Mike, you have good info on the procedure I will just add a few observations..

 

First, I have done quite a few rocker end play settings & found that using a feeler gauge it is difficult to get them to minimum (the closer to the lower spec you get the quieter they will be) so found that using a dial indicator is (my) much preferred method as far as ease & precision goes..

 

Next, just a little warning.. There are some incorrect torque specifications posted in some on-line rocker end play procedures,, probably based on some incorrect DVD info from a while back.. So double check the torque info against a credible manual before proceeding as you don’t want to damage anything.. Most info is accurate but there is always a chance you are looking at the skewed info..

I checked mine the 1st time myself a few weeks ago at 13.5K. All was still at spec since dealer performed 6K service.

I took pics as "proof" for my records (probably overkill) but I'll share if anybody worries the procedure is too tough to tackle.

Now this looks like a good idea
