'66 Galaxie 240ci Valve clearance settings????

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I have a '66 Galaxie with the 240ci (inline 6) engine and I hope someone can help me with some info on what the valve clearances should be for inlet and exhaust and also for manifold to cylinder head???.

I've searched through the workshop manual for hours and can't seem to find the info that I need so any help would be greatfully received!!:confused: many thanks, debbie

Those use hydraulic lifters and are set at zero valve lash. Snug them down until quiet and give them 1/2 turn extra. Some like less than 1/2 and others like more, but 1/2 should do the job. Pick up a Motors manual for exact specs.
