fear monger. it's a conspiracy.there's as many that need adjustment at the first 15k mile recomendation that don't
the concequences of what can engine damage than can happen from valves out of adjustment is too risky not to check
valves out of adjustment isn't just performance like when you fail to sync your throttle bodies, valves out of adjustment actually cause the seats & stems to burn potentially breaking and going thru the top of a piston
So, can someone post detail photo's and procedures to perfrom a valve check? If one is out of spec, how difficult is it to fix? Does the cam need to be removed? One or two hours seems really quick for this job.
Not at all. You can mark your chain to make sure that you put the cam back in properly. Everything is very clearly marked though...in the event that you find you need to reset the alginment. The only issue you may have is if you drop the chain into the engine. I think someone last time mentioned zip-ties. I just marked mine with a marker...and put the marker through the chain to prevent it from falling in.Wow, great write-up. The cam chain soulds like its a major issue though. Inspection is one thing..doing an adjustment is another.
