Suggestions of site improvement welcome!



Just to confirm, 0.010" and 0.020" cold, 0.008" and 0.0016" "hot"??? In all my years of Heavy Duty Mechanics have I every adjusted valve lash while an engine is "hot". Just seem to me that a push tube would lengthen more than 0.002"-0.004" with thermal expansion. Not saying it's wrong by any means, just different than anything I have heard or seen.
