Default Valve adjustment

How do you figure out all the valve adjustment and get new buckets so you'll have no noise from the cams?

When the cam flopped over and pushes on to the bucket on valve!

You measure the clearance, and then do math to figure out what buckets you need. The recommended clearance numbers are in the FSM.

Surely the King of Wrx can appoint an underling to deal with this trivial issue!

Yep, get existing measurement on all valves, then (depends on engine) pull cams, see what you have already, figure out how much you need to change it, buy parts as required.

Sometimes a part on one valve can be swapped to another valve to get a correct clearance, this way you buy one part not two.

If you have shimless buckets you can grind the nipple on the inside of the bucket with a dremel grinding stone chucked into a drill press to loosen up the clearances if they are too tight. Pain in the ass and takes forever though!

Not sure how much I would want to grind there. I believe these are just case hardened, thus the hard layer is thin.

If you go through it, the soft metal underneath will mushroom opening up the gap with runtime.

True, but if you're just taking a couple thou your probably not going through the case hardening. Quite a few of us on this site have done it and had great results and saved some cash.
