what i suggest is get the thing warm, then do the first set of valves for proper lash.

then, let it cool overnight and remeasure the cold spec. then set the rest of the valves to that. and write that spec down if it is not available on the interwebs somewhere.

use an old piece of coathanger to adjust the roller. (if they're like m20's)

there is also a way to jump the starter through the diagnostic connector, but i forget what pin it is. we would use a testlight. it's been forever and then some since i have adjusted valves on these things, so i simply do not remember.

cold spec here:
