(d) If new crossheads and guides (5) are
used, advance adjusting screws one-third of one hex (20
degrees) to straighten valve stems on their guides and to
compensate for slack in threads. When worn crossheads
and guides are used, it may be necessary to advance
adjusting screws approximately one-half of one hex.

(f) Check clearance between each
crosshead and valve spring retainer with wire gage; a
minimum of 0.030 in. clearance is required at this point.
