Found it thank you, I may have made a cockup on the first set of valves as I cheated and used the cam sprocket bolt, everything seems ok and she runs nice so fingers crossed, a little worried I have damaged the chain slider/tensioner all seems ok, time will tell I suppose

Perfect thanks

One of these might be a better option and maybe a 3mm spanner as they have a square head on the adjuster, I done mine with a very small adjustable spanner which was a real pain

I've just bought the small spanners bellow, hopefully they will fit and make it easier next time

If the adjuster is square, take a square drive deck screw and screw it into a small round piece of round wood. Make sure to predrill the hole for it so it doesn't split. I use a version of that and a 10mm box wrench.
