  1. I am courious why you do it that way.. Just about every other video, shows a different way. Can it be done both ways? I have never done it that way before. That is why I ask.

  2. FYI:: the lash adjustment on my intek 190 is .004-.006 on the intake valve (ONLY), and .009-.011 on the exhaust valve. They do this to allow tor the extra expansion the exhaust side will exp during normal run times. These specs vary dept on model #. Thought you should know.

  3. Good, simple example of how to set the valve lash. The specs vary dept on the model #, etc (as I have found). Check to be sure or eng damage may result. These specs are also available on the ole "inner-web". Thanks for the vid. Spot-on and simplistic. Sure has helped others…

  4. YES BUT HOW DO YOU INSTALL THE ROCKERS BEFORE YOU DO THE ADJUSTMENT .. LIKE HOW MANY TURNS DO YOU MAKE ON THOSE CENTER BOLTS HOLDING THE ROCKERS ON BEFORE YOU DO ANY ADJUSTMENTS ON THE TORQUE SCREWS?

  5. The nut is what opens or closes the gap, and the torqued stud is what unlocks or locks the adjusting nut. I just did mine today, maybe it can be done both ways but I don't see how.
