    Default Where can I get valve clearance data for my noisy lifters?

    G'day All,

    I've got an '89 735 with usual noisy lifters. Can anyone give me the valve clearance data or a location I can find it so I can get them tightened up and stop my prestige motor vehicle from sounding like an old Mack truck?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    tighten them up and get ready for a new cam! The odds on it just being clearances at that age are low,assuming its a 6 pot,its head off time.If its a V8, time to go.Unless Winfred has a trick for getting the cam out without taking the head off that is??
