SOURCE: After having heads rebuilt and

Replace the adjustment nuts with new ones, they are a special type of nut that keeps its setting by friction between the crimp and the threads, this friction is given by a slight crimp to the nut that makes it out of round near the top of the treads, u can also install a product to the threads called Loctite red thread lock, U can also buy locking rocker arm adjustment nuts that use an allen screw to "lock" in the adjustment, these are avail from amny speed shops, one i use is Summit racing, another is Jegs speed, please keep in mind that other factors can cause this, one is low oil pressure caused by a camshaft bearings not being installed correctly, there are holes that allow oil to flow properly, if they are not lined up correctly to the block oil gallery then this can starve the lifter for oil pressure and they get noisy.

I have 91 dodge Dakota with a 3.9 L I'm trying to find the rocker arm torque spec and the sequence of tighting them done could you help me with that ?

There is no seguence, but you have to do it very gradually and evenly as the valve springs compress.
  1. Make sure all rocker arms with an RH stamped on them are installed to the right of those with an LH. Install the assembly with the notch on the end of the shaft pointing to the engine centerline and to the rear of the right bank or to the front of the left bank. Make sure the longer stamped steel retainers are at the number 2 and 4 positions. Tighten the bolts evenly and gradually to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).

In the 2000 Dakota, the torque is 21 ft lb/28 N m. I suspect this torque is the same for all 3.9 L V6 engines.

2005 dodge dakota has a rattle for 5 seconds at

Sounds like a rocker arm is out of adjustment or one of the rocker arms are worn more than the rest. If you find one loose rocker arm and the rest are tight then the entire rocker assembly will need to be removed and the one rocker arm will have to be replaced. Thats on a V6 and V8 models . Now on the four cylinder you have to remove the timing belt cover,unbolt the timing belt and hold tension on it to keep the belt from jumping off the crankshaft gear. Remove the rocker arm cover and you will have to remove the cam to get to the roller rocker arms. There is alot of work to do to get this job done. If you do not have all the tools to do this with, then it would be better to take the truck to a mechanics shop for repairs. Hope this will help you.

The same rocker keepts falling off just had both heads done i replaced lifter on this rocker and sugestions

Thanks for your reply. It's a little unusual but I have seen this happen before. The nut that holds the rocker arm is worn out. I believe if you buy a new nut it will solve your problem. You will probably want to get it from the dealer to be sure you get the correct part.
