cylinder bolt torque settings stage 1 15 ft pounds
stage 2 50 ft pounds
stage 3 85 ft pounds

valve clearences 0.15 - 0.20mm inlet
0.22 - 0.27mm exhaust
these are the figures i have been supplied with, you can also use

cylinder bolts stage 1 10 ft pounds
stage 2 50 ft pounds
stage 3 + 90deg.
with my exp, i would use the first guide as the degree method has a tendancy to snap head bolts, especially on older vehicles.

Valve clearance for mitsubishi L200


Take the rocker cover and the upper timing belt cover off.
Set No 1 Cylinder to TDC - use the markings on the cam spocket to get this - and confirm it's on the compression stroke by check both inlet and exhaust valves are closed and on the heel of the cam.
In this position, check rockers 1,2,4 and 5.
Take care with the feeler guage to make sure you're right under the pad under the adjuster screw properly and completely passing under it, not sticking part way.
Rotate the engine (crank shaft) 360 degrees. This should bring No 4 to TDC - confirm that both inlet and exhaust valves are closed and on the heel of the cam.
In this position, check rockers 3,6,7 and 8.

Clearance for Intake and Exhaust is 0.25mm at normal engine operating temp.

Don't forget to fit a new rocker cover gasket and half moon seal (use something like Hylomar to help make sure the half moon is sealed properly - usual suspect when rocker cover leaks at the back of the engine).

Valve Clearance Valve clearance is there to allow the valves to cool in between combustion events (spark), and to make sure the valve closes properly and contains the combustion explosion. You need to cool the valves a little bit, the exhaust valve moreso than the inlet, as it's what sees the most heat as spent burnt gases go past it into the exhaust port. Run too little clearance and you'll cause the valve to "weld" a little bit to its' seat every time it closes, and then take seat metal off again when it opens. Do this enough times and you burn out the valve seat and need the head reconditioned. However, by running less clearance, the valve stays open for that little but longer, and you get more air in and out of the motor, and make more power. Run too much clearance and your motor just sounds like a diesel and loses power and tappet rattle annoys you while you're driving, so it's better to err on the side of caution.
The stock valve clearance (0.008" inlet / 0.012" exhaust, warm) is pretty good for any of the cams I've listed above, they're well-sized street cams, not really wild top heavy race cams that require super high compression to work, so don't be afraid to close the valves up a bit from the suggestions of the cam grinder, which will usually say between 0.010" and 0.014". There are a few ways to set your valve clearances:
Yellow Book Method This is from the factory 3K/4K/5K engine manual, aka The Yellow Books. It's the quick and lazy method.
Set engine to #1 TDC. Crank pulley timing mark should be on 0, distributor rotor should be pointing towards spark plug 1 or 2. Set tappets (counting from the front) 1, 2, 3 and 5. Rotate engine 360 degrees, crank pulley to 0 again, distributor rotor turned 180 degrees. Set tappets 4, 6, 7 and 8.
Nine Method I've never really gotten into doing this, takes too much time and maths for my liking :P Rotate the engine through its' range of movement, as one valve is "on the rock" of its' max lift, subtract the valve number from 9 and that's the tappet you should be setting. For example, if #8 valve is open, set clearance on valve #1. If valve #7 is open, set clearance on #2. And so on.
Stewart uses this method, and rotates the camshaft through its entire base circle and sets the clearance at the highest point. Which is a pretty good idea, as it compensates for the possibility that the base circle has been ground unevenly, and allows you to run the proper valve clearance that you want to run, instead of something that may be a few thou larger in reality.

What are the valve clearances for a 2e 12 valve engine?


I have Toyota Corolla EE80 2E engine with 12 valves. I recently top overhaul but the engine is not running in perfect condition. The engine rpm goes up and down (engine shaky). I set the rpm around 1200, if i set it lower than that the engine will stop. I check the engine timing with both the cam and crank on the correct mark. Sounds like the carburetor failure but i had service it but still the same. If i turn the distributor to the right (******) the engine rpm drop, than i turn it to the left (advance) but the rpm drop too, as i know the engine rpm should raise high and could hear the pinking sound from the valves if the the engine accelerate. For your info, i bought the cylinder head from someone who previously general overhaul his engine about 6 months ago. He dismantle his engine because of con rod problem. I just fix the cylinder head to my engine without grinding and adjusting the valves because it had been grind and adjusted 6 months ago. I check the spark plugs but look all black. I pull the plug cable one by one during the running it sounds all ok. Now i wonder what is actually wrong with the engine? Do i need to adjust the valve clearance too? What is the valve clearance for both exhaust and inlet, hot and cold? If i do the valve adjustment and yet still the problem, what is next?
