I've set the valves on an 1150 more times than I can count and found that it can actually be quicker using a guage that is 1 or 2 over rather than trying to get that 'perfect feel/drag' with the correct size gauge.

I've been adjusting valves since my VW beetle in college, and I never thought of that trick. Good post.
