I've been doing this for 35+ years and I have never heard this term used before, I've run the rack which includes adjusting all the valves and the throttle rack, but that was befre electronic injection.I'm going to opt out and see if I can get you some more help

I know one of the things is to adjust the valves.

I just called my friend(a little younger) with a lot of diesel knowledge,and it is indeed what I refer to as run the rack. Adjust valve & injector lash and engine brake clearance (if equipped) Thanks, Dave
