00 XJ 4.0 Valve Adjustment

Well I am changing my valve cover gasket, so I figured I mine as well adjust the Valves while doing so... How do I do that? Ive adjust on my 68 VW bug and it was very difficult, Is this a simple task done with a feeler gauge ?

Thank you for the help

I was under the impression that the valves are not adjustable. If I'm wrong, someone will chime in.

The 4.0 L hydraulic lifters require no adjusting.

You mean gasket? Yes the one with a hole goes in the pin in the head.

In the pin in head? Do I need to remove something to attach this?

Also what are the Rubber grommets for and what do I do with them? This is a Felpro gasket

The farthest metal strip on the gasket in that pic has a hole in it. That hole lines up with a fixed pin in the head.

Its only there to make sure you dont put the gasket on backwards.

*and imagine if those metal support strips were not there, you would have a hell of a time lining up the gasket if it was all flimsy.

What about the grommets...Do they go under the valve cover inside the head bolt patterns? Or under the bolts above the valve cover?

They go on the bolts under the washer head.

Done, grommets were a PITA to get off the the washer seals, Hopefully no more leaky. Still so much crud from it leaking though..
