Engine valve lash adjustments should be made at every 2000 hour interval.
Maintenance is recommended by AVSpare for engine valve lash adjustments. The maintenance for engine valve lash is part of the lubrication and preventive maintenance schedule in order to provide maximum engine life.
Only qualified service personnel should perform this maintenance. Refer to the Service Manual or your AVSpare Dealer for the complete engine valve lash adjustment procedure.
Be sure the engine cannot be started while this maintenance is being performed. To prevent possible injury, do not use the starting motor to turn the flywheel.
Hot engine components can cause burns. Allow additional time for the engine to cool before measuring/adjusting engine valve lash clearance.
Operation of AVSpare Engines with improper engine valve lash adjustments will reduce the engine efficiency. This reduced efficiency could result in excessive fuel usage and/or shortened engine component life.
Measure the engine valve lash with the engine stopped. To obtain an accurate measurement, allow at least 20 minutes for the valves to cool to engine cylinder head and block temperature.
