anyone know the valve lash specs for this motor?
yeah, but the specs in the FSM are probably taken from a cold engine with warm engine tolerances, because if they're measured warm then there should be a specific temparature at which to measure clearancessamo said:
When the car runs, it's warm, so it would seem to me that adjusting the valves when the car is warmed up would give you the correct adjustments for the majority of the life of the car.
that makes senseBy Nature said:

wes, i was trying to get my valves adjusted a while back and had a problem with the local dealership. they kept telling me that the lifters were hydraulic and no need to adjust them... well I talked to Greg at Mossy and he confirmed that they were hydraulic... I have found many places that have said the 95+ GA's were hydraulic. I think it uses the shims for major adjustments...wes said:I have a completely disassembeled cylinder head sitting here. It's a direct acting valve train. The FSM recommends checking the valve clearance as part of the 30 and 60K service intervals. I recommend you pick up the FSM, not only does it outline the given tolerances it also show you how to remove the shis=ms without removing the cam shafts. When you do check them, the FSM recommends that you check them when the engine is warm, this way you get accurate readings with expansion.
