Short form of dates, if the Twin Towers had happened in the UK it'd have been 11/9
The US system doesn't make sense.
In fact the tappets are/were the cylindrical cam followers on an OHV engine, not the rocker arms, but even mechanics commonly used to speak of "adjusting the tappets", when what they meant was the clearances between the pushrods and the rocker arms. And you're right that OHC engine today don't seem generally to have cylindrical cam followers any longer. As I recall, there are all sort of funny designs, some looking like half a clothes peg, which are far harder to lubricate, as they can't rotate like an old tappet so the wear is always in exactly the same spot.I know it but not seen since the ohc engine
The Brits usually write day/month/year, ie in orderYear Month Day makes the most sense, then the whole number is correctly arranged to show temporal flow. Any two dates can be compared, the larger number is the later date.
