Re: how do i tighten rockers properly?
I'm assuming you are talking about a crate engine. if you get any book like a chiltons, it's in there. I know you go to TDC, then adjust from there. I usually get them close, then run it, and at idle, loosen them to clacking, then tighten until it just barely stops, then 1/2 turn past that. Seems to work fine. The other way works fine too, just more work. Dave on this board is the motor GURU, he knows just about everything or engine building, tuning, adjusting, etc.
