There are two ways to do this. After the valve clearances have been adjusted: 1) Using two separate feeler gauges, a .011” and a .014”, insert the .011” feeler gauge in between the rocker arm and the shim on the right side exhaust valve. Leave the feeler gauge in this position while using the .014” feeler gauge to adjust the decompression arm gap. 2) After you have set your exhaust valve clearance to .011”, remove the feeler gauge. Rest the rocker arm on the shim. Now use a .025” feeler gauge to set the gap between the rocker arm and decompression arm.
In some cases the decompression arm may need to be adjusted to compensate for variances in manufacture tolerances and/or engine wear. If the engine turns over too easily and backfires, the decompression clearance may need to be opened up slightly. If the engine turns over hard, the clearance may need to be closed up slightly.
