Adjusted Valves

I adjusted my valves the other day. It went pretty smooth, and other than 5 and 6 being kind of a pain to get to, it wasn't too bad! Truck sounds a bit quieter and feels to have a bit more response to it. All in all a good use of time.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

Yeah, I've done mine a few times, for various reasons. And found that they weren't bad to do at all.

Hey Sean, I'm planning to do injectors sometime in the near future. While I was in there, I saw where they were, and the hold downs and stuff, but will I need to take one of the rocker arms off of each cylinder to get to the injector, or will I be able to simply pull it with the rockers still in place?

Yeah, just make sure to loosen the lines and pop the crossover tubes back a little ways to get them free of the injector bodies, or else you can damage the tip of them.
