I just removed the timing plug. If you have ever done a valve adjust, these will be no problem for you.

Valve adjustment is controlled by the nut and slotted head and the amount you turn the slot giving more or less space and using a go, no go set of feeler gauges to measure the critical space. Exhaust and intake are different, intake set at .004" exhaust at .005" on a cold engine. To adjust valves remove the external valve covers being careful with the threaded screws and watch the oil since some will escape the heads.

Check the timing with the settings of the T marks after you adjust the lash.

I hope that answers you question.

You put the timing mark on the T1 the number 1 cylinder should be top dead center (front right cylinder) if not turn crank one more revolution.

Clearance
intake 0.10 mm (0.004 in)
exhaust 0.13 mm (0.005 in)

Adjust
Cyl 1 intake
Cyl 1 exhaust
Cyl 3 exhaust
Cyl 4 intake

Turn crank 1 revolution to the T1 mark Cylinder 2 should be TDC (front left cylinder)

Adjust
Cyl 2 intake
Cyl 2 exhaust
Cyl 3 intake
Cyl 4 exhaust

Say bud, I could go through the whole deal. Generally a procedure of intakes and exhaust valves on different cylinders based on which timiing marks you are aligning in the port. dj
