If I have hydrolic lifters I should use a feeler gauge to adjust them?
NO, if you have hydraulic, they will be adjusted with "0" lash. If they are solid, they get adjusted with a feeler gauge. You may want to pick up a book on engine rebuilding or search thru Hotrodders for articles related to valve adjustment. There is plenty of info on here for that. The valve adjustment needs to be correct so it's important to get it right, but again, you HAVE to know what kind of lifters you have first. Good luck and keep us posted.
