Valve Set Adjustments

Valve sets need to be adjusted at least once a year to ensure your rig is not running on poor fuel economy, reduced power and increased wear on engine components. If you are noticing and loud clicking or tapping noises among starting your vehicle, it is time to have those valve sets adjusted. By neglecting this maintenance, you will experience a loss in power, as mentioned before.

 

The valve adjustment process consists of adjusting the valve’s lash to create proper clearance for engine air flow. Often truck owners try and make these adjustments themselves and create more issues for the rig. If the valve is not adjusted correctly, catastrophic engine issues, such as exhaust gases leaking or
major drops in engine performance.
