    Ok, I need to double check my valve adjustment after changing heads. Below is the procedure to adjust but I'm not
    sure which is the intake for #1. Lets say I'm facing the engine from front, is the closest lifter to me the intake?

    *****

    with #1 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #6 Intake Valve
    with #8 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #5 Intake Valve
    with #4 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #7 Intake Valve
    with #3 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #2 Intake Valve
    with #6 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #1 Intake Valve
    with #5 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #8 Intake Valve
    with #7 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #4 Intake Valve
    with #2 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #3 Intake Valve

    Just look at your exhaust manifold. You can plainly see which vavles lines up with it.
    good luck /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    i found it easier to have someone bump the starter until both valves on #1 were closed, then bump it again to make sure they don't move, then do those, then repeat for 357 then 2468

    yeah, I got it done. I had my girlfriend bump the motor while I followed the pattern to tighten above. Before I put the intake back on, I bumped it to #1 TDC so life remains easier /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    thanks for all the help
