They are no harder than any of the others. Just remove the C-clip, push the axle that the arm pivots on inward and remove the arm. Once you determin which thickness of shim you need, put a little grease on the shim to hold it in place in the rocker arm and then re-install the arm on the axle. Re-install the C-clip and you're done. Takes me less than a per arm for the actual removal and replacement.

I adjusted 6 of the 8 valves at 6000 miles. Didn't notice any difference from intake to exhaust, left to right, front to back. All were equally easy.

For 50 cents, use a new C-clip when you do the job. Just to be sure. Photos:

The bottom intakes just seem a little harder to see.seems like it would be easy to drop parts.. Then again because they were ok I didn't look that close when I get the shim I need I'll check closer
