I hope you see this soon because I’m in the middle of a valve adjustment right now and I have some questions.
The intake side seems to be going well and only needs minor adjusting however the exhaust side is a little more concerning.
The exhaust side is much tighter, that was expected as you said as much in the video. However when I go to adjust them I feel like the gauge is actually just compressing the valve spring because when I go to double check it, that valve is tight immediately.
I am also noticing play on the rocker assemblies. For example if I’m working on # 2 it along with 1 & 4 have loose rockers but valve #3 does not. Shouldn’t it be the opposite? With the valve I’m working on having a stiff rocker assembly and no play?
Here is how I am adjusting them:
I use the power steering pump bolt to rotate the engine so that the cam lobe of the valve I am working on has the long side of the lobe sticking up. I have the lobe aligned with the arrows that are on the case (cam bearing caps?) for the intake side. On the exhaust side I have the lobes facing up so they align with some markings that are in the center of the cam bearing caps.
What I’m I doing wrong?
