Okay, I FINALLY got some time to work on my engine. I am at the last part of the major. I just finished putting the cams back on banks 5-8, and set the timing marks to TDC. But before I went any further, I figured it would be a good idea to recheck my clearances before the belt goes on. I'm in California so I have the stupid smog crap to deal with. Anyway. My inlet clearances weren't too bad. My tollerances are .20 - .25mm for the inlet, and .30 - .35mm for the exhaust. Most of the inlets clearances are .20mm, but I have a couple that are a bit tight at .178mm. The same for the exhaust. Most of them are right at .30mm but I have a couple that are off a bit, at .279mm. My question is can I get away with a few of the valves being tight? They are only one off. Cause I really don't wanna take the freekin cams off again. This is so frustrating. I haven't mess with the cam timing at all. I left it as is. So I'm hoping that a few valves being tight will be okay. If they won't, I'm gonna have to remove the stinking cams all over again, and I just torqued them down.
