I've got a ford Ka that i'm getting ready to sell. The engine is a bit tappy so i was going to check the tappets. On these cars how do i know when to take the measurement? Is it when 1 valve is fully down then i measure the one that is fully up or do i get them TDC and do the 2?
I spin the engine over by jacking the 1 wheel up and turning the wheel while in gear.
Use the rule of nine.
When valve number 8 is fully open you adjust number 1
when valve number 7 is fully open you adjust number 2
and so on.
ok thanks people. ST2 yep it's an 8v.
