Default Farmall 560 Diesel, "cool" valve lash

Can anyone provide a "close enough" valve lash clearance for when the engine is at ROOM temerature? The book says .028 on a hot engine. I hate working on a hot engine! Plus I want to set them before I start it.

Thnaks!

The book should also tell you that "hot" is above 32° if I remember correctly.

Normally the 'hot' setting is close enough for the cold initial adjustment. Add a couple thou extra if you're paranoid.

Cold adjustment makes more sense. Easier to make sure the engine is uniform in temperature.

most books i have seen will give hot and cold specs and they are usually .002 more for cold adjustment. so add .002 extra then warm it up and see what the lash is.
