Lol ya I could buy them on ebay and pay a bunch of money to send them here or I can save a buck and try and find them here or I will just use normal wrenches and save the money for something else. We all don't have a endless supply of money.

I just used my plain mastercraft set from Ctire...no matter what you have it's a bear of a job.  IMO...if I was to do it again, I would heat up the engine and then shut it off and adjust...this adjusting while running stuff is for the birds...not to mention tough on your feeler gauge set. 

I agree with 4mula-dlx.I already did this work.Withdrew the inner fender,used short wrenchs,not glove.Not running never.

I get frustrated at some of the threads that go on and on ...getting nothing accomplished. just online endless chit chat..

I go out and find the answer then get thrown to the curb.

I'm the type of person who asks a couple questions... then knows where to search on my own... then quickly makde a good decision and get the task done.. efficiently. Task finished.

Move on to the next. Done   .Oh... and the money factor.... I will spend the money to buy any tools needed.

Get something done. Not wanting to waste a month because I want to save $ 5.00.

I'm not rich nor poor. I know when and when not to spend on tools. I like lotsa tools and buy good tools and have tons of them

Now you should quickly buy some tappet wrenches and get those tappets adjusted!

Listen I am not trying to be a a**hole. I just don't understand the not chit chat thing. I really enjoy listening to other peoples thoughts and opinions on a variety of things. Yes sometimes the post goes to far but if someone wants to make make a contribution to the post so be it. 

 

I will still be going to that place to see if they have those wrenches incase someone wants them. 

 

Thank You for your contribution to this post.

Added after looking up the price of the Armstrong set: 

fYI  a 2lb package via USPS to Manitoba from the central USA is only $14US.

honestly if you aren't going to use them a lot, it's the best option.
