Mostly pictures for reference, consider this a bit of an expansion on the manual. Speaking of which, DO NOT attempt this without a factory service manual. Clicking on thumbnail will get you a larger photo and a caption which may or may not be helpful. These pics are for entertainment purposes only, I am not a professional mechanic nor do I claim to be any kind of authority when it comes to ajusting shim under bucket valves. I'm just a home mechanic type who happens to own a digital camera.
