These things are not like the typical rocker arms. The adjustment of valve clearance is accomplished thru the use of different thicknesses of thrust plates (item #8 in the dirgram.) There is no adjustment like on the american V8's.

I was hoping to hear from somebody that might have tried to clean these things and find out how well it worked.
