Ouch! That rocker looks rather sick. I don't mind the case of beer as much as the long drive to get the tool. I am going to fabricate one. The pic is one that I missed on ebay yesterday. I wish I had bothered to sketch the dimensions when I had the factory one for that hour the other day, but it doesn't seem the it is a dimension critical device. The other tool for measuring valve lash sound a bit more sophisticated. Can this be accomplished with a dial indicator?. I would be interested in the procedure, as the only manual I have is a Chilton's, which is pretty vague.
Thanks for the info and assist.
