Finding TDC on 04-08s

Hello,
I finally got tired of being too lazy to pull the side cover and check TDC correctly.
So that's what I did. And took a quote from Taffy that he said.
" Staple at 5 oclock then bring to 9 oclock with edge of staple in line with edge of cover screw hole"
Ok, so I wanted to see how close I had been getting with the rigid zip tie method down the plug hole.
And I had been coming up a little short with the staple. I would say by readjusting the valves I needed
to tighten on a few another 1/12th max from my set 1/6th.
So yea I had been setting them a little looser than 1/6th for a while but now they are spot on.
It's about time!
Sometimes it takes a while to learn something so simple I guess.

Did you notice any difference in performance or starting after adjusting tappets?

I can't say I noticed a difference after starting it up because I really didn't change it all that much,
but it's nice to know that the measurement is more precise.
