someone told me it works out if you get it so there is no gap then unscrew both adjusters 5/8ths of a turn on the thread and it is 31 thou.

just got this off a manual i downloaded from IF, its a snipet of the lister D manual including a note regarding valve cleanances.



0.003" or 3 thou when engine is hot methinks.
