Valve Lash (Clearance) Adjustment


All of the engines are equipped with hydraulic valve lifters that do not require periodic valve lash adjustment. Adjustment to zero lash is maintained automatically by hydraulic pressure in the lifters. Also, the rocker arm retaining nuts are tightened to a specific torque value (refer to the rocker arm procedure) to provide proper rocker arm placement.
