Valve adjustment, I think I messed up?????
Hey I had a valve or two that sounded like it was making a little extra noise, so I set out to fix it. This was my first time to take on this task, and I did everything by the book. The only problem is that my engine is much more noisy that it was before (lots of chatter). What did I do? The manual has a range for both hot and cold, and so I just tried to get as close as possible.(actually, I was limited by my feeler guage and ended up doing .010 for the intake, and .012 for the exhaust. The exhaust valve are on the header side, and the intake vavles on the carb side, right? Did I over-tighten, or are they to loose? Thanks in advance.
