You need to go to O'reillys and purchace a Haynes repair manual either for your car or you can use the book for S-10 etc. The S-10 book number is #24070 (831) and in the book on page 2D-7 Paragraph 6 you will find Valve lash-adjustment. I think that the book sells for about $15.00.

What is the clearance between the rocker arm and the valve spring in a GM 2.2L motor

there is no specification for what you want
the valve clearance is between the end of the rocker arm and the end if the valve stem
the stem end is proud of the spring retainer so if your rocker arm is touching the spring retainer , you have a big problem as for the procedure it is set out in the workshop manual but if you don't have a manual it can be done like this
you will need the firing order of the engine first
now adjust no 1 piston valves when the next piston to fire has the valves in the rock position
that is the exhaust valve just closing as the inlet is just opening a bit of movement of the crank makes either valve move up or down
adjust no 1 piston valves
now move on to the next piston to fire and adjust the valves that were rocking
follow that procedure until all the valves are adjusted
for example
on a 4 cylinder engine with a firing order of 1--3--4--2
bring up no 1 piston and adjust the valves when the valves on no 3 piston are rocking
next piston to fire is no 4 so adjust no 2 piston valves
next piston to fire is no 2 so adjust the valves when no 1 valves are rocking
the procedure is the same for engines with any number of cylinders

.006" both valves
when no3 piston has valve rock adjust no 2 cylinder valves
when no 1 has valve rock adjust no 3 cylinder valves
go google and type in valve clearance of deutz 3 cylinder engine
there is another method explained where inlet of one cylinder and exhaust

Valve lash 5.9 360

The 360 gas motor uses Hydraulic lifters and no valve adjustment . If you're running a hydraulic valvetrain it's not really lash, it's preload. You adjust it on the back of the lobe when the valve is fully closed. There are charts out there that tell you what the correct adjustment order is, but the way I have been doing it is: Turn the motor to #1 tdc and adjust both valves on #1 Then hand turn the crank 90* or until you reach the next slot in the harmonic balancer- adjust both valves on #8 and so on. The slots indicate tdc firingfor each cylinder. Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

Valve clearance.. i don't know the exact adjustment

There are two ways to find the Exact Value Adjustment.

1. Valve adjustments are usually labeled on a sticker in the engine bay.

2. Valve adjustment will also be mentioned in the user manual, if you don't have ask your nearest Hundai service center for details.

As it is a very old version, i have scraped the data.

Thank you

My valves are ticking on my 97 doge 2500 pick up it has the 360 magnum can i adjust them or not .....

Ticking sound is normal from a health diesel engine is normal.

Diesel engine that does a lot of towing or carry large payload can use a head adjustment every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I would keep tabs on the valve cover for oil leak.

Take it in the shop when the valve cover start to leak.

Do the valve adjustment,the valve cover and oil change at the same time.

Shell ROTELLA T Multigrade SAE 15W-40 is my prefer motor oil.

Can engine valves be adjusted on the 1997 nissan

valve tick is completely normal on a KA24DE. if you dont, start running a full synthetic oil. KA's are bullet proof, the motor will last 300k with no real problems...valve tick is nothing. I own 2 nissan 240sx, they have the same motor as your truck. i have a good amount of experience with them. hope that helps
