Does anyone know if... and if so how you adjust the tappets on a 2300 Twin Cam engine?

If they follow the same design follower buckets as the single cam', then there should be a couple of holes in the side of the bucket. This'll have a screw adjusted set at a slight angle so as it is screwed in or out the clearances change by 3 thou'. There were three grades of adjusters to allow for valve seat height, length and head/cam' box face machining.
It's a stupid desigh as the screws wear in steps and, worst thing, you can get metal shavings/dust from the threads.

Of course, it's more likely to be shims under the followers.
