<VV> uneven vacuum

Joe - The cold adjustment involves setting the engine to TDC (at the end of the compression stroke) for each cylinder and go through the firing order. 1-4-5-2-3-6. When the cylinder is at TDC, you back off the valve adjusters (both) until you can easily spin the pushrods between your fingers (Thumb and pointer). Then tighten them down until you take out the slack. The pushrod will be hard to turn. Then give it your pre-determined preload, often 1/2 a turn. Do both the intake and the exhaust, then move to the next cylinder. That is it.

Please advise standard cold valve adjustment procedure.

Same as a Chevy  v8!   Surely your neighbor knows how to do that?
