SOURCE: rocker arms

Hello antcarrol,
I'm, thinking you may mean cam rocker arms (lobe followers) and like the saying goes, "1 picture is worth a thousand words". These arms fit below cam shaft and sit over valve springs with a small round disc shaped spacer. These spacers are notched so the follower rest on valve. The other end of follower sits atop of the lash adjuster, The top of this adjuster is globed shaped to fit securely to the follower while allowing the correct lash adjustment by two hex nuts on the adjuster.
Confused yet? Well its not easier said than done. If you have access to a shop manual hopefully picture will help Good luck and I hope I have helped. Kam

SOURCE: how do you adjust aftermarket

well first you need to know the firing order...if it's a small block chevy the firing order is 18436572. You need to write the second four digits underneath the first four digits.

so it looks like this 1843
6572

This will let you know which rocker to adjust...turn the engine over by hand using a rachet on the crank shaft bolt by the harmonic balancer until you get both rockers for number 6 cylinder moving at the same time. Now you may adjust the clearance for both rocker for number 1 cylinder. Then crank the engine over by hand again until number 5 cylinder rockers start to move. Now you can adjust the clearance on number 8 cylinder. You will need to know the manufacturer specs for the valve clearance...continue until all rockers have been adjusted.

Note: The engine should be warm when you make the adjustment.

please rate this.

Hello,

You are correct there is no lash adjustment, just the torque. However you do have to rotate the crankshaft balancer to position the crankshaft balancer alignment mark 57-63 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise from the engine front cover alignment tab. No further adjustment is required. By the way I have 22 Ft. Lbs for that torque (probably doesn't matter much) I hope this helps.

1996 vortec 5.7. how do I adjust rocker arms when the motor is cold?


these are adjusted the same way 5.7 litre motors have been adjusted since GM started making this size of motor. with every thing in place tighten rocker nuts down until about 1/16" threads is protruding above nut. once the car starts allow the engine pressure to build and oil is squirting around rockers. then with engine running tighten down rockers that are noisy until the noise has just gone. then back off nut until it starts to clatter then tighten 3/4 of a turn. repeat to all the other rockers and your done.

How do I adjust the rocker arms on a 1988 astro van. I replaced a head gasket and was told these need to be adjusted, but Im not sure what to do. I have a torch wrench.


Im not sure what engine you have but adjusting the rocker arms is generally the same w/ V8 or V6.You will not need a tork wrench.You'll need a 3/8 socket wrench w/ 5/8 socket for the rckr arm nut and 1/2" socket wrench(big long wrench) w/ the socket that will fit the crank pulley bolt to manually turn the engine.Start w/the timing mark on the balancer lined up w/ 0 on the timing tab.With all of the pushrods in place and the rckr arms loosely in place put the adjusting nuts on the studs by hand just a couple turns.Your only going to adjust the rckrs w/pushrod that are the furthest down.The #1piston should be at top dead center and the #1 intake and exhaust pushrods should be both equal distance up.Adjust all rckr arms that are this far down.Rotate the engine 180 degrees(1 turn)to line the timing mark again and adjust the rest of the rcker arm nuts that werent adjusted.TIP:When youre turning the engine by hand you'll see some pushrods/rockers start to move down.when they stop moving down this is the place where they should be for adjusting and thats usually when the timing mark lines up.Now to adjust grab the pushrod you are adjusting w/thumb and index finger so you can spin and move it up and down.With 5/8 wrench in other hand start to tighten rckr nut to just where you cannot freely spin or move up and down the push rod(zero lash).Then for final adjustment tighten the rckr nut 1/2 turn.Do this to only the pushrods that are all the way down,turn the engine once and adjust the remaining rckr nuts

89 Ranger 2.9L 150k mi. Lifter noise, power lose, oil pres zero


the lifter noise might have been a bearing going bad or a piston ring. if you lost power you probably lost compression on one cylinder. Try checking your compression with a compression tester screwed into your spark plug socket. here is a site with a procedure.
