that type of hand tool is to be used on items that are idle.

Serious injury and product damage can occur if an attempt is made to clamp this tool on to a moving part.

It would seem that a dial indicator might be the tool of choice for you.

Good luck

I'm looking for the Toyota corrola 1.6 4AF engine valve clearance

will need a micrometer, valve clearance adjustment tool set for shimmed lifters,small magnetic arm, appropriate shim selecting charts (manufacturer will have this if you can get the nec. measurements).
Measure thickness of shims removed (using micrometer) and use this formula where T=Thickness of old shim; A=Valve clearance measured; N=Thickness of new shim required.
Intake valves: N = T + (A - 0.02 mm (0.008 in.)) Exh. valves: N = T + (A - 0.25 mm (0.010 in.))
Then you need to find shims as close as possible to the calculated values.
Valve clearances (cold) are as follows: Intake0.15 - 0.25 mm (0.006 - 0.010 in.) Exhaust0.20 - 0.30 mm (0.008 - 0.012 in.)
Note, if you are not familiar with precision measuring using a micrometer, this may be better left to a trained tech. These are high revving little power plants and you don't want a problem at 8K rpm.

I have a fowler IP54 outside caliper micrometer 7-8" that is zeroed out. There are only 2 keys, a mm/in and zero. How do I reset to have it read 7.0 at 7.0?

Generally, micrometers are "zeroed" to a standard -- an object of a known specific length or diameter. If you have placed a 7-inch standard in the micrometer and brought the spindle into proper contact with that standard, and then zeroed the micrometer at that point, it will be properly set to seven inches. Standard micrometer travel is only one inch, and only that range is usually displayed. The user must then add the standard length to the face display or thimble reading to get the "developed" measurement.

Front end shimmy

Those speeds are usually indicators of tire imbalance...or Radial "runout" of your tires...This means that your tires need to be measured for lateral runout...this confirms that the tires are not round...this IS a tire warranty condition...Hope this helps.

Steering gets really sensitive at highway speeds. Hit a bump then car likes to shake left and right.

Sound like out of balance tire or a separated tire or bearing but, the two most common causes are the ones. I suggest visit some tire shop and would like to have the tires inspected and balanced.

Some customers may comment on shaking/vibration in the steering wheel, floor or seat while driving at highway speeds (typically between 60-72 mph (96-115 km/h)) on smooth roads.

These specific vehicles may be sensitive to various rotating mass assemblies, especially if they are considered to be out-of-balance.

In order to correct this:
1. Visually inspect the tires and the wheels. Inspect for evidence of the following conditions and correct as necessary.
- Missing balance weights
- Bent rim flange
- Irregular tire wear
- Incomplete bead seating
- Tire irregularities
- Mud/ice build-up in wheel
- Stones in the tire tread

2. Set the tire pressure to 30 psi (205 kpa) COLD.

3. If the road test indicates a shake/vibration still exists, check the imbalance of each tire/wheel assembly on a known, calibrated, off-car dynamic balancer. If any assembly calls for more than 1/4 ounce on either rim flange, remove all balance weights and rebalance to as close to zero as possible.

Important: Some GM dealers may have a Hunter GSP9700 Road Force Balancer. This will simplify Step 5 by not requiring dial indicators. If a Hunter GSP9700 machine is available, it may also be used to measure the radial force of the tire/wheel assembly. A guideline here is 18 lbs or less.

4. While on the balancer, measure wheel runout. If radial or lateral runout exceeds .020 in (0.50 mm) for aluminum wheels (.030 in (0.76 mm) for steel wheels), replace the wheel.

5. After confirming wheel balance and wheel runout, if any changes were made, road test the vehicle again.

6. If the smooth road shake/vibration still exists:
Important: The completed worksheet must be attached to the hard copy of the repair order.

Record Radial Force Variation readings if you have access to Hunter GSP9700 Wheel Balance equipment. Use the worksheet shown in this bulletin to record the readings.

If one or more of the tires have RFV readings in excess of 18 lbs, match mount the tires to get below 18 lbs. Readings of 12 lbs. or less are preferable for critical customer concerns.

If the RFV can not be reduced to an acceptable level, replace the affected tire with one obtained locally.

The screened tire program is no longer in effect for Bridgestone/Firestone, Goodyear and Michelin. Low speed screened tires are available from Continental General only, and only for the Buick LeSabre.

Road test the vehicle to ensure the shake/vibration has been resolved.

7. Replace both lower control arms on vehicles built prior to the VIN breakpoints shown. The new lower control arms may provide an incremental improvement to the vehicle ride. Customers who have become "tuned in" to the shake condition may still feel some shake in the vehicle after the new lower control arms are installed.
Refer to Lower Control Arm Replacement, (refer to the Parts Information table below for SI document ID numbers).


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Car wanders back and forth on road will not drive in a straight line. front end has been checked but still have the problem

If the alignment and suspension are has to be a seperated radial tire...first be sure the idler arm and pitman arm are not worn out...(but this should be part of the front end inspection) A belt seperation in the tire can cause vibaration and tracking concerns. Your local tire dealer should be able to measure this for is called "radial tire runout"...the tire is beginning to shape more like an egg. Hope this helps.

My front tires bounce went I drive between 70 mph & 75 mph, I have had my tires spin balanced ,& I have put new shocks on the front ,but I still experience tire bouncing

If they have been spin balanced properly, then the wheels and/or tires are out of round or you have a bent rim. The right way to check this is to use a dial indicator and measure the runout of the tire and the rim. A good tire shop should have the equipment to measure this. There is always some radial runout (difference in distance between the center of rotation and the outer surface, both on the tire and on the wheel). When the tires are mounted on the rims, If the high spots of the tires happen to be aligned with the high spots of the rims, this makes the total runout worse. If the high spots of the tires are aligned with the low spots of the rims, the total runout is better. There is a limit on how much runout is acceptable to give a smooth ride. The tire shop should also measure lateral runout, which is the side-to-side variation in the wheel as it spins, or "wobble". If excessive, this would be a sign of a bent rim. Also, with the vehicle jacked up so the weight is off the wheels, you should check for any looseness in the suspension and bearings, which can also cause vibration.

Check engine light on

If your air filter and fuel filter are recent and your spark plugs are not more than 3yrs, then I'd try replacing the distributor cap(if present) and spark plug cables, or at least clean the connections first and see what happens. EGR valve is another possibility.
