This is the difference between a technician and an engineer. An engineer will go to lengths of pedantry to discuss a pointless point rarely seen in human interactions, while a technician will fix the problem and move on down the road.I like how it's considered overthinking by wanting to see if a larger feeler will slip under. That's comical.
ITS A FREAKING REFERENCE. Am I trying to make sure it's dead on NO. I am trying to gauge how close I am to where I WANT TO BE OR WHERE ITS TELLING ME TO SET IT.
If I didn't care about where it was I wouldn't have pulled the valve covers off to check it!
You bone heads are right it's not critical or end of the world. But if the book tells me to set it at certain value, I'm gonna make sure I'm there! THATS IT!
ITS A GAUGE!

I seriously do not understand why you are still arguing this pointless point. You have been given the answer more than once, accept it and fix your truck.
