Post Adjusting valves with Roller tip rockers......

Hi I am building a 355 sbc, I have dart heads with roller tip rockers. I need to know how to adjust these. I always adjusted chevy valves with it running. I know it can be done on the stand. I would like to have good instructions......thank you. <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />

I don't have one on chevy. I had a garage fire and lost several. Just haven't replaced them yet. I know you turn motor twice to do it but not sure which valves at each turn. thanks

Thumbs up

Thanx Guys.....I have always done it while running but makes a mess and I know can't be accurate. Too much chrome and Bright yellow paint to have to clean back up. Again thanks for the replies that answered such an easy to explain question without flames. <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />
