Bench test valve lash?

Recommended Posts

Basket case engine getting put together. New 06 R head w new kw ss valve kit, new 02 R cam, new oem cam chain, new wiseco piston on a 05 X. Since it was a basket case i didn’t find any valve shims. Is there a bench test way to get the valve lash close so I won’t be removing the cam multiple times? Yes I have a hot cams shim kit. Thanks

None that I'm aware of.   You have to have the cam bolted in at least once to take a measurement.

Let's not be lazy to figure this out!
