Here we go again... ;)

I've always adjusted them hot and running, and they don't 
click.  Only need to do it once.   And I don't much mind french-fried 
fore arm.

Now:   It is my understanding (was told this by someone who was 
there) that in Tonawanda where engines were assembled, and first 
test-run, the valves on these engines were adjusted while 
running.   Is this correct?

...just so I have the right info here.


PS:   I've done the cold-adjust thing and sometimes it works, 
sometimes it does NOT work, needed to follow up and tweak one or two 
to get them quiet
