SOURCE: Engine tappet clearances

According to http://freespace.virgin.net/tommy.sandham/databook.htm# Rocker Adjustment, the cold clearance is .008" intake/.018" exhaust in the non-GT 1500cc, and .012" intake/.022 exhaust on the GT. Sweet little car!!!

SOURCE: FORD cortina 3.0L V6 starting problems.recon tops

Have a look at the coil and its supply lead, standard it has a 9v coil and a resistor wire in the harness, this gives trouble ar resistor wire is odd and will not solder or weld and its expansion when hot loosens crimps! If you put 12 volts into a 9v coil it overwhelms (magneticly) the windings and gives a poor spark, also burns the points.

What is the tappet clearance for a man 10.225 engine


long time since i worked on big diesels but assuming their manual tappets and not hydraulic then use the norm i would set all engines too ,unless its a 60s GT type engine ,long story to get the vacumn right with high lift cams but a cooking engine like this then i would use 12th inlet and 15 exhaust ,this will get you out the woods so to speak ,this setting works on a ford D series engine ,a gardner ,a eagle diesel rolls royce ,in fact any truck engine apart from things like a 3lt V6 capri gt or a 1.6 gt cortina where as they made the cams have such a high lift they wouldnt idle on lower settings than 18th inlet and 21exhaust ,so in effect defeating the object of a GT engine ,but i dont have the time to answer on how to set up a racing engine .

Does a 1999 frod contour have hydraulic lifters or mechanical lifters


Both the 2.0 liter 4-cylinder, and the 2.5 liter V6 are overhead cam engines. While all years of the V6 us hydraulic tappets, the 4-cylinder engines varied. From 1998 and earlier, they had hydraulic tappets. From 1999 on, they used shimmed mechanical tappets. Adjusting valve clearance on the later engines is a little involved, and, if you're not familiar with the procedure, it is perhaps best left to a professional mechanic who is familiar with the engine.

Hi havent adjusted tappets for 15 years now , is a ford ka easy to do.


As I Understand the, the KA has a 1300 cc Ford Cortina or Escort cast iron engine. Therefore the tappet adjustment is the same as always. Place the cylinder on TDC compression stroke and adjust the tappets on its paired cylinder. IE 1->4: 2->3: etc.
