Nice write up.
Those ball jointed elephant feet pads on the adjuster screws will pitch sideways a little bit when trying to slide the special feeler gauge in there and make it annoying... takes patience and I usually run out of that while contorting myself in the process and decide it's quicker and easier to just loosen the things and readjust them too.

When taking the time to get the feeler gauge blade in there and check them I've found both the intake and exhaust clearences get larger with mileage so I set them on the snug side of .004" now.

I've never tried the backside method. Maybe someday.
