    Question 1939 Buick valve adjustment

    I am trying to set the valve adjustment for my 1939 Buick and have not been able to find the correct procedure. Anyone ever done this or have a shop manual would help a lot thanks. My engine is shaking like the valve are too tight so I want to get them set correctly.
