Valve adjustment

Recommended Posts

Wondering if I should be concerned about valve adjustment on my 30 cf. Is that the clicking I hear? Or is it just wear and tear?

With warm engine, 0.007" exhaust, 0.005" inlet. Exhaust valves are 1-4-5-8-9-12-13-16. It won't be easy, kneeling, leaning in over the mudguard and reaching in under the manifolds.

Yeah, as Spinneyhill says, it's no fun, especially getting in there past the fender, under the exhaust manifold and behind the carb.  How noisy are the lifters?  All engines make some noise, but a noticeable clicking means you need to adjust them.

We do have a small advantage over your DL @Taylormade, with a downdraft carburetor! But in my case, I have to work around the steering column and linkages.

 

Of course with a warm engine, you are working around a hot exhaust.
