how do i turn the engine over by hand? by grabbing and pulling the fan blades, if so does one fan revolution = one engine revolution?

Look at the front pully on the engine and the pully on the fan.
You will see that because the pullys are not the same diameter one rev of the fan will not equal one rev of the engine.
You will need to use a 1 1/8" wrench to turn the engine over using the bolt on the front of the pulley on the engine.
Sometims you can get in there with a box end wrench and get about 1/6th of a turn at a time.
Or, you can use a socket and the right combination of extensions and reach through the center of the bolster and use a rachet or breaker bar.

Got em all adjusted, I must have loosened this one before I cracked it as the feeler shows it is adjusted correctly. I don't think it is cracked further down and will be fine.

i would say it took between 1/8th and 1/4 of a turn on all of them

I was worried if it is further cracked it would break up later and damage the engine but my local mechanic says it would have fall down into the oil get sucked up in the oil pump to damage the engine and that is not likely so not to worry.

One of my manuals mentioned a box wrench, now i think know why, I used an open end and noticed it wasn't a real tight fit and i didn't have it all the way on the nut and it exerted pressure in the wrong spot causing the nut to crush.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Thanks for the observation, that water you see is rain sprinkling, and i changed the oil just prior to the pic.
