Tired and in pain, I tried adjusting my valves Sunday and couldn’t figure out why they were so noisy until tonight when I realized I got metric and English units mixed up (Remember the Mars probe loss a few years ago?)
So, they’re set way too loose, and they’re noisy. Do I have to re-adjust them immediately or risk damage, or can I drive very carefully, keep RPMs down 'till next weekend then readjust them (when I have the time).
Also, should the rocker arms move side to side when that cylinder is at TDC? That seems strange and suggests some wear problem.
