin, then after a couple of turns it will take off and start. Another post had the same problem, and he was told the valves needed adjusted. I never found any thing else on the subject. I looked in older posts but couldn't find any thing. If any one knows how this is done in a simple procedure, I would appreciate the help. Thanks in advance

You'll need to adjust the valves to solve the problem.
