Adjusting Valves

On the KEF engine, when #1 cylinder is at top dead center on the compression stroke, this is when I want to adjust both exhaust and intake valves, right? Number 4 cylinder is at top dead center also on exhaust stroke at the same time, I believe. Can I set the valve lash on #4 at the same time as I adjust #1, or should I go through the cycle of adjust #1, rotate 180 degrees, adjust #3, rotate 180 degrees adjust #4, rotate 180 degrees and finally be able to adjust #2?

Thanks for your replies.

They can be set at the same time as you stated. I remember setting valves on 6 cyl JDs. The manual had what valves to adjust on each cyl at certain revolutions.

I answered you on the other board. In my opinion if you adjust two at a time you will probably wind up with the valves very loose on two cylinders.
