basically its the amount of freeplay in the valve tappets. What head work are you doing (cams, port/polish, head gasket)? Unless you're installing cams, or removing them for a port and polish you shouldn't really need to adjust the lash (that is unless its out of spec... your car doesn't sound like a diesel does it?).
