Hi Tim!  I took a look at all fourteen posts you've made in the nearly two weeks you've been with us and I do not see any evidence that any of them are, or have been, locked.  The symbol for a locked post is a little padlock. :)

Valve lash
« on: July 15, 2009, 05:26:04 PM »
Ok, I'm a little stuck here on this one i have a Chiltons manual american cars from 1966 to 1973 book thats REALLY REALLY OLD and i treat it as if its my bible which it is :D but its not very specific. it says under valve clearance adjustment 2000cc engine-set cold: Valves to adjust to depressed
             .008    .010
   No.1     No.6     No.7
   No.2     No.8     No.3
   No.3     No.2     No.5
   No.5     No.4     No.1


 So im a bit confused from this diagram it shows, can someone elaborate further?


Thanks!

The simplest method is to rotate the engine until the lobe is up and then check that valve's clearance (between the lobe and the follower rocker).  For the stock cam, the cold clearances are 0.008" intake and 0.010" exhaust.

I have not tried it but that table will save some effort by minimizing the engine rotations.  Per the 1974 Ford manual, number the cam lobes 1 thru 8 front to back.  Rotate the engine until the number 1 lobe is down (valve compressed) then set the #6 clearance at 0.008" (intake) and the #7 clearance at 0.010" (exhaust).  Continue down the table until all valves are adjusted.
