Mark :

Hello, my name is Mark and I will try help you with this.

Mark :

When you have this type of problem then the easiest way to set the clearances is by doing it the long way.

Mark :

ie. set each clearance when the cam lobe is a 12 o'clock to the valve.. This means setting each valve clearance on its own.

Mark :

Not by rule of 9 or any other method etc.

Mark :

Setting the clearance when the cam lobe is perpendicular to the valve stem.

Mark :

If they are still noisy after setting them this way, then either the cam is worn, the followers are worn or a combination of both.
