Checked my valves...

Recommended Posts

I checked the valves on my 2008 and the intakes were in spec but the exhaust was way out. The odd thing is they weren't tight. There was over .6 clearance on the valve with the decompression release and approximate .45 on the other. When I removed the bucket on valve with Over .60 of clearance the shim wasn't even in contact with the bucket.

Can anyone explain this? I've never heard of valves shrinking:smirk:

I'm just wondering if there is something seriously wrong.

sometimes you can get carbon buildup on your valve mating surface that will "pull" the valve lower into the head, its rare and caused by a poor running condition. otherwise, make sure the camshaft holders are tightened to spec and that your cams and buckets are in good shape
