You must remove the valvecovers to access the rocker to valve stem clearance. use the chart I added to have the engine in the correct positions for adjustment. you will need a feeler guage set also. good luck, keep me posted if any more questions

SOURCE: 88 ford ranger 2.9 low oil pressure

i just bought a BII with famous tick..........oil pressure light came on (no gauge). I installed mechanic gauge and showed 5 psi so I decided to replace oil pump. Pulled pan off (not fun!) the pickup tube was clogged and the was part of the timing chain tensioner in pan. I then pulled timing cover off only to find chain streched and the chain guide and tensioner pretty much gone. I think tick was chain slap..........will know for sure in a couple days.

SOURCE: lifters making noise how do you adjust them?

The engine/oil pump may be worn enough that the oil pressure is too low at idle. Suggest getting the system pressure read at your favorite service shop and get an estimate of required repairs. Have you been getting regular oil changes?

SOURCE: are the lifters on a 1997 ford f250 self adjusting

All newer vehicles use Hydraulic Lifters, if they are getting noisy or sticky, it might be time to replace them.

How to agust tappets on a 250 pre cross flow ford 6


If you have hydraulic lifters(tappets) then you turn the adjusting screw 1/4 turn past the point where there is no noise from the rocker arm. If you have solid lifters, then you'll have to get the cold clearance spec for that engine and adjust accordingly.

What is the Valve adjustment for 1966 Corvette 427 Cubic Inch Solid lifters


All older GM engines with solid lifters had a simple procedure. Take the rockers to zero lash on push rods, then 1/2 turn past that, and you are done. Just be sure you have the cam in the right position to set each rocker correctly

Need to know how to adjust valve lash on a big block 454 with roller rocker arms and hydralic roller lifters ? A video whould really help


The old fashioned way was to connect everything up and tighten the nut on the lifters until you could no longer turn the pushrod and then add about a quarter turn. Cover the lifters with a rag then start the engine with the valve cover off and loosen one lifter at a time until you hear it clicking and then tighten just until the clicking stops. Do that on all lifters ona at a time. Whe complete go back and add one quarter turn to each lifter.

Lifters sound loud on 2011 Ultra Classic


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.

Does 1966 mustang 289 have self adjusting valves?


If it's a "K" code hi-po 289, then it has solid lifters and the valve clearance is adjustable. If a standard 289, then it has hydraulic lifters which are zero clearance and self adjusting, i.e. there is no adjusting screw on the rocker arm.

Valve settings on a 1992 dodge dakota v6 engine


You should have hydraulic lifters, unless someone changed them along the way. Normally nobody puts solid lifters in a vehicle that is a driven on the street daily. That being said, the normal adjustment for hydraulic lifters is normally take all clearance out of rocker arm to lifter plus an extra 1/2 to 3/4 turn. I used to do this with the motor running, I would adjust it tighter till it quits rattling and then tighten an extra 1/2 turn. If the lifters are bad, however, the rattling will never go away. I hope this helps.

Are the valves adjustable


I believe valves in modern vehicles are hydraulic and do not require adjustment. It is possible your vehicle may be different or has been modified. Solid lifters are not unknown just not real popular because of the maintenance they require. If there is a problem with the vehicle and you suspect valves are out of adjustment, you could remove the 4 bolts that hold the cover on and look. If there are adjusters, they will be immediately visable.
