Valve adjustment

Hello rodders. I am looking for a valve adjustment tool to set rocker arms. So far no luck I have turned down down a deep well 5/8'' socket to a very thin wall. But when I tighten down to proper adjustment the rocker arm butts up against it and I have to back it out to get the socket off. I am using stamped roller tip 1:6 ratio rockers. Do they make a tool for this? Any help will be great.
