Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I just put a head gasket on my jeep its a straight six 4L engine. I cant seem to find anything on how to adjust the lifters, and the old school way doesnt seem to work since the engine will not start (but it does backfire)
PS old school is tightening the slop out of the lifter then going 1/4 turn past, starting the engine and tightening till the clacking stops.
This is the way i adjust tappets remove all spark plugs
draw this on a paper
u start with no1 get the valves rocking which means turn engine over by hand til no 1 rockers one rocker is going up and the is going down u may have to turn the engine back and forth slowly
to see it . once u have no 1 rocking u can adjust no 6 valves adjust them with a little clearance so the push rod still spins freely
next look at chart
1 rocking adjust 6
5 rocking adjust 2
3 rocking adjust 4
6 rocking adjust 1
2 rocking adjust 5
4 rocking adjust 3
once u have made these adjustments recheck firing order 153624
try and restart engine if it starts the turn all rocker ajuster a further 1/4 of a turn and your done u may have too wait a bit of time for the liffters to bleed down after u do final adjustment if it dont start
hope it helps please leave rating and if u need more help let me know
