Just installed the Engine on the farmall H and I want to adjust the vavle clearence. can some one tell me step by step how to adjust it cold? I want to get it close for the first time we try to fire it up. I can not find any good reference to adjusting the valves and tappits. What is the valve cleance cold? please help.
