R2 6J valve lash adjustment

More

I am trying to get my newly acquired R2 6J ready to crank start and am wondering about the valve lash adjustment COLD. The operator's manual says intake 0.005 inch hot and exhaust 0.015 hot. Would using those hot settings cause any problem for the short term?

Also, does anyone know if all R2 J series came with a ring gear on the flywheel even if they didn't have any starter? Mine has a ring gear but no evidence of any battery box or electrical system having been mounted.

Thanks
Pete

Cold settings are usually 0.002" more than hot.

Thanks, Rome. I figured that there was some adjustment but wasn’t sure how much or which way it should go.
