Valve clearance on Nissan Np200 1.6 8 valve. Intake .010-.013 .26-.34 Does that mean I can set it with any values between 0.010 - 0.013?

I have a 16 blades-offset Feeler Gauge. The values on it are .010 .254 mm on one, .011 279 mm, the other .012 .305 mm .013 .330 mm. Which one am I to use?

SOURCE: how to measure tappet clearance with dial gauge

When setting tappets, it has to be born inind that the valve stem wears an indentation into the face of the rocker. This prevents a really accurate tappet adjustment, so the customer is right again. If you do not posess a tappet setting dial gauge, a normal engineers dial gauge will do just as well. The procedure is the same as using your feeler gauge except that you set the dial gauge up on the cylinder head with the pointer resting on the head of the rocker. Press down fairly firmly on the rocker valve end and zero the gauge. Next lift up on the rocker and read off the clearance, from the gauge, Use a magnetic base to support your gauge and repeat the pocedure for each valve pair.

SOURCE: Which size of feeler gauge do we use for td42 valve tappet clearance

the engine make would be a help but generally if it is petrol ,water cooled --.010" hot inlet and .012" hot exhaust
if diesel then .012" inlet hot and .014" exhaust hot
if air cooled petrol then same as for diesel
best if you get a workshop manual and check for specifics.

How do I set a ignition point own a 1965 dodge polara 383 engine


Find the gap measurement.
Remove the distributor cap.
Remove the rotor arm, (the black and brass thing under the distributor cap.
CRANK THE ENGINE SO THAT THE LOBE OF THE DISTRIBUTOR SHAFT HAS PUSHED THE POINTS OPEN TO THEIR WIDEST GAP,.
The feeler guage should be pushed between the contacts, it should go in perpendicular , i.e. the nose of the feeler blades should go in like the point of a knife.
There should be a light drag on the feeler blades if, that is, they are set correctly.

So, if the gap is 30 thousandths the blade or combination of blades should amount to 30 thousandths. The blade values should be marked on them.
If the gap is too wide the blades will have no drag on them, indeed they might not in contact with both contacts.
Or the blades might not go in because the gap between the 2 contacts is too small, in this case there will be a lot of drad on the feeler guage blades.
If either of these is the case release the screw that secures the contact to the base of the distributor and whilst maintaining the required gap tighten the screw and re-measure the gap.
When you have satisfied yourself that you have the correct gap refit the rotor arm ensuring that it is fully pushed home.
refit the distributor cap ensuring that the clips are properly secured.
Turn the key.
I should mention that the screw should be well tightened to stop the contact points from slipping.
This is a fairly straightforward job

Good Luck

How to set points gap massey 35?


you have to bring the cam around till it opens the points fully and then you set the gap. if you have a dwell meter and you have a window on the side of the distributor or cap you can set dwell which is setting the gap, just more precise ( although you may not have this window

Trying to gap a spark plug need to what the numbers are .044 on the gaper can someone show me a image where it should be to gap it. Thanks.


You can use a feeler strip gauge or
a round wire plug setting gauge is the best

They both have .044 marked on them

You sound as though you have no idea about
measurement in thousands of an inch & have
not used the internet to educate yourself

44 thousands of an inch IS the setting,there are no
other numbers,unless your tool has mm on the back side,
then it is 1.1mm

Adjust the parking break on a 2010 f-150?


Hi Jeff, Inspect the back plates of the brakes to see if there is a slot for inserting a feeler gauge. I would think there will be. Insert the feeler gauge into the slot and adjust until friction is felt on the blade. Adjust both rear brakes to the same clearance. Front Disc brakes are self adjusting (As should be the rear?)

There is a tapping noise in the motor but its not knocking I think its a lifter it hasent lost any power and its really not getting worse I would like to know what the spec is for tighing down the lifter...


Depends on which engine you have. If you have


ADJUSTMENT Although it is sometimes possible to reuse an old cylinder head cover gasket, in most cases it makes more sense to purchase a new one before beginning the procedure. Some vehicles may require the use of silicone sealant either with or without a new cover gasket. For more details, please refer to the cylinder head cover procedures in Engine & Engine Overhaul of this repair guide and refer to the gasket manufacturer's instructions.

Z24i Engine
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
For the intake valves: 1-4-5-8 valve clearance is 0.012 in. (0.30mm). For the exhaust valves: 2-3-6-7 valve clearance is 0.012 in. (0.30mm). The pivot locknut torque specification is 12-16 ft. lbs. (16-22 Nm).

  1. The valves must be adjusted with the engine warm, so start the truck and run the engine until the needle on the temperature gauge reaches the middle setting. After the engine is warm, shut it off.
  2. Note the location of any wires and hoses which may interfere with cylinder head cover removal, disconnect them and move them to one side. Remove the bolts holding the cylinder head cover in place and remove the cover. Remember, the engine will be hot, so be careful!

Fig. Fig. 3: With the No. 1 piston at TDC, adjust the top set of valves FIRST; with the No. 4 piston at TDC, adjust the bottom set of valves SECOND-Z24i engine

  1. Rotate the crankshaft until the timing marks indicate that the No. 1 piston is at TDC of the compression stroke. If you're not sure of which stroke you're on, remove the No. 1 spark plug and hold your thumb over the hole. Pressure will be felt as the piston starts up on the compression stroke.
  2. Refer to the accompanying illustration (upper part), then check valves (1), (2), (4) and (6) using a flat bladed feeler gauge. The feeler gauge should pass between the valve stem end and the rocker arm screw with a very slight drag. Insert the feeler gauge straight, not at an angle.
  3. If the clearance is not within the specified value, loosen the rocker arm lock nut and turn the rocker arm screw to obtain the proper clearance. After correct clearance is obtained, tighten the locknut.
  4. Rotate the crankshaft until the timing marks indicate that the No. 4 piston is at TDC of the compression stroke. If you're not sure of which stroke you're on, remove the No. 4 spark plug and hold your thumb over the hole. Pressure will be felt as the piston starts up on the compression stroke.
  5. See the illustration (lower part), then check valves (3), (5), (7) and (8). Check and adjust valve clearance as necessary.
  6. Install the cylinder head cover gasket, the cover itself and any wires or hoses which were removed. Check the engine oil level.

KA24E, VG30i and VG30E Engines
See Figures 4 and 5
These models utilize hydraulic valve lifters. Periodic adjustment is neither necessary or possible. There is however a bleed down procedure that is necessary when the valve train has been disassembled.
HYDRAULIC LIFTER BLEED DOWN
  1. Remove the cylinder head cover.
  2. Check the lifters for proper operation by pushing hard on each lifter with fingertip pressure.
  3. If the valve lifter moves more than 0.04 in. (1mm), air may be inside it. Make sure the rocker arm is not on the cam lobe when making this check.
  4. Install the cylinder head cover.
  5. If there was air in the lifters, bleed the air by running the engine at 1000 rpm for 10 minutes.
