I believe you may have your terminology confused here. If I were to guess, you might be trying to adjust your valves to get rid of the valve lash/noisey lifters. If this is the case, you would bump your starter to bring number 1 piston to TDC on the compression stroke. With the engine in this position, you would then adjust various intake and exhaust valves using the procedure outlined in your service manual. I would hesitate to outline a step by step procedure here, as I fear you might damage your engine. Its not rocket science, but it sounds like you might need someone around with some actual experience. Once you actually watch someone do it, you'll be way farther down the road in terms of a good running engine as apposed to one that would be better suited to the scrap heap.....Let us know how it goes

1974 VW BUG HEAD TORQUE VALUES


If I remember correctly, head bolts are set at 26foot pounds, rockers at16foot pounds Always seemed low to me and was likely the reason that i've seen several with the heads falling off the block. If this is not an air cooled engine, disregard those numbers. If air cooled no sealant is necessary. Doing this from memory so I could be wrong.So, double check this info before using it.
