Does anyone have the procedure for adjusting the valves on a 98 3.9 Dak? I am getting a slight "tap" from one but I need to check them all. Thanks in advance, Tim

Are you serious? There is no way to adjust the rocker arms or anything? Am I not asking this right? How would you remove the rockers, springs and push rods? Thanks again. Tim

The factory rocker arms are non-adjustable. Torque to spec and leave them alone. If they were adjustable roller rockers, then you can adjust them. They're hydraulic...no adjustment needed from factory spec (torque).

OK, that is what I am trying to get at, sorry for the confusion. What are the torque specs for the rocker arms and what order do you torque them in? Once again, lil brain dead this morning, sorry for the confusion. :) Thanks Tim
