Sorry, posting a new one to get your attn, Benzmac.

Saw you mention "every 15K" for valve adjustment...This is news to me and I'm concerned mine may need it ASAP since I have no idea when or if this was done at all. Are you talking about 617.95X engines ?
I suppose a smooth running engine doesn't mean a valve adjustment isn't needed ?
Are there telltale signs of needing one or is this mandatory routine checking/adjustment ?
Yet another thing to take care of....

While we're at it, does this "15K" requirement apply to the non-turbo 617.912 engine ?
(Can a loud clatter during idle be caused by out of adjustment valves ?)
