Valve Adjustment Question's
Posting this here vs 02-03 specific because maybe all service manuals are the same?
I understand finding TDC of Cyl 1. but in the manual it states measure the clearance. Im assuming at this position I can measure both intake and exhaust valves per that cylinder?
Also, the manual states "to measure the valve clearances of the other cylinders, starting with cylinder 1 at TDC, turn the crankshaft clockwise as specified in the following table.
cylinder 2 180*
cylinder 4 360*
Cylinder 3 540*
So I believe its referring to starting from cylinder 1 for each above degree setting. I.E. When im done checking cylinder 2, i can just rotate another 180* to check cylinder 4.
Now the kicker, In between the manual telling me valve clearance measuring sequence ( 1 2 4 3 ) and the table of degrees per cylinder, it refers to a chart that states: "degrees that the crankshaft is turned COUNTER clockwise (this is a reference to a picture)
Confuses me because everything else refers to clockwise.
This info im supplying is fom the downloaded service manual (pdf) 3-10
Any advice appreciated!
