Valve clearance for a 310 Waukesha

I thought I would ask what should be the correct intake and exhaust valve adjustment for the tappets. My mechanic said I shouldn't have to adjust it if I kept the rack intact and attached to the head as he took it off. We had a bad head gasket and I disagreed with him. The rack had to be removed so it could be properly torqued. I also know that the various secondary publications can be incorrect or not up to date. This is not the engine block with the built in oil cooler but it is a turbo'd diesel on an Oliver 1855. Thanks, just trying to do it right.

when I worked for a massey/former Oliver dealer we were told valve settings for all waukesha engines should be .022 intake and exhaust.I use that without problems, I think manuals said .020 and .030.Your choice I guess

you are totally correct!, and so why does the mechanic say that? any time the head is off valve set happens,.. and on a retorque valve set happens again. when you squeeze head gasket you are decreasing the valve clearance. i dont have the clearance, but if you want to show him torque the head and then take the valve measurements , that will prove him wrong.

This is off the top of my head, but .030 for both is what I recall.
