the "book" says 1 turn.

"performance books" say 1/4 turn.

Everyone tends to pick their adjustment somewhere in between the two.

Try both and try somewhere in the middle to see which one you like the best.

I prefer to split the difference and run around 1/2 turn.

Adjusting roller rockers on 454

Yeah, I've been setting them at 1/4 turn plus a little to set the lock.seems to work OK ,use to do them running but this is a lot cleaner. Maybe I'll try a half turn this time. Thanks...................................Gus
