Thanks for the reply, I was kinda worried about over tightening the valves when I did this. But after the adjustment the car started and idled fine with throttle. Plus, the car seems to run better than ever.
Comp cams recommends 1/2 to 3/4 turns static, Crane recommends 1/2 to one full turn. It obviously is not holding the valves open, but to my orignal question, do I get more lift?

Thanks guys,

So I am just pushing my pushrod down further into my lifter, and the running better is all in my head. Wouldn't be the first time.

Thanks again
