No. If they are in spec, they are in spec. Plus there are some advantages to being at the lower limit. If you have been doing regular checks with no adjustments for 12,000 miles they may go another 6 to 12 thousand before needing adjustment.

Run it for another 1,000 and recheck...On the lower limit you will have a marginally longer valve opening...

^^^^^^ this plus, when you do that next check, take a few extra minutes, pull the cams and check what size shims are in there now. That way you'll know what size you'll need when it does come time to adjust. ....Or just buy a HotCams shim kit... and you'll have any size you need on hand. :thumbsup:
