    Engine Stand

    Hi I have a brand new still in the box Sealey ES350 engine stand, would like £30 for it. I dont know what postage costs would be though? Andy
  13. After this post i thought i would take another look tonight. It apears after the engine had cooled, a gap of 0.125 (5thou) inlet and 0.15 (6 thou) exhuast appeared. Was hoping for .25 & .30 (10 & 12), but not that lucky I put a dti gauge on number 1 lobe and had the same result as Shaft which contradicted my last post. On closer inpection i had previosly checked the point of max clearance on No 4 & No 5 valve, next to the center post. When incerting the feeler gauge in a very small movement in the center brg is present. The spring force of the adjacent valves under spring force are moving this center brg clearance giving a false indication that the highest clearnce at either 11 oclock or 1 o clock as you rotate the cam, but in fact the lobes are concentric for the full 150 degrees as per Shafts post. Well we learn every day!!!!! However i am sure this movement is not the the cause, as i used the DTI over the center pillar and could only record 0.03, when quite forcefully applying positive and negative load to the cam. Removed the rockers to double check wear and everything is perfect, the polish marks are exactly in the correct place according to my Des Hammill Ford Pinto book. So i guess it will go back together with the clearance given by Kent, and i will just have to get a more noisy exhaust (he,he )so i wont hear the tappet rattle. Unless of course someone can come up with any further suggestions! Thanks for all the input so far. Andy
