300ci in-line six(valve lash&timming adj.)

Can any one help me with this I've seemed to have lost my manuals and don't want to pay for them again, because if I do I know that I'll find them shortly there after. I've all but done a ground up on a "74" F-100. I can hear a little ratteling going on in the valve train. I'm familiar with Chevy's set up on the valves just haven't done it on a Ford. If anyone has the specs. I'd greatly appriciate it. The eng. only has about 8000mi. on a fresh 1995 UPS Ford crate eng. that wasn't used after UPS went to the Cummins. Have driven it on and off over the last 5 years. But with econo. it has to become daily driver. If you need a list of what I've done contact me and i'll give you a list.

its the same as on chevies zero lash plus one full turn to center the lifter plungers inside

make sure its not exhaust manifold leak though

sometimes this sounds like lifter ticks

it can fool you

if they are adjusted properly and still tick then they need cleaned or replaced

i would probably just replace them at this age and mileage

and the odds are also that the rocker arms and pushrods are totally worn down also if there is no ball on the end of the rods anymore

ive owned quite a few trucks with the 240 and 300 sixes in them my first vehicle ever was a 69 f100 with the 240 in it when i was 16 i did alot to it i put on split dual headers and another cylinder head because the original was junk due to severely worn valve seats, and new clutch and i learned alot from it.

i like the ford sixes they run forever so as long as the carb will stay together

good luck

I agree sometimes leaking manifold can sound like lifter tick.

I think the best way to adjust hydraulic lifters is to:

1. get engine up to temp.
2. Verify each lifter is getting oil.
3. Adjust lifters while engine is running. If you have an old valve cover, cut slots and adjust thru slots to avoid mess.
4. Loosen 1st lifter till it ticks. Tighten 1st lifter till stops ticking. Tighten 1 full turn after stops ticking.
5. Repeat on remaining lifters. Done.
