RiderRon I used that method when I adjusted mine but double checked with feeler gauge and the adjustments were not consistent so I used feeler gauges instead to be more accurate.

A friend of mine shows you how.
That method should only be used to get you in the ball park for using the feeler gauges.... NO accuracy with this method.

You are from Hawaii and now you are in Indiana. I'm from Indiana, was stationed in Hawaii, did TDY in Viet Nam and now I'm in IL. Our daughter was born at Tripler. We talked about staying in HI. but I was tired of living on an Island. Spent most of my time in HI on the North Shore and Waimaa (sp?) Bay. Loved the beach and surfing. Probably not this year but maybe next year we want to go back.

Hilimano near Schofield Barracks, out in the pineapple fields behind the Dole pineapple stand. Was there from Sept. 67 until Dec. 70. Sounds like you know the place.

With a name like Kimo, is that short for Lone Ranger's indian friend or kanaka James?
Hawaiian for James. Picked up the nickname when I had that government job in Hawaii. Had to quit the job though. Olive drab was just not my color.
