Probably 29?
cold is usually 22 ish but valve type will play a big part, the only way to set them properly is hot... and its a bitch of a job!

Re: Roller Rocker Adjustment

When metal expands so the gap should actually get smaller.

Re: Roller Rocker Adjustment

When you get settings with cams they are for hot arent they.

Re: Roller Rocker Adjustment

Like Brenden said the figure they gave you will be hot lash but just set them initally cold at 26tho, run the engine untill its warmed up enough and like he said the gap will be smaller then simply reset them again while hot to 29 thou. It wont cause any probs or damage to your engine.

Re: Roller Rocker Adjustment

I usually adjust 1-2 thou tighter when cold. If it sounds rattly or uneven I take the covers off and re-check. I run mine reasonably tight.
