FE Engine Tech Topics / Valve lash
« Last post by Stangman on April 19, 2017, 12:22:09 AM »
I had always thought that when you adjust a solid cam if it said 25 hot and you did it cold with iron head and block you would adjust them to about 28 or 29 cold. Now I have been doing that for 30 years. Since joining this forum I read and am doing the opposite. I have aluminum heads and my lash is 18 and 20 hot so I am setting them any 12 and 14 cold because that's what you guys have been telling me. I was just reading comp cams voodoo cams and there was a section about adjusting solid cams and it says for initial start up use hot setting as cold for break in and due to thermal expansion the lash will tighten up and need to be readjusted. What gives who's right

I have backed out of forum posting for a little while - just answering one or two questions from time to time.  I got way too busy and way behind, had to focus on getting caught up.  My car is running and I definitely plan on being at Beaver Springs.

Yeah, alot to do but I'll get there eventually  ;D

I'm using a very old MSD 6A and have been thinking about replacing it with something newer but I don't want to mess around with stuff that works perfectly well, hehe. I took out the MSD dizzy and replaced it with a FAST dual sync two years ago. Not because it was not working, it did well, but I wanted a cam signal as well so I could run the efi sequential.

Sounds like you got your work cut out for you. I got a new MSD 6al and MSD dizzy to put in but I'm going to wait till after I go to the FE Reunion to put it in. Car runs to good now to play around. Also think I see a little water leaking from water pump to block gasket, ya know my fault when I put it together the gaskets were so thin I knew I should have got a different set.  So my stuff is easy

I'll have a look at your video :)

To do list this winter is:
New Aeromotive in tank fuel pump.
Install Aeromotive fuel controller
Fix a gasket leak at the third member
New BeCool radiator and fans
Relocate battery to the trunk(because of the bigger cross flow radiator)
Install complete Acoustishield Quietride sound deadning kit
Replace the Wilwood clutch master cylinder.

and a few other things I am forgetting  ;D
