I was wondering if anyone knows the proper valve lash on a 15.5 briggs? I saw somewhere that the intake was a thousand or two larger than exhaust and i saw that both were set at .004 any input would be great. also it said set them a 1/4" past dead center past top. thanks

Intake .003”-.005”. Exhaust.005”-.007”
Think I have it sorted but unfortunately I have rung the center torque lock nut
Any idea where I'd get one
Checked briggs parts but cant find it
