Here to report my 115k mile daily had most valves in spec, only a few were more than .001 off. The previous owner had 105k as the last service for them but I wanted to be sure after my K24 experience.I did valve adjustment at 250k or so. All were within spec. lol.
.001 isn't too far off.Is it normal to have to redo valve clearances when removing and reinstalling the same factory cam?
Doing final prep on the K24 before I move on to the strip donor phase so I installed a 50 degree VTC gear vs. the stock 25 degree one. The process went relatively smoothly except the insanely tight cam bolt holding the stock gear on and I nicked a cam journal in the process. Lots of 1000 grit sandpaper later you can't even tell. My question is after buttoning up the cam, caps, etc I check valve clearance (that I had just done prior) and it's .001 off on the one cyl I checked so far (No. 1). I'll have to go back and check every valve because I didn't come this far to half a$$ but the set backs are becoming tedious.
You came to the right place lol. Engine is physically in the bay with Hasport mounts, harness on, shifter hooked up but not secured. Simultaneously working on remedies for fuel lines, coolant hoses + adapters, heater hoses, EVAP, AC hardline rerouting, custom serpentine belt measuring, ABS mount adjustment, battery relocation to the rear, attempted to boot Ktuner but laptop was too old, axle measuring and header fitment. It's going to be a long fall.here for the slow updates.
