Note: 1964 to early ’70s engines have rocker shafts and non-adjustable rocker arms. Later sixes have pedestal rocker arms that are also non-adjustable. Moses Ludel talks about various methods for setting the valve clearance and how to properly compensate for wear, cylinder head surfacing, valve grinding and changed valve seat depth or valve stem heights.
