Valve clearances wear
on: 06 June, 2022, 01:05:25 PM
Those who have checked their own valve clearances several times have you find they tighten or slacken? A couple of exhaust clearances although all were in spec are on tighter end of clearance, wondering is it worth adjusting to more mid/larger clearance if next 16000mls will take it over..

Only checked mine the once at 48,000 miles, results below. There is nothing in the service history to suggest they'd ever been checked prior to my ownership.
