Noisy Valves

Recommended Posts

I have read a couple of past threads about engines being noisy because of incorrect valve clearence.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when your valve clearences tighten up (less clearence) shouldn't your engine become quieter?? or have less rattles?

Why is it that they rattle more:excuseme:

I had a rattle in my intakes when I did a valve job. I tightened them up by .002" and the noise went away.

Your first thought was correct.
