Re: Valve Adjust HOWTO?
You mentioned a torque wrench and feeler gauges. I've got ENGLISH ones, do you need metric versions of both?
Usually, the feeler guages have both measurements on them, since you specifically say that you have SAE ones, I would just find out the specs and convert - like if you know your valve should be set at .5mm, then use a .020 inch feeler. (actually .019685 - ha)
And what about the torque range - is it the lower or higher one?
I don't own the shop manual, but I bet it is a very few ft/lbs, ior possibly in/lbs. 7ft/lbs seems to be common for clamping rubber VC gaskets, but be sure to go by the book.
Any thoughts or feedback on HOW you did the valve adjustment would be great. Pics would be awesome. Help out an Insight brutha....
Well, I'm no help here, but I bet these valves are just like any other valves - thank god they don't use lifter buckets with shims (shims are evil). anybody have pictures of the head popped open? I'd like to see too. [/quote]
