882993md posted a topic in Engine and DrivetrainHi everyone: I just adjusted the valves on my 260z (first time ever performing valve adjustment on any car). I did get the engine hot and had all my tools ready and I had antiseize on the sparks plugs. It took me a while and by the time I was done with the last set the engine was barely warm. I’m thinking I should try it again with the engine still hot when I’m done? I also had to redo several of them as I was tightening the lash was thrown off and when I double checked it was too tight and I had to redo it. Any tips for holding the setting while tightening the 17mm locknut? Lastly is it ok to get the 17mm locknut really tight with a wrench, then come back later to torque it to specs, or would I need to torque it from the outset? Howard 1974 260z
