<< Well it turns out that I misread the manual and had
the valves opened WAY TOO MUCH. It's a wonder it ran
smoothly at all. >>
If by opened up too much mean, too large of a lash, the engine will run
smoother but a bit noisy! Large valve lash settings make the valves have less
duration and lift, this gives a smoother idle.
If the lash calls for .005 to .007 and you set it at .010, that still isn't a
big jump. .030 would be a big jump.
