Default How do you adjust mojave valves.

I need someone to help tell me how to adjust the vavles. Please if possiable give step by step instructions. Also what specs are they supposed to be at and do you need any special tools to do this. Thanks.

Ok I started doing it today. Now when you put the crank at tdc the line on the crank should be in the viewing window at the top.... Now is the dot on the timing supposed to be in the front or the back? And do you adjust all 4 valves at once or is it like on chevy 350 where you put it at tdc on the intake stoke then adjust the exhaust then put on the exhaust stroke and adjust the intake. I really appreciate the help. No one else seems to want help out. And as far as the manual... It's not my 4 wheeler and the guy doesn't really want to spend the money. I know how to do the valve adjustment just not the procedure.... But thanks again.

After you get the crank to tdc and see the line in the upper timing hole, you should see two dots on the cams like this picture. http://www.kawieriders.com/forum/att...81-medium-.jpg

That is where they stay while adjusting both the intake and exhaust valves. .008" on both is good for stock.

Thanks alot. I'm going to give it a shot tomorrow. Hopefully all goes good and I can get it running. When I did it today I believe I had it on the exhaust stroke, the dots on the timing were facing eachother, but when I went to start it it was back fireing real bad. What could this be caused from. I'm guessing I adjusted the 180 out. When I talk to the dealer they said you can do it at tdc of either. They were kinda being dicks and were trying to get me to bring it in. But thanks again. I will post how it goes.

I can't remember if you can do them 180 out or not. You'll find we don't put much stock in dealers around here, I only go to mine if I absolutely have to.

After the valves are correct, there's plenty of other stuff to make these run bad, so we'll go from there.
