When I was repair overhaul head gasket kits.

Somehow, my book said that
TDC use on adjustment valves #1 and # 3 cylinder intake/exhaust.
And then 180deg use on adjustment #2 and #4 cylinder intake and exhaust?
^It's make me not sense right^
In: .25m
Ex: .35m
Just give me right way for adjustment.
Cuz I didn't understand what my manual book said..
Help and thanks!

 i was under the impression that ea81 motors 84 and newer have hydrolic  valve lifters and need a different adjustment spec.  the procedure is similar but the setting is a lot different,  better check and find out if you have that before you decide to give a hydro motor all that clearance.   some of the folks here may post the info you need.
