Tappet setting and ignition timing for 1952 3T

While I can't give you exact specs on this old Triumph which I believe is the 350 twin, try the British Iron Assn, they have clubs almost everywhere.
The valves would be set in the normal fashion, bringing the valve to be adjusted to the base circle of the camshaft and setting the clearance at the valve tip with the ***** and nut on the opposite end of the rocker arm . If you remove the top covers you'll see what I mean.
Now, the valve timing, on all the Triumphs I worked on back in the 60's, you needed to either make a tool from an old spark plug, or buy a factory tool, there are no timing marks. The old factory manuals included a cardboard "degree wheel", we made a tool out of an old sparkplug, removing the porcelain and making a sliding locking pin but you can buy a factory tool. There is a specification for any given engine that the spark must fire so many degrees before top dead center on the firing stroke, this correlates to a measurement for the piston to be so far down the cylinder before TDC. Getting confused?
At any rate the idea is you put the degree wheel on the end of the crank shaft and use a wire pointer, you put the home made (or factory tool) in the spark plug hole, you gently rotate the motor in one direction then the other, until it just bumps the tool, TDC will be exactly between the 2 stopping points so you set the wire pointer on "0" degrees. If the book calls for "10" degrees initial advance you remove the tool and turn the motor in the normal direction of rotation until the next firing stroke, the points should just open as the pointer reaches "10 degrees", if not, the points are adjusted accordingly. This can be determined with a continuity tester, I always had good luck using a piece of cigarette paper to determine exactly when the points open.
Once set, you can just set the tool to that depth to easily check the timing anytime for point adjustment they do wear and change. WHEW!!! Frank

How do I adjust the valves? The starter won't turn over if the valves are in the wrong position

your valves are factory set no adjustment check to see if you have gas down in your crank case only other thing it could be is that you need new valves because they are sticking if push rod need new rods

How do I set the timing

Are you trying to set the ignition or valve timing ? The ignition timing is factory set and changes with engine rpm - you can set the air gap between the flywheel and the ignition unit which should be around 0.25mm (0.010") Excessive air gap will retard the ignition timing. Unless you\'ve had the engine apart, the valve timing won\'t need re-setting. The valve clearances will need setting from time time and the clearance between valve and rocker is 0.1mm and is adjusted with both valves closed and piston at the top of it\'s stroke - you should replace the gasket and copper washer at the same time.

How do i set cam position and timing on an old yamaha xt 500

You didn't say WHY the cam / valve timing needs to be reset. For some reason I get the feeling someone told you that resetting was needed and so you are asking how. Obviously, you may have installed new pistons and that is why the resetting is needed. In either event, when the cam timing is set the valve timing is also set. Other than adjusting valve lash, setting the cam sets the valve timing. Below is a web site where you can do a free download of a factory service manual. The process is not hard but having a manual will be more help and faster help than I can give online.

How do you adjust the pump pressure valve on a Emglo model KU

do you mean the relief valve. it is factory set for your safety and the sefety of the equiptment. also known as the safety relief valve.

if you are talking about working pressure you need to adjust that with the air regulator.

if you are talking the cut out pressure sensor, again this is also factory set for safety. if your equiptment is designed for 110 psi then when your resivor reaches that set point it should cut the motor off and stop running.

What are the valve settings for a 1973 1.6 vw beetle

The original factory setting was 0.004" but they revised it to 0.006" to keep lazy Americans from burning the exhaust valves.

Icemaker not working

Ok, check the temperature to make sure it is on the factory settings. if the temp is set below the factory settings, this will freeze the assembly, in return, not allowing the ice maker to initiate the ice makign procedure properly. if the temp is set to factory settings and the water lines and assembly isnt frozen, thsi will confirm a fualt within the inlet water valve assembly. you will need to replace the water valve assemb ly in this case.

Flapper valve

You will need to adjust the chain. They are just clipped at any point when coming from the factory not at the opyimal length. It will take a little effort to find the desired length as sometimes the trick to getting the valve to remain open longer is opposite of what one would expect. I mean there is a point to where there will be more slack in the line than you might expect to get the valve to stay open for the optimal duration.
Hope this helps you.
