Hi
The lifter must be on the heal of the lobe to get an accurate adjustment, to accomplish this you split the firing order, 1843 6572 now with #1 Int, at full lift, #6 Int. lifter is on the heal of the lobe ready for adjustment.Loosen the adjuster nut until you can move the push rod up & down, then tighten the nut until it wont go up & down anymore then a half turn more on the nut.
Best of all to you.
