Did your '05 need an end play adjustment?

I thought My '05 might so on my last valve adjustment (30k miles) I took a creful look/feel and measure. Mine was clearly on specification so I left it alone.

FWIW... I never know if my valves are tight or loose before I start, I just back them all out some... then go to the specs.

It all ends up in the right place....

That's the way I was taught to adjust pushrod valves on the old 60's VW's that needed adjustment every 3K miles. Worked then, works now.
