That is what my manual says too... I think the little spec books have more info but those are hard to come by anymore.
I really appreciate everyone taking the time to weigh in with their thoughts and experiences!!! It is nice to know that there is a support network out there. Especially when doing something new for the first time. But, then again, if you don't do it the first time then how do you ever become experienced? I am currently researching whether or not to advance the timing for any benefit. Hey, it is something I can do when I don't have a motor and wrench in front of me to experiment with
By the way, I think I am a new fan of the backside method for setting the lash... seems to be a little easier to get the gauge into. I have almost detroyed my brand new special feeler gauge just doing #1 and #4 so I am back to the old standard feeler with the backside method
