Do you have anything that you can measure the buckets with?

1) check clearances with feeler gauge
2) make a chart showing clearances for each bucket, and leave room for more numbers under each
3) remove camshafts
4) use micrometer to measure top of buckets for each valve one at a time
5) put that in the valve chart, and reinstall each bucket after measuring
6) replace any buckets that are out of spec
7) reinstall camshafts and check clearances
Be eclectic.
