Often if using the spin the pushrod method to feel for the 0 lash point
you end up way past the 0 lash point.

A up-down action on the pushrod while adjusting the rocker nut works a whole lot better. Make sure the lifter is actually on the heal of the cam lobe when adjusting each valve.
intake just closes, set the exhaust.... exhaust just opens, set the intake.
