^ thats good if the valve is loose
but how do you measure the how far out it was if its 0.oo10" or 0.ooo50"
I dont see how they can even spec it to be 1.5 thou max and what? zero min?
maybe it is zero min. If you have two valves on one tappet, if one is touching the other must be either touching or slightly loose
if you tighten that one up till its touching the other one would be loose...
it has one hydraulic lifter per pair, right? Those usually self adjust to zero.
