Default 2002 Cummins 24V Valve Adjustment Video

Well my truck has over 100,000 miles on it , and the valves have never been adjusted ... ever! so i called up Kenny and asked him if he had a chance if he would adjust my valves for me and if it was OK if i video taped it. He said sure so a Big Thanks to Ken McCabe !

How much does Kenny charge to do this, have about 125k miles on mine, and they haven't be checked as far as I know. Thanks

Just to confirm, 0.010" and 0.020" cold, 0.008" and 0.0016" "hot"??? In all my years of Heavy Duty Mechanics have I every adjusted valve lash while an engine is "hot". Just seem to me that a push tube would lengthen more than 0.002"-0.004" with thermal expansion. Not saying it's wrong by any means, just different than anything I have heard or seen.
