I have adjusted my valves and have put it all back together now, I have one question that may be an issue.

The copper oils lines went back on fine but in testing the fitment of them one connection (cyl. 1 rear) seems a little loose compaired to the other three. It does kind of snap back in place but is much easier to remove than the others.

Is this something to worry about or am I too worried about it?

Not to worry, as long as the O ring is in place your fine. The loosness in just an alignment issue.

When I did my valve adjustment, I didn't remove those lines. I used prebent feeler gauges. Just some feedback for the future. I got the gauges at Sears.

I got the same feeler gauges but followed the PDF on this site to compete the adjustment. It stated to remove the lines, so I did.

Next time I expect it to go twice as fast and will take this into account.

Thanks for the help.
