I need to do it more often. It seems I have to relearn the technique each time. I have it down to only having to adjust each valve twice now. And I use a 27mm socket on the crank pulley.
Ahhhh..... Me and my hydraulic lifters are kicked back watching the TV. I really enjoy my weekends (insert sound of beer being sipped).

I still keep the 3 wrench set-up, just in case, but they sure have a lot of dust on them currently.
