The tolerance for rocker arms is very critical and must be exact. If you aren't knowledgeable in this field and have already tightened them I suggest you have your vehicle towed to a vehicle mechanic shop and have a professional straighten out what you have done in order to minimize the damage.

I have a 1973 Ford F 100 had an oil leak coming from the intake manifold so what taking the manifold off I notice I had to take the rocker arms off now I've taken the pushrods off and I'm ready to...


You can do it statically or dynamically. For static adjustment, make sure the valve is way off the cam lobe, tighten until there is a drag when twisting the pushrod. Make sure the rod is properly seated at both ends. Then add 1/2 to 3/4 turn.
For dynamic adjustment, put them all on and take out play. Cover the exhaust manifolds and compartment where the oil will squirt. Start the engine and adjust each one until it just stops clicking. Back off to let it click again and then tighten again until it just stops clicking. Do this on each rocker, and then add 1/2 - 3/4 turn to all. This is messy but more accurate. Replace the oil that was lost.

Torque settings for rocker shaft for a 1998 7k toyota 1800


There is no such thing as a rocker shaft. There is a cam shaft, rocker arm assembly, Rocker arm, lifter etc. If you are talking about the rocker arm assembly that bolts to the head, it is 58 Ft/lbs. If you are talking about the actual rocker arms, you tighten them till they contact the push rod and the valve stem and then you put oil control clips on so the oil does not spray and you start the engine. You tighten them down till the chattering noise goes away, then back them off 1/8 to 1/4 turn.

Back off on all the rocker arms and check to make sure you didn't bend any push rods then make sure you are starting on #1 Cylinder and readjust, when it starts you can finish the adjustment by backing off rocker arm nut till you here it TICK than tightentill TICK IS GONE. I do not have info on the fireing order for primary adjustment but you should be able to find on line complete instructions, Go to ASK.COM and ask for Chev 350 Valve Adjustment their are several to choose from and even YOUTUBE Videos on it.

1996 vortec 5.7. how do I adjust rocker arms when the motor is cold?


these are adjusted the same way 5.7 litre motors have been adjusted since GM started making this size of motor. with every thing in place tighten rocker nuts down until about 1/16" threads is protruding above nut. once the car starts allow the engine pressure to build and oil is squirting around rockers. then with engine running tighten down rockers that are noisy until the noise has just gone. then back off nut until it starts to clatter then tighten 3/4 of a turn. repeat to all the other rockers and your done.

How to adjust lifters on 94 rodeo


you can do this by removing the valve cover, start with the rocker arms loose. As you tighten them, listen for engine change, then move to the next, you might have to keep going over them until engine runs smooth. Hope this helps.
