There is no adjustment on a 5.9L engine. If you have an issue with a rocker you need to pull it out and replace the Pushrod and Rocker (also tapet if bad) then torque the bolt on the rocker to 21 ft lbs torque.

thanks. when its first started until it goes back down to idle theres a rapping sound. if theres no load on the motor and its reving the noise is louder. i can hear it when driving next to parked cars or whatnot. but if nothing is around then i cant hear it.
