You adjusted the valves too tight. Back off of the adjustment before you break parts. You Have to set the rocker arm clearance when the engine is cold. (Not warm, not hot)
Use a feeler gauge.
The clearance for the Intake valves is .007 to .009. (7 to 9 thousandths)
The clearance for the Exhaust valves is .009 to .011 (9 to 11 thousandths)
You want a slight drag when you pull the feeler gauge through. This technique takes a certain amount of 'Feel'.

most valves are selfadjusting the hydraulics in the valves compensate for ware ( these are called hydraulic lifters if you have solid lifters there are a few tools you need to do the job feeler gauges that go down to .001 up to .040 a few wrenches 10 mil
12 mil rachet to hold and the wrench to turn and unlock the adjuster.. adjust to the spec the manufacture set for that motor
