Hydraulic valve adjustment
Helping square away a kids project camaro.The engine was running really poor. popping but driveable. Checked the wires and firing order and tdc. Engine heat cycled a few times removed covers then retorqued bolts. the rockers were down pretty far on the threads.
When he adjusted hydraulic rockers the kid went compressed the lifter and a extra 1/4. Oil was squirting across the fenders.
My method, I started the engine and backed off the rockers till it ticked. Then snugged them down right till the ticking stoppped. You dont need a extra quarter turn if there are no noises afterwards. Correct? or do you still go 1/4 past? I never had a problem just dont want to see it again.
Now 150 psi cranking compression wide open.
Mother handed me a list of reciepts. Looks like a nice build , k cam kit, rpm int. When i said the car might break the 15 seconds , the kid frowned. When did 15 flat equal a slow car?
