not

they crank down thats it

how most new engines are too now

especially all the little v-6 engines 3.0 3.1 3.3 3.4 etc.

been doing alot of head gasket replacements on them lately and they just crank down non adjustable

they sit on flat pedestals

diferent length rods or modify pedestal heights

or custom rocker arms

they roller cam roller lifters and have guide plates under the rocker pedestals

thats the first clue they are non adjustable

Ok thanks Just wanted to know cause I just put a newly rebuilt head and lifters and torqued down the rockers to 24 ft lbs and it starts but it shakes like the valves arent adjusted right. Im gonna loosen them up retorque them and see wat that will do
