Hey there I need the exhaust and Intake(valve) clearance for a komatsu 300-6 please


note Perform the valve clearance check and adjustment at the engine cold state. 1.Remove all of the ignition coils. 2.Remove the cylinder head cover.
caution Turn the crankshaft always clockwise. 3.Turn the crankshaft clockwise, and align the timing mark on the exhaust camshaft sprocket against the upper face of the cylinder head as shown in Figure. Therefore, No.1 cylinder goes to the compression top dead center. 4.Using a thickness gauge, measure the valve clearance with the arrow shown in Figure. If deviated from the standard value, make note for the valve clearance.
Standard value:

    Intake valve 0.20 ± 0.03 mm (0.008 ± 0.0012 inch)
    Exhaust valve 0.30 ± 0.03 mm (0.012 ± 0.0012 inch)
5.Turn the crankshaft clockwise 360 degrees, and put the timing mark on the exhaust camshaft sprocket in position shown in Figure. Therefore, No. 4 cylinder goes to the compression top dead center. 6.Check the valve clearance with the arrow shown in Figure. In the same procedure as 4.
7.If the valve clearance is deviated from the standard value, remove the camshaft and the valve tappet. For the camshaft removal, refer to Camshaft Removal and Installation . 8.Using a micrometer, measure the thickness of the removed valve tappet. 9.Calculate the thickness of the newly installed valve tappet through the following equation.
A: thickness of newly installed valve tappet
B: thickness of removed valve tappet
C: measured valve clearance
Equation

    Intake valve: A = B + [C - 0.20 mm (0.008 inch)]
    Exhaust valve: A = B + [C - 0.30 mm (0.012 inch)] note The valve tappet ranges 3,000 - 3,690 mm (0.1181 - 0.1453 inch) and has 47 types per 0.015 mm (0.0006 inch). The thickness below a decimal point is stamped on the reverse side of the valve tappet. 10.Install the valve tappet selected through the procedure 9, and put the camshaft in position. For the camshaft installation, refer to Camshaft Removal and Installation .
    11.After installing the timing chain, measure the valve clearance using the procedure 3 to 6. Confirm the clearance is within the standard value.
    caution Completely remove all the old FIPG, which might be remaining among the components. 12.After completely removing the liquid gasket adhering on the timing chain case, cylinder block and cylinder head, degrease them with white gasoline.
    caution The cylinder head cover should be installed within 3 minutes of applying liquid gasket.
13.Apply a 4 mm bead of liquid gasket as illustrated.
Specified sealant:
    THREE BOND 1217G or equivalent
14. Install the cylinder head cover and tighten the tightening bolts using the following procedures.
(1) Temporarily tighten to the following torque in order shown in the illustration.
Tightening torque: 3.0 ± 1.0 N·m (27 ± 8 in-lb)(2) Tighten to the specified torque in order shown in the illustration.
Specified torque: 5.5 ± 0.5 N·m (49 ± 4 in-lb)15.Install the ignition coils.

Torque settingsfor head on lister petter mini6 engine


I have just rebuilt one for our Westerly 21. This is from my Petter 'A' range workshop manual:-
The water cooled engines (AC1W etc.) are:cylinder head nuts: 30NM (22 lbft) except 32.5NM (24 lbft) for the one that also holds the rocker.
Valve clearances are 0.1mm (0.004") COLDReset valve clearance after one hours running since torquing the head.
Retorque head and set valve clearance after initial 20 hours running
I believe Mini-6 refers to the water cooled engines but just in case, the air cooled engines are 27N (20 lbft)

HOW TO FIX A BLOWN HEAD GASKIT?


Buy a gasket kit for the upper end. Remove the valve cover intake and exhaust manifolds. Remove the head bolts. Remove head and clean up block from old gasket material. Take the head to a machinist and make sure that it is not warped. If it is warped either replace the head with a new one or have it machined true. Install new gasket and get torque specs with new head bolts and follow torque sequence using the correct torque specs. Clean exhaust, intake and valve cover of old gaskets. install new gaskets and torque according to specifications.

Settings and the valve clearances


Valve Setting is usually done only by authorised service center of Hundai, because if you do the setting wrongly it may hurt the car performance. Kindly go to the car service center or you can get the data only by visiting any Hundai service center directly.

Oil leak from rocker box on 1996jeep cherokee2.5td


Get you a new gasket for the rocker cover, make sure you clean the mating surface good,and all traces of old gasket, and silicon etc. make sure you dont overtighten the bolts to the rocker cover. the torque for the rocker cover is 35 in lbs (4nm). as far as vavle clearance it is none adjustable. A clicking valve can indicate worn lifters, sometimes an oil change will quiet down noisy lifters. If noisy lifters persist you would have to service the heads. If you decide to do that yourself you can ask for a procedure on that too later on. Removal of the head is very difficult, because you need to remove a lot of things, and require you to do a timing on the engine.

1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!


The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.

After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,


Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
