SOURCE: hi. I know a thousandth of how we adjust the

The 4.0 engine has non-adjustable hydraulic lifters. The rocker arms are torqued to 19 foot lbs. No further adjustment is necessary.
If you have valve clatter it is likely due to worn pivots on the rockers or a worn cam lobe.
I would also check the valve springs (rare but they can break), oil pressure (low pressure from worn bearings or obstructed pickup screen) as that can cause lifter noise as well. If all is good, sometimes using an additive like marvel or lucas oil treatment will quiet them down.

What is inlet or exhaust in land rover discovery -2000

The intake valves(routed to the intake manifold/injectors/throttle body) usually have a tighter clearance specification than the exhaust valves(ruted to the exhaust manifolds/catalytic converters,etc).This is due to the exhaust valves running at a higher tempurature than the intake valves.The only engine I have had long enough to require adjustment of the valves is my 77 Plymouth Volare'(it has a Slant Six 225 with mechanical lifters).My father put about 95,000 miles on it without adjusting the valves.(supposed to be done about every 20,000 miles).My Barracuda was getting to the point of weekly repair,so I decided it was time for a complete teardown and a nut and bolt restoration(after 18 years,I'm finally painting it!)The Volare was cosmetically rough,but just needed some tune up stuff to get it running for daily use.I rebuilt the carb,and used the 5 gas analylizer in the shop to tune it to perfection(it took 4 hours to rebuild,I spent 5 hours adjusting it).It started and ran better,but I knew there was room for improvement.My next task on the list was to adjust the valves,mostly becuase of the noise(it sounded like an old Teletype machine!).I set the clearance at .010" on the intake,and .020" exhaust per the factory manual(my father was smart to buy the mechanical AND electrical manuals as part of the new car purchase deal!)The valve adjustment made such a positive difference that I had to adjust the carb again.The first trip after transferring the tags was to my parent's house.My father couldn't believe how quiet and smooth it ran! So,good for you for doing this maintainance.Engines require so little routine adjustment that it sometimes gets forgotten anymore.

How do I adjust the rocker arm bolts for the valve lash on a 1985 Nissan 720 pick up Z24 engine

Guys he has a Z24, Not KA24, Z24 for one, Is carbed and has older lifters and valves. They need to be tuned to spec within a certain specific limit and the cams must be rotated in certain positions when doing different valves, etc... Shouldnt take very long normally and its not a hard process but if you have a tick, you really should get it checked out. Btw, the Z24 engine's idle isnt controlled by ecu at all or else the carb wouldnt need an idle adjustment screw.

+ I have a 67 corvette with a 327-300hp engine. I had this engine rebuilt back stock except for a high flow oil pump and a higher lift cam. I want to adjust valves. My question is do I adjust valves like...

you would adjust as a normal stock engine, there is no gap spec for this, you will want to just snug rocker arms so they are not sloppy, turn motor over by hand and proceed to adjust each valve. run motor a few to prime lifters and then re-adjust valves as needed. Always soak lifters in oil for a day or two or prime by hand before install, as well as grease bottom of lifters before install on cam lobes

Automatic Transmission Rough Shifting

From the sounds of it you need to have your transmission rebuilt, there is no quick fix for a fault in one gear. As far as the tapping noise goes quite often a oil change is all that is required to cure it.

New rebuild chatters

adjust your valves your oil pickup tube needs to be adjusted you need feeler guages to adjust the valves down properly
make sure lifters and oil pick up tubes are not clogged

feeler guage is---> thin pieces of metal cut to different sizes to hold under valve adjusters till the play and chatter gone
check by book what the feeler size needed for adjustment
