Give the exhaust valves an extra 10 thou of clearance over the book figure.

It WILL rattle a little, but as the exhaust clearances have a habit of closing up whilst running (and will burn out valves if they're left long enough) you have an audible indicator that the valves have enough clearance, and when they go quiet you know it's time to adjust them, which knowing how awkward they are to do on an FC, it's worth it, rather than having to get in under the cab and exhaust manifold to get them adjusted.
