Exhaust rocker arm doesn't click

Adjusting my clearances 1/6th turn but the exhaust side rocker arms don't move or click like the intake ones do...
Can't be right can it?

do one at a time. loosen one off a long way. then swop them.

you are at TDC exactly? it has to be within 5mm and not 20mm (Ok thats the same as 20 degrees). TDC only.

Be sure to adjust your valves while the piston is at TDC on the compression stroke and not at overlap TDC.

My guess is that thet the decomp arm could have been touching the exh rocker when you did your first measurement, or atleast, I've had the same issue once and that was the culprit.

Thanks for the heads up people
Exhaust side is a fair bit tighter to move than the inlet
