Valve stem-to-valve rocker arm clearance should be within specification with the valve tappet completely collapsed.
The collapsed valve tappet gap, when the cylinder head is on base circle, should be as follows:

    • Minimum: 0mm (0.000 inch)
    • Nominal: 2.2mm (0.087 inch)
    • Maximum: 4.5mm (0.177 inch)

    How to set valves on Toyota 1991 23re engine

    actually all engine that have lash can be set with no books
    only the 2 numbers. for intake or exh. in usa its on the hood sticker.
    the engine has a firing order, use that to set lash on all cars made.
    all engines. (ASE 101 class day 1 , engine 1)
    there are other ways (in the FSM) but we dont need that. at all.
    lets say its a 4 banger, firing at 1,3,4,2 as most non boxers do.
    so set #1 to firing TDC. set lash now.
    then rotate crank 180deg. CW.
    that is #3 firing, set lash at #3
    180 more set 4
    180 more set 2.
    see why that works on all engines. ,
    the trick works because its really 4 engines there.
    you can set the in any order of you know how to find tdc firing.
    nothing else needs to be known.

    that hood sticker, open hood and look up,see EPA sticker there./
    bingo. lash.

    How to adjust valve lash on a 1990 Geo Storm

    its an Isuzu engine.
    there are 3 engines.
    4XE1, SOHC 1.6L (base)12valves
    4XE1, DOHC , 1.6L same as above but now with 16valves.
    4XE1, DOHC, 1.8L bends valves if belt snaps...
    note the bad idea of ISUZU calling all 3 engine same name.
    a horrid idea.
    which one? the second was in USA and Canada only.
    the second one was offered as the GSI. is yours that?

    so I will attempt to guess for you, its the base engine.
    (odds of coin toss)
    toss #2, USA, SOHC
    guess 3: did a new belt and want to do lash next. Cam belt>
    No job stated so i guess 3 times.
    Just lash.
    SOHC 1.6L only (FSM book quote)
    Check the valve lash between the rocker arm and valve stem on both the intake and exhaust valves on the number 1 cylinder, the intake valve(s) on the number 2 cylinder and the exhaust valve on the number 3 cylinder. If the valve lash on the intake valves is not 0.006 in. (0.15mm), adjust the valve lash. If the valve lash on the exhaust valve is not 0.010 in. (0.25mm), adjust the valve lash.

    1.6L twin cam has shims.
    1.8L has HLA , no lash to set.

    HLA= Hydraulic Lash adjusters.

    I posted this before, search for it. Im only doing 1 engine.

    Valve lash specs for a 900 ford tractor

    If you want to do it messy. Alot of folks that use these trrractors don't mind. fire it up with the valve cover off and adjust them with it running, tighten them till the noise goes away and then loosen just till you can faintly hear it. you may need to make a caught oil so you don't run the risk of a fire as the oil ( if it's old may burn real easy) .020 exhaust .018 intake works on most lash engines cold. you haven't mentioned the year.

    I have a 1996 pontiac sunfire with a 2.2 and my book isnt telling me the valve lash. could you help with that?

    it does'nt tell you any spec's because you probly have self adjusting lifters A.K.A hydraulic lifters they pump up and take out the slack .just set the rockers properly and you should be goin again.. but if it is overhead cam and all the rockers are on a shaft then i'm guessing the intake would be around .010 thousandth's and the exaust would be more like .012 thousandths but good luck what ever your playing with .

    Roller lifter adjustment 5.7 chevy vortec 1999

    Crank the engine until the mark on the damper aligns with the TDC mark on the timing tab and the engine is in #1 firing position.

    To adjust a valve back off the adjusting nut until lash is felt at the pushrod. Tighten the nut until all lash is removed. This can be determined by rotating the pushrods with your fngers. When all lash is removed the pushrod will stop rotating. When all play is removed rotate the nut one full turn.

    With the engine in #1 firing position the following valves can be adjusted:
    Exhaust 1,3,4,8
    Intake 1,2,5,7

    Crank engine one full revolution - The following valves can now be adjusted:
    Exhaust 2,5,6,7
    Intake 3,4,6,8
