5.0L valve adjustment

I was wondering if anyone knows the specs and procedure for adjusting the valves/rocker arms on 5.0L out of a 94 f150. Rocker arm torque specs? Thank you for the help!

The valves are non adjustable , the rocker arm torque specs are 18-25 ft-lbs....Lew

I don't have to set clearance between rocker arm and valve?

With the stock E7 heads , no , the lifter preload is built in to the rockers when you tighten them down , there pedastal mount rockers....

I think that the only way of adjustment, was through the variable pushrod lenghts that are available...also used rods should go back in their original hole.
