    That way works too for your preliminary setting, if you still had the manifold off you could see to set each one when it was on the base circle of the cam, or you can go through the fireing order if the mani is already on, but running & hot is best for your final adjustment & should get rid of your rattle.

    Your're welcome Steps. Glad to hear it has worked out well & your lifter rattle is gone.
    I think if you go to Seafoams web site there is a link you can click on that will give you a list of distributors in your area.
