I've got one and the gauge and Z block that I bought around 1990 when I owned a '73 911T Targa (wish I still had that car). Seems I used it for setting cam timing if I recall, after suffering a tensioner failure, bent valve, and had to pull the heads to fix. Feeler gauges are easier by far to check valve lash - no cumbersome setup involved as with the gauge. But if the motor's out of the car, then it's pretty simple and very accurate.
