Bill, adjusting the valves is not hard, but it is difficult to describe in detail how to do it. Have you ever adjusted valves on any engine? You must have each piston at top dead center as you adjust its valves. Without having someone there to help make sure its done right, it might be a good idea to have a reputeable shop do it. Too loose is noisy. Too tight is a burned valve. Good luck, Jag

kooper909 is starting off with a positive reputation.
You can always adjust the valve clearance while it's running ... but then again on a V8, you're more likely to get oil everywhere doing that.
