To properly adjust vavle lash using a hydraulic flat tappet camshaft, a sequence must be followed.
Begin by working a single cyclinder at a time
Turn the engine over by hand, or, have an assistant "bump" the engine over with it's starter
When the exhaust valve begins to open, STOP!
Adjust the lash of the intake valve at this time
Continue turing engine while paying attention to the intake valve
Stop turning engine when the intake valve has opened and is 3/4 closed
Adjust the exhaust valve at this time
Lash adjustment is acheived by sliding the pushrod up and down between the rocker arm and lifter while slowly tighthening the rocker arm adjustment nut.
When pushrod has no freeplay between the lifter and the rocker arm, STOP!
Turn the nut 1/2 turn further to preload the lifter
