Valve Adjustment

I'll toss this out there and hopefully get a fix that I can tackle.
I was getting ready to work on belt install and noticed I might not be able to get to the valve covers easily with belt and shroud on, or not as easily at least.
So I 'kinda' did this before but didnt have much probs with it so I got out feeler gauge, got out blade that was .015 and 11 mm wrench ( sorry, only one I can find that will fit in there) but that bolt in there. or the 'bolts' are real tight and I started turning my bottom pully and of course everything started moving.
But my question is do I do the adjustment w/feeler gauge when valve starts on its way down and wants to make contact with bolt head and as it goes back up it will of course come back down after a rotation but on both sides I just try to keep the valve from making contact w/bolt head w/a .015 space inbetween them.

And does this make any sense?
