Adjusting Solid Lifters

Aside from getting the valve lash correct, the procedure per cylinder is crucial. I have tried every procedure, but find the best and easiest for myself was an individual firing order adjustment rotating the crank, starting at TDC and proceeding to the next firing cylinder. Like I said, I start at TDC on the crank and adjust No.1 firing cylinder valves ( both intake and exhaust ) to specs. I then turn the crank 1/4 turn in direction of firing rotation and adjust the valves for the No. 2 firing cylinder. Continue this through the cylinders until you are back at TDC and you are good to go. This works for all 4,6,8 cylinders and I find keeps things a little simpler. Good luck.
