i have to say ... that WITHOUT the click-adjust, i would never
be at this learning point. This car is the first time in my life
that i have had the opportunity to learn auto-mechanics.. (not
addressing the fact that i chose other things to spend my time on
instead... and anyone who says they always wanted to do X in "the
worst way but never had the opportunity are lying to themselves,
because they WOULD HAVE DONE IT if they wanted it THAT badly..
but i digress)...
if i hadn't ever bought one, i would never have been BRAVE enough
to take off the valve cover let alone tackle the adjustment
job/chore...... AND i would still be using it IF i hadn't found
out that my math, tho technically correct, was still faulty
because of my assumptions about Threads Per Inch, and forgetting
about Rocker Ratio... .. If the recommendation for lash had been
stock .012 Cold, for my engine, i would never have questioned its
effectiveness at all.......still trying to figure out how to get
it calibrated, so i can go BACK to using it!... until that time,
tho, the tried and true method serves......
