I just got some valves in my head replaced after my timing chain snapped and hit them. The guys at the machine shop loosened all the valves. after I tourqe the head down, do I just adjust them back to fac. specs. cold, then let it run and adjust them again hot??? Anthony

You will need to do the cold adjustment to get you in the ballpark.
Follow your manual for the proper sequence and lash specs and you'll be fine.

What he said.

Although I found the factory specs when cold, make the eninge run quieter than if you re-adjust them when hot. I noticed no ill side effects from leaving the cold lash setting on my truck ( gas mileage, power etc. ) and it was way quieter than hot specs.
