FE Technical Forum / Vavle adjustment
« on: December 14, 2015, 11:58:09 PM »
So I have a question regarding adjusting my valves. My new engine has about 800 miles on it. I am starting to hear some ticking noise coming from cylinder #4. The cam is a Crane hydraulic roller with Crane hydraulic roller lifters and Harland Sharp roller rocker asb. So last night I followed the procedures on adjusting my vavles from my shop manual. I rotated the crank until cylinder #1 to TDC and adjust #1-I/E #3-I #4-E #7-I #5-E #8-I/E then rotate engin 360* until cylinder #6 is at TDC then set #2-I/E #4-I #3-E #5-I #6-I #7-E. When I was setting my lash to zero lash and giving one more  full turn at about 3/4 turn the vavle started to open so I back it off to 1/2 a turn on each vavle. Started up the engine and it was much quieter. I just want to know if this is the recommended way to adjust my valves or should I have rotated the engine each time on all valves. Thanks for your help
