Forget the torque wrench and just nip it up with a ring spanner and a two finger pull this will give it about 15lb which is about right ,you cannot do this sort of thing with a torque wrench as the threads can be a bit tight with dried oil or whatever and you must feel the thing correctly like playing with a nice female,think the lock nouts are a 13mm spanner size on this car also if the timing belt breaks then its a valve free engine so no damage will occur ,gas are 12 inlet and 14 th inlet if i remember rightly and allow for wear under the fingers but this engine is so well made i have never seen a worn one as yet

How do I adjust the valves on a 1998 old bravada 4.3 vortec


You don't. They are non-adjustable hydraulic lifters. GM's spec for torque on the rocker arm nuts: Tighten the valve rocker arm ball studs to 47 N·m (35 lb ft). Once the valve rocker arm nuts are installed and properly torqued, no additional valve lash adjustment is required.

I have a 1989 chevy 4.3 v6 with screw in studs on the rocker arms. how do you adjust these valves?


Unlike the old style using nuts, that needed special valve adjustments. These do not. Just simply torque each bolt to 20 ft/lbs. There is no sequence or special timing, like getting the cylinder to top dead center. They can all be torqued at the same time.

I need to know the order that you tighten the rocker arms.# 1 piston is at tdc, which int exh valves need to be tightened before i rotate the engine.then which follow suit.i replaced the pushrods so my...


adjust the valves in the order the cylinders fire one cylinder at a time turning the motor for each,slightly loose.start the car and let it warm up a bit then adjust the valves while running.most techs go down one side then the other. you don`t say what motor it is,but some motors valves rocker arm nuts are torqued so you can torque the rocker nut for all the cylinders,then start the car and let it run so the lifters will pump up and thats all you have to do with this type of system,as there is no other adjustment to do.

Check engine and trans light are on a 2001 Isuzu trooper 2 X 4, I took it to auto zone the diagnostic check showed loose band on transmission I know that I need a torque wrench to adjust I need to know...


The band adjustment in not a torque adjustment. Drop the main pan on the transmission. You will see the valve body with filter on it. At the rear drivers side you will see a round dome piece with a flat flange with four bolts in it. Remove the bolts and take this cover off. Now you will see a round piston with an adjustment screw in it. Break the jam nut loose and tighten the allen bolt in until tight. Back off five complete turns and reset jam nut. When you have the pan off, take note of how much clutch material is in it. If you have a lot it could be time to replace the clutches. Also it is a good idea to put in a new filter if you are in there. Good luck
