When it comes to adjusting valves on an early hemi using hydraulic lifters, it's the same procedure used on any small block Chevy. Once you have the cam lobe bottomed out for a particular cylinder, simply adjust the pushrod to take the "play" out of it and then continue one full turn on the adjustment and lock it down. This gives the lifter the proper preload. Since the firing order on an early hemi is the same as the small block Chevy the same valve adjusting sequence can be followed as well.
