Hi guys, I’m thinking about doing the valve clearances, any suggestions and does anyone know the order in doing them. Thanks

You need to make sure the engine is on TDC for each cylinder on compression stroke before checking them. If you start on cylinder 1, you’ll then go to cylinder 3, then 4 and finally 2 as you turn the engine over.
Removing the spark plugs will help with turning the engine over, you can also insert a long thin screw driver down the spark plug hole to help you find TDC on that cylinder.

To be honest not being funny but if you have to ask I'd pay Honda or a reputable garage to do it, it is and has been really easy to mess them up and make them worse.
