My first valve is an intake and next one back is exhaust
And do I Jam the woodend wedge in here? (Does anyone have a picture of it in there, a picture is worth a thousand words) How do I get it out when done and how do I get the timing chain off the cam sprocket?
Any ideas on how to tell if the secondary barrel is opening on my carb? I don't hear any noticeable change in sound and it seem to rev slower past 3.5kRPMs. Does the secondary open. Off vac pressure or mechanical?
Mine does not pop it just sounds very rice-y and I don't like it. I want something more quite. I'm not setting any land speed records or doing Dyno pulls so I don't really care about performance. Just want something simple
So I just adjusted the valve lash on my truck. It took about 4 hours, and here's how it went. I followed Dmike's instructions. Put it all back together and it ran really shitty, it would not idle. But it was really quite! So thinking I tighten a valve(s) to much I started over and re adjusted all the valves. And made sure the didn't spin when I tighten them. Again it ran like crap. So I did it a third time and loosened the valves alittle more and when I finished I realized that I had left a vacuum line disconnect I tried running the engine without the vac hose and it ran like crap. Plugged in that vac hose and it ran great. (Palm.....Face) FML I wasted all that time and there still is alot of valve noise. I guess I will get to do it again next week. YAYYYYYYYYYY............
Update: I redid the valve lash and it seems to run alittle more quite, idk if it is placebo or not. Video I made of the before and after, doesn't seem to make a noticeable diffrence
Hey yall what mufflers are you running? I'm in the marker for a new one and also I want to get rid of the fart can on mine.
I don't know who looks at these trucks and says "the only thing I could improve on this truck is the exhaust. It needs to sound like it's taking a s**t everywhere it goes." I can guess though. (Someone carved "Lopez" in to the radiator.)
