I have a Hatz1B20 diesel engine and it starts easily cold but will not start when hot?


check the tappet clearance when hot should be .012" inlet and
.14" exhaust
if the engine has a lot of hours on it , it may need a pump rebuild or the injectors rebuilt but I suspect a valve problem from the tappet clearance being to tight cold

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 tappets of a 2.5 diesel turbo mazda


you haven't mentioned if it is a 4 cyl or not. However bring no 1 cylinder up to tdc and watch the tappets of the next cylinder to fire. when that cylinders rockers are in valve overlap situation ( exhaust starting to close and inlet starting to open) then that will be maximum clearance on no 1 cylinder and is when you set the tappets turning the engine until the next cylinder is at TDC watch for the next cylinder again to be in valve overlap and repeat as for no 1 cylinder

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.
