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: how to measure tappet clearance with dial gauge

When setting tappets, it has to be born inind that the valve stem wears an indentation into the face of the rocker. This prevents a really accurate tappet adjustment, so the customer is right again. If you do not posess a tappet setting dial gauge, a normal engineers dial gauge will do just as well. The procedure is the same as using your feeler gauge except that you set the dial gauge up on the cylinder head with the pointer resting on the head of the rocker. Press down fairly firmly on the rocker valve end and zero the gauge. Next lift up on the rocker and read off the clearance, from the gauge, Use a magnetic base to support your gauge and repeat the pocedure for each valve pair.

SOURCE: tappet problem

the check prosidure requires you engine be cold engine at top dead center at #1 cylinder and cams timing markes aligned to markes. check only intake and exaust lifters with lobes in the released position. intake is .15-.25mm and exaust is .25-.35 mm. rotate the engine 180deg. to check the remaining cylinders. if exsesive play is exsperianced. You must remove cam shafts, and add a new shim to remove the clearence. this includes the timing chain.most engine machine shops have these shims.really suggest you go online for a sevice manule. you can ruin this engine if not performed properly. This is a zero clearence engine! (no clearence between valves and pistons.) any more questions i can help you with just send to my e mail.

Hi have a f22b3 1995exi was wondering if any one nows the specs on the tappet gaps .Also can u adjust them and advance the motor ?? Wanna put it in a motor carna


the valve timing on a motor is set and cannot be altered. The length of time that the valves are held open is determined by the lift of the cam and this period of time that the valves are held open determines how much mixture is allowed into the cylinder. If you advance the cam shaft you may gain extra mixture and a bit more power but on a single cam the exhaust valve timing is altered and so the advantage of the advance is lost. If you want more go from the motor get specially ground cam shafts ( hot cams) As to tappet clearance, if you have hydraulic lifters then they self adjust and thee is no clearance measurement. If you can adjust the tappets then most engines run .010" hot inlet and .012" exhaust hot Setting the tappets closer means that they open sooner but they also close sooner so the amount of mixture is reduced as the time for the mixture to enter the cylinder is reduced.

I need the tappet setting for a Honda Ballarde 160i


If your not sure then do a me 12th inlet and 15 exhaust this will cover most cooking engines but not some GT older models .Yes iam aware what the so called bar room mechanics say about my advice but so long as it has a gap then it will run .All old british leyland engines were around this figure but some ford GT engine had wide gaps and clattered but ?? and some renaults had gaps as small as 4th and 8 th but this honda comes underthe catagory of what we call in the trade cooking engines .IE to go to the shops in and the school run

How can i make a tappet clearance of honda vtec 98


You will need a "tappet gauge/blade" and then here is what you have to do:
1. open engine head, its the cover of engine where HONDA is written.
2. Now jack up and one side of the car and put the car in 4th gear
3. Start from any one side, if the tappet is not in "UP" position then rotate the wheel (the jacked up side of car) and once the tappet moves up, stop there.
4. Loosen the nut of the tappet and put the tappet blade in between the tappet gap. Now using screw driver, tighten the tappet so that blade fits snugly between the gap and without moving anything (blade and screw driver) ask a helper to tighten the tappet nut finally.
5. Repeat above procedure for each tappet.

If you do it carefully, there will be no tappet sound at all.
