From an 05 kxf, intakes are +/- .005 and exhaust is +/- .008..... They should be the same with 06 to 09.

How to set the valves on SV 600 KOHLER


Valve Gap IN .005 EX .007

With engine at TDC of compression stroke, insert correct size flat feeler gauge (see below) between appropriate valve stem and rocker arm. Tighten adjustment nut with a wrench until a slight drag is felt
on feeler gauge. Hold nut in position and torque set screw (T15 Torx drive) to 5.5 N·m (50 in. lb.). To prevent damage to nut, torque Torx screw only.

Perform same adjustment procedure on other valve.

How to adjust valves on fs110 stihl grass trimmer


you need to go get a valve cover gasket set from the dealer.. it comes with the required feeler gauge to do this... then put the piston on top dead center... look for the magnet to pass the ignition coil. and adjust to where the feeler gauge is barely grabbed by the rocker arm. be careful of the socket you use, it needs to be thin enough to not touch the rocker arm...

Wht is the procedure in making tappet clearance of honda vtec 98


for adjusting the valves look for a sticker under the hood with valve clearance specs or a service manual.You will need appropriate feeler gauges and a 10mm wrench and a flat tip screw driver.If the car is a 4cylinder the cam gear will have 4 notches on it they represent watch cylinder to adjust if it is a six cylinder the front cam will have notches on it with numbers on it you adjust the valves of the cylinder number that is lined up with the timing marks.I recommend using a vernier caliper and setting it to the correct clearance that the valves are supposed to be set to and drag the feeler gauge through it so you can get use to what the correct clearance feels like on the feeler gauge.If you have never done this I would take it to a good shop because this does take some skill and drivability problems can occur if done incorrectly.Good Luck!

Rattle nosie on tappets on engine start up,do tappets or valves need adjustment,and if so what are settings,and the best way to do the job,regards eamo.


Sometimes a dirty oil filter will cause lack of oil to the top end at startup.
As soon as the oil warms, it flows better and faster and hence the noise goes away after warm up.

If you need valves adjusted, the motor must be at TDC on compression stroke(both valves closed)
The motor must be cold do not try to adjust the valve clearance on a warm engine.

On TDC, pull the valve covers and check the clearance on the intake and exhaust valves by inserting a feeler gauge under the tappet.
INTAKE should be : .03-05mm
EXHAUST should be .05-.08 mm

Im sure you don't need a valve adjustment. but if you do: Put Engine on TDC
Loosen the locknut with a 9 or 10 mm wrench, stick the feeler gauge under the tappet, and tighten the little square tipped valve adjuster screw clockwise until you feel friction on the feeler guage.
Enough friction that the feeler gauge feels tight but you can still slide it back and forth.
Not carefully tighten the locknut. Check the feeler guage during tightening to make sure it didn't get too tight or too loose. Once you set the clearance, move to the next valve, and repeat the process using the other feeler guage.
Once both are done put the covers back on and your done,

NOTE: You may have to remove seat, gas tank, airbox, and side covers to get to the covers.

Can you please give me the tappet settings for a Honda civic 2004 1.6 Vtec please.


Do you mean 1.7L? I do not see a 1.6L in the manual. Instructions from autozone.com are pasted below.

lash:

Intake, 0.007-0.009 in (0.18-0.22mm).

Exhaust, 0.009-0.011 in. (0.23-0.27mm)

Civic
1.7L Engine

NOTE Adjust valves only when the cylinder head temperature is less than 100 degrees F.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Note the radio security code and the radio presets.
  3. Remove the ignition coil cover. Remove the ignition coils. Remove the throttle cable clamps and harness holder from the cylinder head cover.
  4. Remove the cylinder head cover retaining bolts. Remove the cylinder head cover from the engine.
  5. Remove the grommet from the upper cover and disconnect the camshaft position (CMO) sensor connector. Remove the upper cover.
  6. Set the number one piston at TDC. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be at the top, and the TDC marks on the pulley should line up with the top edge of the cylinder head.
  7. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number one.
  8. Rotate the crankshaft 180 degrees counterclockwise. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be toward the exhaust side of the cylinder head.
  9. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number three.
  10. Rotate the crankshaft 180 degrees counterclockwise and bring the number four piston to TDC.
  11. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number four.
  12. Rotate the crankshaft 180 degrees counterclockwise. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be toward the intake side of the cylinder head.
  13. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number two.
  14. Install the cylinder head cover.
  15. As required, reprogram the ECM/PCM engine idle characteristics. Be sure all electrical items are OFF.
  16. Start the engine. Hold the idle speed at 3000 RPM-s in park or neutral until the radiator fan comes on or the temperature reached 194 degrees.
  17. Let the engine idle for about five minutes with the throttle fully closed.
  18. If the radiator fan comes on during the five minutes, do not count this toward the five minute programming time.
  19. Set the clock.

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.

Yes I need to know how to properly adjust the valves on my 87'Yamaha, 350 fourwheeler.


Hi
Same as any four stroke engine. Usually cold. remove the fuel tank and Rocker covers, small inspection bolt near top of gear case.
Simply rotate engine to TDC (With spark plug out) (Top dead centre) as indicated by aligning timing marks through inspection bolt hole.
Using feeler gauge with correct thickness selected (As per manufacturers handbook) (I do not have them)
Now insert the feeler gauge between the rocker arm and tip of the valve. If you do not know how to identify an exhaust valve to an inlet one the exhaust ones are by the exhaust pipe, inlet ones are by the intake manifold. If tappet settings are the same for both then no problem, if different (Inlets always less than the exhaust)
When adjusting loosen lock nut and gently alter gap until you can just pull feeler gauge out, recheck after tightening. Be patient as some can take along time to adjust correctly unless you have done a few.

I found the valve specs for an adjustment on my 2006 yamaha custom 1100 on line the exhaust is at .12 and intake at .07 but i am still getting a backfire and now i can hear the valves ticking what could i...


If they are ticking, they are set too loose. try tightening them until they seat snuggly against the feeler gauge, tighten the nut, then wiggle the feeler gauge out. I am assuming you know the valves need to be adjusted while the piston for that cylinder is at top dead center?

I did a valve adjustment and now it wont start


You adjusted the valves too tight. Back off of the adjustment before you break parts. You Have to set the rocker arm clearance when the engine is cold. (Not warm, not hot)

Use a feeler gauge.
The clearance for the Intake valves is .007 to .009. (7 to 9 thousandths)
The clearance for the Exhaust valves is .009 to .011 (9 to 11 thousandths)
You want a slight drag when you pull the feeler gauge through. This technique takes a certain amount of 'Feel'.
