Could I do any damage by putting my valve adjustment off? I'm getting a lot of valve noise right now but its 17 degrees outside and I'm not giving up this day in November!

yes.....if the clearances get too tight, this could cause loss of compression as well the valves burning the valve seats over time...

valve noise usually indicates the valve clearances getting looser - this is actually better than the valves getting tighter.

a little bit of valve noise is a good thing....


check the clearances anyway, if it's time to.

The last month i check the clearence valve and i had to adjust the valve.

I use the measures that the Manual indicates.

I hear little bit of valve noise.

The help of Jeff was very useful
