Re: valve clearance check
Checking is easy, swapping buckets a bit tougher, but not too bad. I just swapped buckets for the first time this summer and the only hiccup was getting the chain adjuster pinned. I thought I had it, but when it was time to go back together it was obvious it wasn't. Not a crisis, just used a long screw driver and slow pressure to back the tensionor back into position.
The article Dick pointed you to was the one I used.
