Re: 327 valve lash setting?
Well, I am afraid I won't get any help with the engine info from the previous owner, as he didn't know. I bought the thing to do an ls1 swap, but the resources for that are temporarily on hold, so I am trying to check everything and run this for the time being. Plus these pushrod style motors and carbs are fairly new to me, and am admittedly a noob with them!
Ok, well I just thought it would have solid lifters, because there seemed to be a lot of slack in the rockers... I could wiggle them, and figured that was from having x amount of lash. I didn't expect them to all be tight, but thought some would be or w/e.
At any rate, this kind of just led me to wanting to double check and make sure the rockers are set right because I am idling at 14.5-15" Hg and it seemed low. It could be rings or w/e too, but yep, gotta learn what to do with the rockers, and no time like the present!
Is there a good way to tell what kind of lifters are in there without taking the whole top end off? I don't know what I should be looking for with either type of lifter and their rockers.
