Valve adjustment

In the service manual it says "turn the adjustment screw until there is a slight drag felt on the feeler gauge" ..What's a slight drag!?!? I think my last adjustment i probably tightened it too much. But are you supposed to be able to slide the gauge freely and when it doesnt slide freely then they're adjusted properly? I just need a little better of an explanation on this..
Thanks a lot
-Will

Tighten it down on your feeler gauge until you can feel the drag on it when you pull it out. In other words, it should be a snug fit.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I like to coat the feeler guage with a little bit of oil, and tighten until you just start to feel resistance while pulling it out. If you're dealing with small clearances, .002-.004, you should feel the resistance while pulling it out and the feeler guage should try to buckle slightly if you push it back in.

Me too. So having them tighter is better than loose (which is pretty hard to set them to unless you try...)

Either they need to be adjusted or your cam and/or rocker arms are worn. Try adjusting them first.
