RR's Tappet Clearance?

Post by Ubert767 » Mon Jul 08, 2019 8:56 am

Gentlemen,
Would I be wrong to interpret Rupert Ratio's "touchy feely" guide for adjusting the tappet clearance on my B44VS as 0.006" for the exhaust valve and 0.003" for the inlet valve?
Thanks,
Rob

I use this method on my B44 Victor Special & seems to reduce the old top end clatter with no ill effects....
