I'm finally getting around to working on this car next week, and have a quick question. Apparently it has a miss in one cylinder, so I need to run a compression check after adjusting the valves. I've never played with an M127 before, but is it possible to cobble together a DIY tool for valve adjustments, vs buying the factory crows foot? Valve Adjustment Tour

+1 fuel injectors are expensive and usually they are good. I would pull them out and clean.
You need the tool in the pic to clean the injectors. I usually use diesel or ATF and have even saved injectors on cars that sat over 10 years...
