Very sorry for the delay,was at work.. This is the sequence on how the top end is done,you will need a 81.0 mm height guage and the tool goes into a smallhole in the back side of the injector and the top goes over the injector tappet,there has to be enough drag in the top of the tool to wire the oil off the top of the tappet,let me know if you have anymore questions and again,sorry for the delay.

how about the exhaust and intake settings
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
can u verbualy explain in words what the chart means
Expert:  FIX-IT replied 2 years ago.
valve overlap is the time when the exhaust valves are just about closed and the intake valves open,yes at one very small point in the rotation both the intake and the exhaust valves are both open,your intake lash is .203 mm and the exhaust is .660 mm and you can use a feeler guage for that,when say #6 is at valve overlap,set the valves on 1 and the injector height on 5 and so on,let me know if you have anymore questions.
