First 'Guzzi' valve adjust here. The manual advises to set the clearance and nothing more. Does removing the alternator cover reveal a nut underneath so as to hand rotate the motor?

 

It does. But an easier method is to put the bike on a rear stand so the rear tire is off the ground, pull both spark plugs, put the bike in a higher gear, and use the rear tire to rotate the engine. That makes it easy to rotate the engine the correct way, just spin the rear tire the same direction it would spin going down the road, and using a higher gear gives you leverage over it to make it easier to rotate. You can do it without the rear stand, just rolling the bike in gear with the plugs out if you lack a rear stand.

Good news. Thank you. The bike came with a Teo Lamers centerstand, and I have a block of wood for the rear tire so as to make the stand usable.
