Default Got a buddy with a '72 396 small block

In an 87 camaro. Only thing he can't figure out is how to adjust valve lash. How does one go about that? I'm posting up and he will read it later.

Hydraulic or solid lifters?

Over all it's pretty simple usually. You position the engine so that half the lifters are on the base circle, if they're hydraulic I take em till the valve is tight+ 1/2 turn extra otherwise you're going to need feeler gauges and the lash specs for what you're running. After you lash that set (find a book, it will tell you which ones to lash with the engine in what position) then you rotate it 360 degrees and do the other half of them. Not a huge deal, pain in the ass if you're like me and have done it a total of 4 times.

Rod length has no impact on displacement. It's all bore and stroke.

p.s. a 396 is a big block
