adjusting valve clearance - confused

Postby flateric » Tue Aug 23, 2016 4:48 pm

hi Guys,

After 71k genuine miles on my fto it's time to check and adjust the valve clearance on my GPX. I have done this multiple times on hondas but never did this on a mivec so i checked the web for instructions. i found the workshop manual which clearly instructs to set the piston at TDC. (Cam lobes pointing away from each other or towards each other depending on which cilinder head you work on, rear or front)

However.. the instruction at ... appets.pdf states that i have to ensure that the nose of the cam lobe for the valves you’re adjusting is vertical, relative to the cam carrier.

I am confused now :roll:

please help!

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive, anyway.
