It looks like there must be a different way for everyone as far as adjusting rocker arms. Today I'm in the process of converting from pedestal to stud mounts via a Crane mod and Comp roller rockers on my Ford 5.0L. I've asked opinions on a couple of different Ford specific sites - you guessed it, now with the one above (which at least wasn't my question this time) up to five with more coming most likely before my day is over. The methods that make the most sense are the ones that put the lifter on the base circle then do the adjustment. Of course, and to confuse the issue is push rod length and where the rocker roller rides on the valve stem and plus whether the rocker will hit the retainer or even the valve spring. Almost makes me wish for a mechanical camshaft, shaft mounted rockers and feeler gauges
