Inlet .0024 (two and a half thou.)
Exhaust .006" (six thou.)
(6) Set the valves:
Set the valves on the cylinder on the COMPRESSION stroke. Put the wring wrench on the locknut on top of the valve, and turn it anti-clockwise. It will be tight. Turn it about one quarter turn, and keep the wrench on it. Then, using the crescent wrench turn the square headed screw either in or out depending whether you need more or less clearance. We are talking about fractions of a turn here. Then lightly lock the locknut, holding the square headed screw with the crescent wrench so it doesn't move, and check the clearance. Repeat until it's exactly right. When it's exactly right, tighten the locknut. Recheck.
(7) Rotate the engine one revolution exactly:
Shine the flashlight into either sparkplug hole and rotate the engine slowly so that the piston goes down once and comes back up. Stop when it's at Top Dead Centre.
(8) Now do the other cylinder:
Check the gap and set if necessary the other cylinder's valves
Repeat steps (5) and (6) for the other cylinder.
(9) Button it up:
Replace the valve adjustment covers, making sure to keep the gaskets or o-rings in place, the bike will have one or the other.
That's all there is to it!

When its cold it starts without problems. i cant start up warm engine on yamaha xs 400.?


Check the valve lash. Sometimes, if the clearances get too tight, when the valves are hot the get long enough that they won't seat properly. I don't have the manual, but I'll bet .003 on the exhaust and .002 on the intakes are close. Put the motor at TDC and check them with a feeler gauge.
If they're not within tolerance, find the factory specs and proceedure for adjustment. This is an often overlooked part of routine maintenance. Good luck!

What is the valve lash adjustment settings on a craftsman 6.5hp tiller


Hi bbg713,
I hope I can help you out. The valve lash (tappet clearance) on engines of approx this size should be 0.005-0.007 inches (0.13-0.18 mm) for intake valve and 0.007-0.009 inch 0.18-0.23 mm for exhaust valve (cold engine). Adjust tappet clearance by grinding end of valve stem to increase clearance or grind valve seat deeper to decrease clearance. I hope I have helped you a bit. Any more questions are welcome. Regards and good luck. Denis.

Rattle in top end


Have you adjusted the valve lash lately?
With engine COLD....
Valve Clearance Intake: 0.11 - 0.15mm ( = 0.004 - 0.006")
Valve Clearance Exhaust: 0.16 - 0.20mm (= 0.006 - 0.008")
29mm shim kits with a wide range of sizes are available from aftermarket dealers. (motion pro shim tool works great)
Also a weak valve spring will cause the valve to "float" and make a rattle noise...as well as excessive camshaft end play.
Make sure your valve train is getting proper lubrication.
Good luck....i hope this helps
