STEP SEVEN (7):
#2 and #4 Exhausts
I'm going to be honest, doing the exhaust valves requires the patience of a horny nun at an orgy. It's so much easier with the engine out, but alas, I don't have any exhaust gaskets.
Grab that 14mm socket and turn the crankshaft COUNTERCLOCKWISE
half a turn until it looks like this
The exhaust camshaft will be pointing straight down
Grab your 0.007" feeler and stab it in there. Same as the intakes, it'll be too tight so grab the .006" and see it it goes. Adjusting is the same as the intakes with one major exception: You cannot see the locknut or the adjuster. It's kinda like The Force (or sex): when it slides in just right, you'll know it.
What I did with the #2 valves was to set the adjuster at .007", lightly tighten the locknut, recheck the clearance. Then I did a little something like this:
Grab the small pliers and hold the hex key:
Now you can tighten the locknut while holding the adjuster in place. Got that all set? Good, let move on the to
STEP EIGHT (8):
#2 and #4 Intakes
This one is so easy, I'm going to run through it quickly...rotate crank to look like this:
And the cams look like this:
Check, loosen, adjust, tighten, recheck, done. Ok people, move along, nothing to see here.
STEP NINE (9)
#1 and #3 Exhaust Valves
Again, you should be getting good by now, so run right through it. Rotate crank COUNTER CLOCKWISE
to look like this:
and the cams look like this:
(funny lettering on the exhaust cam sprocket visible). Same as step 7
. Check, loosen, adjust, tighten, recheck. Don't forget that you can use the pliers to hold the ajuster in place while you tighten the locknut.
