adjustment

do we assume u've installed a new cam and lifters?? if so do the preadj as cobalt listed... run the engine to break in the cam then re-adj while running... after break in.... engine at idle, loosen rocker till clicking, slowly tighten till click stops then in 1/4 turns, tighen another 1/2 turn... move to the next lifter till done... it would be nice to have a old valve cover u can drill the holes in, so u can keep the squarting oil at min...
