Video: Valve Lash Made Easy with Proform
Our friends over at Proform Parts have their hands in a little bit of everything, especially when it comes to making engine building easier for the everyday garage mechanic. They’ve came out with an incredibly easy and affordable set of tools to set your valve lash anywhere and anytime you need to get the job done.
Weekly, Proform uploads YouTube videos to their channel where we actually show you how to use various tools and parts. This past week was the Valve Lash Wrench Set. These tools are very easy to use as they help you do the job of two hands with just one.
The set comes in four different variations including, 9/16-inch set with 3/16- & 7/32-inch, 7/16-inch set with 1/8- & 5/8-inch set with 3/16- & 7/32-inch and 1/2-inch set with 3/16- & 1/8-inch. Needless to say, there’s a set that’s useful to just about everyone.
You can get the job done by putting the properly sized rocker arm lock-down in place, position the adjusting wrench over it then, using the appropriate T-handle, start setting your lash by placing it into the rocker arm lock-down. Of course, you need to use a feeler gauge to set your lash to the suggested specification determined by your camshaft manufacturer. Needless to say, the Valve Lash Wrench Tool is definitely one that could always find a cozy place to live in your toolbox and get plenty of use.
