Valve lash specs for a 900 ford tractor


If you want to do it messy. Alot of folks that use these trrractors don't mind. fire it up with the valve cover off and adjust them with it running, tighten them till the noise goes away and then loosen just till you can faintly hear it. you may need to make a caught oil so you don't run the risk of a fire as the oil ( if it's old may burn real easy) .020 exhaust .018 intake works on most lash engines cold. you haven't mentioned the year.

My computer too slow always get the not responding reply.


Eliminate Viruses and Spyware
Step 1

Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
Step 2

Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
Step 3

Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.


Dispose of the Extras

Step 1

Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.

Step 2

Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start. Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.

Step 3

Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.

Step 4

Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your taskbar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.

Run Maintenance

Step 1

Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.) This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.

Step 2

Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel. Run it monthly.

Step 3

Check for disk errors. Sometimes corrupted files slow down your computer. To find and fix these files, Go to My Computer and right-click on C drive. Choose Properties, then Tools.

System is very slow


Try doing this and see if it helps.. Go to Run...Type in MSCONFIG hit enter and then go to selective start up..hit apply and then exit out of that.. Doing this is just going to start up only what is needed for your computer to run instead of all of the programs that is running in the background. If that helps great! If not go back into msconfig and put it back on normal start up. let me know if it helps

My computer is very slow - not responding


Sounds like you have some spyware on your system.. Recomend that you download adawre (free from lavasoft), spybot (free software) and c-cleaner (also free)

Run c-cleaner first , then adaware (keep running till it is clean, sometimes it takes up to 4 times to get them all) -then run spybot, run it till it is clean (again sometimes it takes several runs to clean it all)
Then run c-cleaner again.

Try this first. If does not help, write back and we can go from there.

Computer running slow


Hello.
Usually when a computer get to that point, is time to save your info, format and reinstall the OS, it will be like getting a new computer.
I know this can be a real headache, most the time you have no way to recover some softwares already installed because you don't have the installer and even worse maybe you don't have the Operating System Installer.
However, some responsible vendors make a backup of your system and store it in a separate partition at the moment you buy the PC, it can be named System Backup or something like that.
If you have that file in your hard drive or DVD you can :
Go to - Start - All programs - Accesories - System Tools - Backup and try that posibility.

You can try anything like antispys, antivirus etc but i have never found a way to make a computer in that conditions get fast again, only a clean install will give you that.
I'm sorry.

Good luck.
