Valve adjustment for Honda em5000s?

Hey everyone, wife and i just bought a grooming van conversion with a Honda em5000s (EA71124096) generator installed. I've been looking everywhere for the valve lash settings and don't have enough time to wait for shop manual in the mail. Does anyone have a manual that can tell me what they are? Please and thank you!

A simple Google search turns up numerous sites with that info. Here is one.

I run a bunch of those generators and rent them too. I've never had to adjust any of the valves on them. Are you having a problem with the engine ?

Thank you Pilot Dane i did see that site, but they're all a different model than my EM. I downloaded a pdf for the them and they have different valve clearances between the em5000, 5000sx, 5000x, but for some reason the 5000s isn't even listed, and the differences are HUGE so i don't want to risk it.

PJmax it's unusually loud and has ALLOT of excess blow by going into the air box. I pulled the spark arrestor on it last night and it was completely caked over by some sort of white fluff, so I'm going to have to pull the whole muffler and make sure i got it all.

It certainly wouldn't hurt to check the valve clearance.
