Valve Adjustment Trick on Engines with Pushrods
I learned this working in the Guzzi shop back in the late '70's. After adjusting a valve, leave the feeler gauge in and twirl the pushrod with your fingers. You may find a tight spot where you can only pull the feeler gauge out with difficulty if at all. This is where you re-adjust the valve.
As an old timer said, a little valve noise is better than no noise.
