SOURCE: Datsun stanza 1980 tappets (lifters)

This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.

SOURCE: how easy is it to replace a noisy clutch thrust

The thrust bearing is normally a part of a new clutch kit.Comprises pressure plate, clutch plate and thrust bearing.You will need to remove the gear box to change the bearing.The bearing basically slides onto the gearbox shaft. Recommend changing all three rather than just the beaing.You may want to get quotes from garages as dealers are expensive.

SOURCE: is it a big job to fix noisy lifters? I am tired

Lifters can be easily replaced but it may be something else that is the problem. The first thing to do is get the oil pressure checked. If it's in the mid to high 20's then that is low.. Also get a compression test done. If both are low then the engine is wearing out and you would be chasing good money after bad by fixing the lifters.
A heavier oil like 15W-40 or 20W50 should quiet them down. You could also try an additive like Lucas. If you don't want to spend any large amount of money on the car it may be time to consider replacing it. Hope this helps.

What will be the problem if i have a taping noise when i start my car until it gets warm mitsubishi 380


A tapping noise that starts out cold and goes away when warm is usually caused by a valve lifter inside the engine. The lifter may be worn/leaking down and will be noisy until it fills with oil pressure. You can try an oil additive ( Lucas Oil Additive ) available at most part stores works very well with noisy lifters. Another noise that can happen cold and go away when warm is an exhaust manifold leak. However, this is normally a ticking type sound rather than a tapping sound.

Mitsubishi l200 2.5 did 08 very noisy engine, sounds very tappety is this normal ?


It may be worn out valve lifters that are inside the engine. If you have more than 6,000 miles on the oil, valve lifters could run noisier. Changing to a high mileage type of motor oil may quite down the valve lifters noise somewhat. Synthetic oil used during the summer months could make it noisier too. If you can hear the noise while driving the car, it is not normal. Upon acceleration, if it gets noisier, you will be needing a valve job in the not to distant future.

Spark plug gap for 1997 mitsubishi trition 2.4 petrol ute


Spark plug gap does not effect the engine timing so it's not that critical. Thirty 5 (.035) should work just fine.
Otherwise consult a service manual fro your model or call a Mitsubishi service centre

Ticking of 5.4 l triton motor on a truck iam about to buy


pritty much. The lifters are making the sound. Chevy motors do it as well. I do not like it but both manufacturers say it is ok. I do not hink they should have metal on metal like that. The only 2 things that the triton was known for is the head gaskets leaking from the head on the rear passenger side of the motor down on the starter and coolant leaking from the heater core hose down on the passenger rear coil and spark plug. Good motors they seem to run for ever.
