    Who?
    I’ll never again do it any other way. Fired immediately as he said and was great!

    I'll never do it that way either. With hydraulic lifers on the stand, I would get it done at-least 50% faster than his method. I would bring timing mark to tdc and start at either #1 or #6 cylinder, depending on which one happened to be on compression. I would do both intake and exhaust on that cylinder. I would rotate the crank 90° and do the next one in the firing order, and so on and so on. I typically only use EOIC when a feeler blade is involved.

    I sell a modified valve cover called an Adjust-A-Cover for adjusting hydraulic lifters on small block Chevy heads.

    I make three different sizes: standard height, tall, and Vortec head style. They come with 8 knockout plugs and directions. $60 plus shipping. PM me if with what style you need.

    Somewhere I have little clips that covered the pushrods with a foam plug so you can keep oil under some control. I used to use them to adjust my solids very long ago. I like this idea though. :)

    That's a pretty neat invention.

    I did get mine adjusted using the static method though, following the valve adjustment order in the link in first post. Worked great... everything is running smooth as silk.
