2005-04-24 | Example Xfig Diagrams | Adjusting The Intake and Exhaust Valves

The valves were making quite a bit of noise, and were in need of adjustment. One thing that is quite misleading is that the 1963 technical service manual for the Rambler American is actually wrong in one of the diagrams (figure 8, page 3) on which valves are the intake and exhaust valves. Now, they just missed one, is all, but if you read the way we do, starting at number one and following towards six, by the time you get to the end you miss a valve and have to start over. Here is a diagram of the exhaust and intake valves:

This was drawn with Xfig. Here is the fig file. The settings for the valves are written right on the intake manifold:

I find it easier to mark the type of valve on the seat of the valve cover:

As long as I have a part off, I like to clean it up and paint it. Next to my cleaned and painted valve cover, you can see the freshly rebuilt and painted Carter 2 barrel WCD-3535S:

The valve cover grommets are out of a Fel-Pro FS 7723 B-3 gasket set. The individual part number is R 11577. You can also see the old valve cover gasket in the picture, behind the valve cover. It had become hard and brittle over the years, and certainly wasn't keeping oil in. The individual Fel-Pro part number for the valve cover gasket is R 5268. Pick Pro Parts has the full gasket set for sale as part number FS7723B3. Here are the pictures:
