Smile 450 SL Valve adjustment

I need to adjust the valves on my 75 450 sl and I need to know what size crowfoot wrench to purchase and any tips or advice from members who have done this procedure would be much appreciated. Thanks, Frank.

Valve adjustment

I haven't done the job myself, but from what I understand it takes a special wrench to adjust the valves.

Smile Thanks Gary.

Yes, I know that you need a 3/8" extension that is bent for clearance. I was hopping to find out what size crowfoot wrench to put on the end of it before I take off the valve covers. One of you home mechanics knows, let me know. Good lookin' out.
