No, they will always tap a little. If they tap a lot, git bigger ones until you meet spec lash. Loud tapping can wear down the cam lobe. OK?

2012 Kawasaki VN 1700 Voyager sounds like a valve tap coming from Engine. It will go away after riding and warming up. Is it a valave tap or something else?


Hi,the sound you are getting is normaly to do with the camshaft cleerance between the camshaft lob and the shim on the valve,if when the sound gose away when the engine is hot its the gap getting smaller due to exspantion,I would leave it unless you can hear the sound when engine is hot,if you cant live with it the whay it is the only way to sort it out is to get a works manual and do the valve cleerances,which means takeing the rocker cuver off and checking the gaps between each lobe and shim and replacing with the right shim to make the gap right,hope this was some help.

HOW TO FIX BUGABOO HANDLE EXTENSION LEVER


I must admit I'm not impressed with the new lever locks, the old wing nuts are far stronger but are more fiddly to adjust. If your lever type lock starts slipping here's how to fix it. The handle extension lever is held in by the pin it pivots on, cut the tip of a smaller size nail and use it to tap out the pin.macnutz_3.jpgmacnutz_7.jpg
There should be a rubber block and a matching steel shim under the lever. The lever pushes on the shim and the shim on to the rubber block jamming it against the handle.macnutz_9.jpgmacnutz_8.jpg The steel shim is the usual problem. it slips out. Open the other side and use that shim to get a copy cut. A piece cut out of a tin can or scrap piece of metal could work or goggle "shim" to find a local supplier. If you are lucky and all the parts are there and the rubber block is just a bit worn you can add an extra shim. I used a piece of edge banding just because it was in my workshop it's thin, easy to cut and water proof.macnutz_6.jpg

Camshaft change


This is not s small job and should not be attempted unless you have a very good knowledge on timing systems and such? Luckily this is a overhead cam system, once you have removed all air system and hoses you can unscrew cylinder rocker cover to reveal cam. You will have to take cam cover off from side of engine, then you will have to locate cam timing tensioner, scratch cam timing wheel or mark with nail varnish for exact position! Then undo bolt to remove wheel, you will need a wedge to remove this/them if dual (this is the most important thing to get precise) then slacken tensioner to release belt after which you should be able to systematically undo cam shim bolts and release cam shaft, (make sure you make note of assembly for brackets as major part of healthy engine! If you shim s look worn then Defo replace them . After replracing New cam shaft line up old wheel with the timing marks and then you will be ready to replace timing belt and lining up cam position then tighten up belt and replace cam cover and rocker cover, if when you try to turn engine over you hear tapping noise, turn off immediately and ask garage to set timing up for you but remember to inform them of your escapades for them to fix. If no tapping noise then it done and you deserve a big pat on the back. Good luck and hope this helps?

Left side of the push arm keeps losing grip and falls to the bottom.


I'm going to assume you have the newer lever style handle extension locks. If it's the wing nut type let me know.

I have a 94' Isuzu rodeo with a fast tap


alot of the 4clys had ajustable tappets that might need adjusting
V6 have tappets adjusted also but are shims on top of bucket over valve spring, this is hard to do as you may need to change shims to get correct valve clearances suggest dealer to do.
if the noise comes in and out while maintaining 1500-2000rpm when stationary it is possibly worn valve guides which is common on high km vehicle.(head repairs)
