Generally valve adjustment on this model wont affect the cranking. Start with the basics, battery condition and charge, check all of the cable connections, check for a voltage drop across the solenoid, also make sure the engine itself didn’t lose it’s ground, check the starter, have it tested and look at the drive components. This starting system is fairly simple, a check and repair of these items should resolve this problem.
