Hydraulic what? Ah, no. You adjust the valves by feel, no sissy feeler gauges here. Once up on TDC, you use a rag between your fingers and the push rod (of course, you have the push rod tubes held up by wooden clothes pins) and adjust the push rod until it 'just' turns. Tighten up the jam nuts, double check, and then try again 'cause tightening 'em up closed the clearence...and try again until you're done.
And it isn't "Mr." I happen to work for my living.
