919 Valve Check Help in DFW

Is there anyone in the DFW area that would be willing to help me with a valve check/adjustment? Are there step by step instructions? Is this something I can screw up? I'm not sure what I need or what needs to be done.

I think the 919 is a shim under bucket style cam follower. Checking clearences is no problem. Correcting any out of specification is more difficult. I'm down by San Antonio and I haven't done mine yet even tho the parts guys at the dealer say they'll trade shims for me.
