that's a normal oil thing. But the valve adjustment. Could you even get a feeler guage in there before you tried adjusting. That's one big shim difference. Were you on top dead center? you have to watch the marks on flywheel, there are two. Did other valves check ok? What year? 4 valve or five?

Are you sure your getting the puck seated all the way down on valve?

The valve specs are .10 - .15mm (.004 - .006") for intakes and .20 - .25mm (.008 - .010")
