To those who have done it a few times. Do you shoot for the high side of the clearance range? I have several valves that are in the range but just at the lower limit. Im wondering if I should move them to the higher end of the clearance.

Thanks
 
Lynchmob,
When I set the valves I'll try to adjust them to midrange.
From measuring the clearances I found that overall the clearances get narrower ( as you would expect on this engine) but sometimes they seem to widen up. That's why I try to get them midrange. If the shims don't allow that because of the limited sizes, I'll choose the wider setting.
The idea is that a slight valve clatter is better than a valve being too tight.
