do a search for it and it will have easy directions with pictures on how to do it. It is really easy to do. Just get the right tools and it wont take more than 2 hours for your first time. Then after that like a half hour. Anyone can do it.
There is one for the tappet adjuster ...but you can use fingers and or needle nose as well. What you will need is
3/8 Drive ratchet
10mm, 12mm, 22mm "deepwell"
Screw drivers both standard and phillips
14mm Allen 3/8 drive and a standard set of metric 3/8 allens
Socket for the plug to be removed
zip lock bag x 2
The valves are basic and IMO if you can change oil...you can do them. I did a write up with pics on EVERY step here.
I also have a question. When I did mine the first time a coupla days ago they were dead in spec. So should I wait till 160 hours like the manual says or should I check them again in another 10 hours or so?
Yep Mpeavlers instructions are great. I have done it twice now and the last time only took about 30-40 minutes total.
To me the hardest part was not the heat sheild but second guessing myself after I buttoned it back up the first time. "Did I use the right gauge"? "Did I leave anything in there"? What if I didnt feel it correctly? Maybe I did them backwards? Mental gremlins are the worst. Needless to say it is all good and very easy. Double and triple check everything and you are good to go. And use a torque wrench!
Dido! His instructions are great and it's really not as difficult as it sounds. I learned a valuable lesson so thought I'd pass it along. Be very careful when you tighten the valve adjustment screw. I was using a larger torque wrench that I use on my cars and ended up tightening too much which caused it to break it off! I'm going to buy a smaller torque wrench tomorrow to finish the job. Good news is if you do break it, don't worry the screw just comes out with your fingers, very easy to replace. I have to admit, I freaked out at first thinking I would have take the whole motor apart to fix it! Luckily Mike was able to straighen me out! Thanks dude! :thumbsup:
