318 older Onan valve setting

Frank Gibbs I have a 1983 318 with the older Onan engine. What is the valve clearance settings for the intake ane exhaust valves supposed to be. Thanks for anyone's help.
Dave Frank - The Intake Valve Clearance is 0.13mm (0.005"). The Exhaust Valve Clearance is 0.33mm (0.013"). If you need additional info, be sure to post. - Dave
Frank Gibbs Dave and all: Thanks for your help. Now that I know what the setting should be, how do I actually go about setting them? I'm not sure where to place the flywheel. Or, the large polished rod that comes from the carb side, do I make sure it is all the way back in the housing to set, or, just what is the procedure. Thanks a lot fellows for your help. I have a manual on the way and then I will quit bothering you guys, but I surely do appreciate your help so far...
Dave Frank - I've never messed with setting the valves, so I can't answer your questions. Did you order the component technical manual CTM2 for the Onan engine? Or, did you order the technical service manual TM1590 for the tractor? Sounds like you need CTM2. - Dave
