SOURCE: Datsun stanza 1980 tappets (lifters)

This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.

SOURCE: hydrolic lifters making a taping noise

First thing to do is change oil and filter. Hopefully it has not done this long and has hard faced the shims. Good luck and have a good day.

SOURCE: Ford Ranger diesel has noisy tappets until truck

Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help you.

I drove a diesel Chevy and had the same problem.

I reduced the noise by dropping my oil to a lower viscosity at the low end and keeping the high end the same. i.e. If O.E.M. recommends a 10W30 dropped to a 5W30. This will give you coverage at the high side and lower viscosity at the low end.

There are after market additives which are formulated to lubricate the tappets. Any parts store should be able to recommend which is best. Follow the instructions and do not add too much. They contain a "sticky" nature which could defeat the dropping of your lower viscosity.

I trust this answered your question. If I can be of further help, let me know.

SOURCE: i need the tappet setting

There's NO code for noisy lifters. Depending on miles and previous maintenance (oil changes, etc) your lofters are probably worn. They need to be replaced and you might have an oil pressure test done to make sure there's is adequate oil pressure.

SOURCE: i have a 1991 ford

These aren't adjustable. You will have to look at the rocker arms and the push rods for wear. I have seen them that the arm is about worn threw and the rod end was about gone.(oval shaped).

How to adjust tappet clearaNCE OF FORD RANGER 12 VALVE


Unless the is a modified engine, there is no setting on the valve clearance. It has hydraulic valve lifters and they don't require any setting of the valve tappets.If they are making noise when it is running the you have a bad valve lifter. Unless you can get some kind of lubricant to add to the oil that will clean the lifters, you may have to install new ones.

Do they wor for noisey tappets


Noisy lifters (tappets) are caused by wear in the valve train, this is a fact of life for engines and normal. Two choices, go to the next higher viscosity oil(which will only quiet it a little), or have the valve train rebuilt. I personally have seen noisy engines run 10-15 years with no major failures!

Previous problem - hydraulic lifter noisy - car first lost oil hose to turbo - before this lifters, etc. were fine- 2003 PT cruser w/ turbo


that oil hose probably lost enough engine oil to starve lifters... but then again, that engine shouldn't have lifters since it an overhead cam... suspect your tappets were starved of oil... might come around, might not...

Lifter tapping


The tappet noise usually will get louder and louder as it wears. A totally collapsed lifter will definitely be noticeable by loss of power to that cylinder, misfiring, and excessive noise. But then again your current lifter noise could be possibly maintained for years to come by regular and consistent oil changes.
