There is a spring holding the plunger up. You tighten the rocker until it drags on the pshrod when twisting it. If you hand actuate the rocker you will feel the oil that is drawn into the lifter.

You adjust running and tighten/backoff until it stops ticking. A preload / lash spec is also possible.

speed round at the end.

oil
yes, turn engine 90 degrees every so often while priming
bogie is right with a caveat that it varies
