yes you can.
It should only take 30-45 minutes to do so.
Using something like this makes valve adjustments on dohc vtec engines a lot easier. Its just a craftsman gear ratchet with a flathead screwdriver down the middle of it (the gear ratchet is hollow, same with the extension and all sockets).

This is a pretty good how-to. I also find that angled feeler guages do make things easier.

you can buy a 10mm valve adjuster at CT its made by powerbuilt. like 20 bux or something, its worth the investment.
