I set the clearance in the middle of the range. So. I think it will not too tight and too loose.

Are you saying the cold idle speed is set too low?

Does the engine run and idle fine after engine is warmed up?

NO.. i am talking about the valve train clearance.
the the idle is fine after engine warn up.
Before I did the adjustment, the idle is good when cold start. after i did the adjustment, i need to keep little throttle open until to engine warm.

Thanks for your help ^^
