I've found setting the valves a very frustrating process.  The clearances seem to change randomly each time the cam carrier is bolted on. I think it may be related to worn valve stems and used shims.

When the correct clearances are obtained the carrier needs to be removed one last time to apply the Locktite 515. That's usually when the shims fall out on the garage floor. Remember to shove a rag in the oil return hole so the nuts and washers don't fall into the oil pan.
