Default HELP Valve Adjustment for 89 EZGO

Can anyone out there tell me how to adjust the valves on my 89 ezgo robin engine.
Had the motor rebuilt about 2 years ago, but never had the valves adjusted since then.
I did not know this was supposed to be done on a regular basis.

I can do it myself, if someone will HELP.
Thanks,
Phillip

Well, I kinda thought that, but the local golf cart repairman said that was my problem.
I thought I needed a New Ignitor. Just doesn't seem to have any good fire when first trying to start it. Just turns over and over for about a full minute, then it starts to fire, but by that time the engine is flooded.
Can you help??
Thanks,
Phillip

That's not saying much for your local golf cart repair guy.
Need to do a compression test going in both direction.

Well, I thought about that, but this came up so suddenly, that I just didn't suspect that being the problem.
It run and started within about 3 revelutions for the last 3 months, then the other day when the grandkids got on it, it started this mess.

Plus I don't have a compression gauge, and I'm not going to take it to the local guy!!

Places like autozone will let you borrow one. it just gives a base line as to what/where to start looking for the problem. have you tried replacing the spark plug, air filter or anything like that? those could be things that may be a problem.

Thanks again! I will check all that tomorrow. Air filter and new spark plug, and check the compression,
How many times should I turn the motor over in each direction? And what is the compresion base line.
Thanks,
Phillip
