Hi Mike,
Along with a ratchet & 5/8 deep thin wall socket you will also need a .015 feeler gauge. To be safe disconnect the battery.

Put #1 at TDC on the balancer, now insert the feeler between the rocker arm & the top of the valve on #1 Exhaust valve (first valve on drivers side) now tighten the nut until the rocker is tight on the feller, but the feeler can still be removed, now remove the feeler & tighten the nut an additional 3/4 turn, your finished with that valve, now do the intake valve the same way (second valve on drivers side) when you have finished that valve do #3 exhaust(forth valve) now #5intake(sixth valve) & #7 intake(right beside #5 Intk)
Now the passenger side, #2Int. (second valve) #4Ex (fourth valve) #8Ex.(last in line) Now you need to rotate the engine 360* turn the dampener till the TDC mark comes back up.
Now, on passenger side, #2Ex (first one)#4 Intk. (third valve) #6 (fifth valve) & (sixth valve) & the (seventh valve) put the valve cover back on this side is finished.
back to drivers side, #3 Intk(third valve) #5Ex(fifth valve) &#7Ex(last valve in line) put the valve cover on your finished.
Good luck,
