Mp8 valve adjustment problem

Recommended Posts

After an injector cup job, while adjusting valves, the plunger on #5 exhaust valve is sticking out a little more than the others. All others adjusted fine, but#5 has a much thinner shim under it, like someone had this issue last time.

If I push down on the rocker arm, three is a little spring loaded feel to it, not anymore than the others had. Any reason this plunger is sticking out further?

I just pulled the rocker back loose and switched 4 and 5 plungers. Everything looks perfect now. I don't know why that plunger doesn't like being in number 4, but it all adjusted up just fine now.
