Hello, if i recall it is a 6 inch lb tool for setting, I can recheck my manual tonight. If your not going to be able to locate those tools, its going to be using your judgement based on 6 inch lbs using a screwdriver. Let me see if I have more info tonight, or there is a dr. cummings on this site that possible may assit you better.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer! I would be more than happy to assist you today. The 6 inch lb tool should be used but you can do it this way too. I would set them then get the tool to recheck after some run time and reset to 6 inlbs.and recheck the valve lash ---Turn injector adjusting screw down half turn after rocker contacted the injector to seat the push tube and squeeze all the oil out, back off to loose and turn back until it just contacted the injector plunger and add a little bititty turn, just past zero lash setting. You can also count the threads exposed on the injectors you did not change if appicibal
