Re: Correct valve lash makes a huge difference
Well, as the Crane web site says, i set my cold lash 5 to 6 thou less than the cam card suggests as i have alloy heads(21 thou instead of 26). Well not long after i wipped all the cam lobes and have been told the reduced lash may have caused it. I am now setting exactly what the card says to, and the cam has survived well.
The trick to setting rollers acuratly is to close down the posi lock until there is a very small amount of feel on the feelers. Then lock the grub screw tight while holding the posi lock steady. Then turn the posilock with the 9/16 spanner that last bit to get the correct feel with the feeler gauge, and it will stay set accuratly. Took me a bit to get the hang of it, but as STROKEXD said, it has never ran better.
