It's easier to measure gear lash using a "test indicator", with a probe that swings in an arc, than an indicator which measures linear travel. Since there's very little option for adjustment, you'll have to decide what tolerance is acceptable.

One simple lash test is to lay the crank and intermediate shaft in the case, then rotate the crank in a way that will pop the i-shaft up out of its bearings if too tight (without the shaft coupled to the oil pump). The i-shaft gear should also be checked for run-out, to make sure it's seated properly.
