I've asked about the valve clearance before but I can't find my old thread on it. Monday Im going to install the new valves in the 24. What should I set them at?

Also, I think someone said the gap between the coil ring and magnets should around 0.30 I find a brass feeler gage that large. What do you guys you use to make the measurement? I tried to find a Youtube video on the process but came up empty.

I really need to proof read. The line should read, I -CAN NOT- find a brass feeler gage that large

Hey Will - .010" for the intakes and .012" for the exhaust.

If I need a gauge size larger than an individual one I have, I just use two of them added together. Use the .014 and .016 with the .015 pulled out of the way and presto! .030" feeler gauge! =)

Will, a coke can thickness will measure .007. Three of will take you to 28.

Will you need to take the coil ring to magnet clearance measurements everywhere. You want no more than .042" and no less than .025". It is OK to have unequal measurements, so long as they fall in that range. You can tinker with coil and magnet height endlessly and achieve perfection, but it won't run any better.

"a coke can thickness will measure .007. Three of will take you to 28."

Is that what they call "new math"?

3 x .007 = .021 in my book Must the new math

It is the Canadian math in MM

OOPS. Make that 4 can thickness. Hay, first mistake I ever made.
