I'm looking at a valve adjustment later this year and considering my options. I've looked at my service manual and youtube videos on the process and I'm not entirely sure that I want to try this on my own for the first time without supervision. I really like to do as much of my own wrenching as possible whether it be my autos, motos or bicycles but my experience opening motors only goes as far as replacing valve cover gaskets.
Given I'd have to acquire a few new tools as well as a valve shim kit to perform this very seldom done service what would you guys recommend?
Just pay a shop $1000 to do it?
Find another DIY'er with tools and a kit to come to my garage to help me and possibly pay them for their time to do so?
Just invest in the tools and shim kit and give er on my own?
