I can give you Briggs and Stratton figures for valve clearances of an engine this size. You may have to experiment a little till it runs right. ...you can adjust the intake valve (when it is closed) while the exhaust is open and adjust the exhaust valve (when it is closed) while the intake is open if you can tell...or ya can adjust them when the piston is at TDC on compression stroke (both valves closed). Intake: .004"-.006" Exhaust .004"-.006" (Vertical crankshaft)....for horizontal crank .004"-.006" Intake.....Exhaust is .006"-.011" Hope this helps . Here is a briggs engine specs chart..can';t find the Chinese engine listed anywhere http://www.briggsandstratton.com/engines/support/frequently-asked-questions/~/media/71BB9DA0BD4D4C19A0DA611923A0B80A.ashx

I have a 24hp vtwin B&S engine. I need to know whether to make the valve adjustment with the engine hot or cold. Would please answer with this information? Thank you.


you can set the clearances cold but the measurements will be .002" bigger to allow for valve stem length increase when hot
example --a setting of .012" hot will be .014" cold
Hot is best as the stems do not always expand uniformly so valves in one engine may expand more or less in another engine
always check the clearance when hot
B&S engines are noted for valve stem stretch for a period from new so a regular monitoring of the hot clearance is a good idea ( check say every 20 hours operation for the first few periods until the clearance remains steady)

Valve clearance


are the valves adjustable some of these small engines valves are just pre set and when the seats and valve wear this causes the valve to sink further into the head closing the gap and in time stops the engine from running a quick fix is to grind the top of the valve stem slighty

Hi can someone tell me the valve clearances for a gsxr 750 wp 1993 please


There is more to properly setting the cams than just the clearances. Cam position, rotor position relative to sprocket position, and valve "2 cylinder sets" in a given rotor position. Below is the start of the process. FixYa limits the size of the answer files. My email address is tombones49@gmail.com. Email me and I can reply with a pdf file of the four pages in the service manual. Two of the pages are shim selection charts, Intake and Exhaust. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_255.gif

Noise like valve adjustment too loose. how do I adjust valve clearance? thank you.


Valve adjustment is not a simple task, the valve clearances will need "shimming" these are thin pieces of metal to take up the gap or slack between valve and rocker arm. You will need service manual and some feeler gauges, and purchase a set of shims

Valve Clearance Valve clearance is there to allow the valves to cool in between combustion events (spark), and to make sure the valve closes properly and contains the combustion explosion. You need to cool the valves a little bit, the exhaust valve moreso than the inlet, as it's what sees the most heat as spent burnt gases go past it into the exhaust port. Run too little clearance and you'll cause the valve to "weld" a little bit to its' seat every time it closes, and then take seat metal off again when it opens. Do this enough times and you burn out the valve seat and need the head reconditioned. However, by running less clearance, the valve stays open for that little but longer, and you get more air in and out of the motor, and make more power. Run too much clearance and your motor just sounds like a diesel and loses power and tappet rattle annoys you while you're driving, so it's better to err on the side of caution.
The stock valve clearance (0.008" inlet / 0.012" exhaust, warm) is pretty good for any of the cams I've listed above, they're well-sized street cams, not really wild top heavy race cams that require super high compression to work, so don't be afraid to close the valves up a bit from the suggestions of the cam grinder, which will usually say between 0.010" and 0.014". There are a few ways to set your valve clearances:
Yellow Book Method This is from the factory 3K/4K/5K engine manual, aka The Yellow Books. It's the quick and lazy method.
Set engine to #1 TDC. Crank pulley timing mark should be on 0, distributor rotor should be pointing towards spark plug 1 or 2. Set tappets (counting from the front) 1, 2, 3 and 5. Rotate engine 360 degrees, crank pulley to 0 again, distributor rotor turned 180 degrees. Set tappets 4, 6, 7 and 8.
Nine Method I've never really gotten into doing this, takes too much time and maths for my liking :P Rotate the engine through its' range of movement, as one valve is "on the rock" of its' max lift, subtract the valve number from 9 and that's the tappet you should be setting. For example, if #8 valve is open, set clearance on valve #1. If valve #7 is open, set clearance on #2. And so on.
Stewart uses this method, and rotates the camshaft through its entire base circle and sets the clearance at the highest point. Which is a pretty good idea, as it compensates for the possibility that the base circle has been ground unevenly, and allows you to run the proper valve clearance that you want to run, instead of something that may be a few thou larger in reality.
