Rocker arm too tight ???

I adjusted my rockers on my 454 today. It is a fresh engine with hyd flat tappet lifters.

The "tapping and clicking" went away, but now I have a noticible skip or a miss at idle. It's very noticible in the exhaust.

Did I get one (or more) TOO TIGHT ??? Thanks......

YES!!....And you better back them off or you'll start bending or breaking valve train parts!....Try adjusting only about 1/4-1/2 turn beyond the clatter noise.
