If you just want to swap lifters it's recommended to get the newer generation lifters that have larger oil wholes that don't get blocked and cause lifter tick. new lifters should be soaked in diesel and be sure to keep magnest away from them so you don't magnetize the ball valve inside.

SOHC or DOHC?

There is a guide here that does just the lifters not valve stem seals
http://www.stealth316.com/misc/installing_new_lifters.doc
This should get you going in the right direction. I beleive i used a tool that is a flat bar with a 45 angle to press the lever down so i could pull the rocker and lifter but it's been a while and i don't know where i got the tool. it's flat with a red plastic coated handle.


If you are doing lifters then look at doing the Valve Stem Seals also. Saves you burning oil and keeps the engine running cleaner.
http://www.3si.org/forum/f58/make-your-own-valve-spring-compressor-15-a-217700/

official tool to compress springs is very expensive but there's a home made solution above. this works but takes some muscle and patience.
another solution that requires removing the cams
http://www.3si.org/forum/f1/vss-installation-removal-installation-tool-tips-460376/

I'd say the lifters is pretty easy but valve stem seals requires a little more tools wise and time.

How to fix nosiy vavle on 1994 chevrolet c 1500/myself


The way a mechanic would do it is to remove the valve covers, feel for rockers that are ticking with your fingers. Note the locations. Pull the intake off and replace the hydraulic lifters for the offending one(s). If you find several, just replace the whole set (16).

Alternatively if you are really skilled is to remove valve covers and distributor. Put a small light down the distributor hole to illuminate the interior lifter valley. Using a small magnet and etc, fish the offending lifter out and up the distributor hole. Reverse to install a new lifter. I have fished lifters out like this from the very front of the engine. The key is to illuminate the engine valley with a small good light. You can see what you are doing by looking through the push rod holes.

1993 3000GT LIFTER TICK


generally a car of that age is going to have a lifter ticking. it's usually nothing to worry about but can be fixed. basically you will have to take of the manifold covers and unless you know which one is ticking you will need to adjust/replace all of them. just don't get a lifter ticking confused with an engine knocking.

there is a heat sencing unit on the fan or radiator which cuts in and out to let the engine maintain operating temperature. If this is faulty, the fan will never go on and the car will overheat.

If you can not find this switch let me know.

Are the valves adjustable?


hi, on your vehicle the valves are not adjustable after about 1990 they started using hydraulic lifters, so if you have top end engine rattle then the chances are these lifters will need replacing or worse case the cam lobes could be worn if this is the case then your going to need to do a top end rebuild.

to replace the hydraulic lifters your going to need to remove the cams so as you can get to the lifters under neath the cup they sit under so its quite a big job.

the older type valves were a lot easier as you could adjust them with screwdriver and measuring guages but they started using the new ones as they made less noise and lasted longer, but the downside to this was that you need to do more work to replace the lifters.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
