Setting the valve lash on a Chevy small block 305

Rotate the motor clockwise to #1 TDC on the firing stroke. (both valves will not move as the piston is coming up.)

If its not already loose, loosen the nut. Turn the nut while twisting the pushrod between your fingers. When you feel resistance its at zero lash (if you have strong fingers, dont force it). Turn the nut 1 full turn.

Do Exhaust valves cylinders 1,3,4 and 8 and Intake valves 1,2,5, and 7.

Rotate the motor one full turn and do Exhaust 2,5,6 and 7 and Intake 3,4,6 and 8.

My 1989 Honda Accord is pushing oil out of valve cover into air cleaner. Motor Shot or some kind of intake issue giving pressure where there shouldn't be any? Makes the car run poorly when warm stalls out...

Could be a plugged PCV, or you are having excessive blow-by, oiling getting past the rings and out of the cylinders into the intake. I'd check the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation), shake it, you should hear somewhat of a "rattle" coming out of it. If not it's plugged up and needs replaced. Should be in a 3/8 size hose, or in the valve cover.

I want more horse power without having to due an engine swap whats the best way to start everythings stock

start with intake manifold cold air intake not a short ram intake performance spark plugs wires and distributor cap, headers exhaust system not a tip.
make sure you have an LSD transmission then pull apart the motor mainly the head change out valves, spring retainers, and springs. new camshafts make sure you buy the springs and spring retainers before you put in the new cams. if you have the money to bore out the block it be better to take your block clean it up and put darton sleeves then buy a new crankshaft new psitons and rods with new rings all of this will cost a good deal but will increase performance a turbo should be the last thing you do increase the motor HP and max it out then put in a turbo but ensure your car is sleeved darton sleeves are the best never had a problem. i used to own a 2000 honda civic si i pushed 239 HP staright motor B16A2 motor. good luck any other questions let me know

1984 honda crx 1.3 (calif) 5sp.- can the timing be retarded and run better? When my timing is set according to factory specs (red mark) it pings. I use chevron regular(87) owners manual says the car ...

If anything with Honda's you wanna advance it and run decent gas. I used to advance it so far until it pings then back it off a little. Increased power AND gas mileage.

Vote for me.
