    I personally spin the push rod while tightening up the rocker with the opposite valve on that cylinder at max lift. when the push rod quits spinning tighten 3/4's turn.
    This wouldn't have happened if only you had been paying attention!

    with engine idling slow, i back off rocker until it starts to clack, then tighten slowly till quiet, then another 1/2 turn...go thru them all...now they are all exactly the same...should be quiet under the hood when done...and listen to the exhaust...should be music :wink:
