Once again I was able to do a little work today.

I have now checked the rh side cams, rockers and valves etc. It all looks nice and I can find nothing apparently wrong. Only the number five exhaust valve was too tight. I readjusted it, and I believe all valves are now within specs.
I like the fact that I cam now perform my own valve adjustments. I know it is not tested yet, but i think it is ok.

I have cleaned the engine fairly good now. Next will be removed the turbo. It is still soaking in pb blaster.

I have a question regarding valves:
Is it a correct assumption that carbon that is stuck between the valve and its seat only can cause a valve to be too loose, more than 0.004?
