Having problems with your 1986 Ford Escort 4-Door ?
Need to know if I can adjust the valves on 86 Ford Escort
\015 If they are adjustable, can you tell me what the correct lash should be? This is a L4-116 1.9 litre engine with a carburetor. Thank you\015
Nope! The rockers held down by posts that are a precise thickness and are bolted to the head. If you have noise you need to repair/replace your lifters.
Normally they are not adjustable, look at your rocker arms, do they have a nut and screw threaded into them? if not they are not adjustable, are having trouble with lifter tapping noise? this happens to not adjustable valve engine due to lifter wear, the hydraulic lifters lose their ability to hold oil pressure so they create space instead of elimanating space, and should probably be replaced. Hope this helps, let me know
